Gasket Sealant and its Industrial Benefits

Gasketing is a sealant between two flanges assembled with screws. The Loctite gasket sealant completely fills the space between the flange surfaces, thereby preventing the escape of gaseous or fluid materials in composite machine parts or pipe connections. A gasket sealer has a wide range of industrial applications and benefits, and it can be used with various materials.

Application of the sealant
The sealant for gasketing can be used with many different types of materials including various metals, wood, plastic, rubber, ceramics, glass, and even concrete. The type of sealant selected for a specific application depends on the material to be sealed, environmental conditions, temperature, and operating pressures in the system.

Requirements of the sealant
With gasketing, it is particularly important that the sealant remains intact and leak-proof over the entire life of the connection.
