THESE GAPS MAKE DESIGNS LEAK. We fill them.

Preventing leaks in fluid process equipment is one of manufacturers’ highest priorities. And doing so means designing for leak-free devices. It’s not easy. Gaps, or surface irregularities in flange and threaded pipe assemblies create leak paths that aren’t filled completely by conventional sealing methods like pre-cut gaskets and thread seal tape.

That’s where LOCTITE® gasket and thread sealants can help. Our gasket and thread sealants can stop leaks. They completely fill gaps, forming reliable, long-lasting, high pressure seals.
