As a leader in industrial adhesive products, Henkel Canada Corporation always pushes for innovation. Now, the company has released its latest development: Loctite 518 liquid gasket applicator pens. These liquid gaskets are more reliable than cut gaskets, in that they fill all gaps, voids, and surface imperfections with complete surface coverage. In addition, every required shape and size is always on hand.
Gasket sealants are used to prevent leakage of fluids or gasses by forming impervious barriers. They cure in the presence of metal and the absence of air to form a durable seal between components.
Gasket sealants also eliminate corrosion and provide an instant, low-pressure seal on an assembly after full cure. Gasket sealants will not shrink, crack, or relax, and they resist displacement better than conventional gaskets.
More reliable than cut gaskets
With the new Loctite 518 applicator pens, Henkel has devised the fastest and easiest way to apply liquid gaskets. These adhesive sealants form flexible, strong, chemical-resistant seals that fill voids without tearing, breaking, distorting, or decaying. It is more reliable than a standard cut gasket, in that it fills all gaps, voids, and surface imperfections with complete coverage. Users can apply these liquids to seal mating rigid machined flanges of various metals such as cast iron, aluminum, and steel, even with minor contamination. Another key benefit is that one package is sufficient for any size or shape of gasket, so inventory is reduced.
Save on cost and allow for greater design flexibility
For liquid gaskets that offer reliability, ease of use, and simple disassembly, Loctite is the brand name to trust. See how this applicator allows you to make fast and easy liquid gaskets at www.henkel-adhesives.com/us/518sample or contact us.
