High-strength pipe thread seal
A recurring problem, how can I make threads for filling systems gas-tight under pressure? In the past, hemp and oil paint or lead pastes were used for this purpose. Today, synthetic pastes are used which harden on contact with metal and in the absence of oxygen. We offer a versatile product for easy and safe sealing of pneumatic and hydraulic screw connections, also suitable for stainless steel. Especially suitable for sealing conical / cylindrical pipe fittings with Whitworth thread.
Product features Thread sealant:
Adhesive for metals, high strength, for securing and sealing threaded connections. Approved for gas-tight screw connections according to EN 751-1 (DIN DVGW).
WRAS-approved for contact with healthy (drinking) water. Complies with UBA (Federal Environment Agency) for use with drinking water.
The product is BAM-certified for use as a sealant in the presence of gaseous oxygen up to 20 bar at +60°C.
Can be used on all metals, both in free and forced bonding. Retains its sealing properties up to +200°C.
High resistance to heat, vibration, water, gas, oils, fuels, coolants and other chemicals.
