Henkel, a leader in industrial adhesive products, has long been known for its innovation. The company’s Loctite liquid gaskets have proven to be a reliable, long-lasting alternative to cut gaskets, with the ability to fill all gaps with total surface coverage every time. The company has recently added to its lineup of innovative products with the Loctite 518 liquid-gasket applicator pen — a new roll-on applicator designed to make liquid gaskets easier to apply than ever.
Less waste, less mess
The new Loctite 518 pen combines the leak-fighting properties of the company’s 518 Flange Sealant, which forms a flexible, high strength, chemical-resistant seal that fills all voids, with the ease of use of a roll-on applicator. The result: the application of a liquid flange sealant is easier than ever and now offers less waste and less mess. The pen allows for easy application of liquid gaskets on rigid iron, aluminum, and steel flanged mating surfaces, including surfaces that have minor contamination.
Reliable and cost-effective
Cut gaskets can leak, tear, and relax. They can’t fill all of the voids and surface imperfections. Their liquid counterparts, on the other hand, are far more reliable, filling all gaps and offering a long-lasting seal without tear or decay. Loctite 518 also offers high performance on inactive metals, high blow-out resistance and easy disassembly.
Another advantage of liquid gaskets is that they reduce inventory, as one package of liquid gasket can be used for any shape or size of gasket. And with the new 518 pen, the size and shape of gasket the user needs is always on hand.
A trusted brand
For liquid gaskets that offer reliability, ease of use and simple disassembly, Loctite is the brand name to trust. The new Loctite 518 roll-on applicator pen is the fastest and easiest way to apply liquid gaskets, forming a flexible, high strength seal that fills all voids.
