When to Use a Thread Sealant
Designed for low and high pressure applications, thread sealants fill the space between threaded parts and provide an instant, low pressure seal. When fully cured, they seal to the burst strength of most pipe systems.
Typical applications for thread sealants include sealing metal tapered pipe threads and fittings in the chemical processing, petroleum refining, pulp/paper, waste treatment, textile, utilities / power generation, marine, automotive, gas compression and distribution industries. Thread sealers are also recommended for industrial plant and fluid power systems.
