Sealants are substance used to seal a surface to prevent passage of a liquid or gas. Desirable properties of sealants include insolubility, corrosion resistance, and adhesion. Sealants are used in many industries such as construction, automotive and aerospace industries.
Sealant for Gasketing
Gasketing is a sealant between two flanges assembled with screws. The 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.
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.

Loctite Thread Sealants
Thread sealants prevent leakage of gases and liquids from pipe joints. All such joints are considered to be dynamic due to vibration, changing pressures or changing temperatures. Loctite anaerobic sealants cure to insoluble tough plastic thread fillers which prevent leakage regardless of the torque applied.

Threadlockers are single component anaerobic which completely fill the microscopic gaps between interfacing threads. They polymerize to a tough solid when they come into contact with metal in the absence of air.
Loctite threadlocker is a reliable way to prevent the release or loosening of thread joints due to mechanical vibrations or environmental factors such as corrosion and temperature fluctuations. Loctite threadlocker is suitable for a range of applications.
