LOCKSEAL PTFE is a single component, high viscosity anaerobic pipe sealant material. This product cures when confined in the absence of air between close fitting metal surfaces.
Used to lock and seal hydraulic and pneumatic fittings, servomechanismes, and fine-filtration systems. This PTFE based product is specially formulated to offer lubricity for easy assembly.
Chemical Type Methacrylate ester
Application time min. 20 - 30
For best performance surfaces should be clean and free of grease. Product should be applied to the thread engagement area in sufficient quantity to fill all engaged threads. This product performs best in thin bond gaps, (0.05mm) maximum gap =0.30 mm. Very large thread sizes may create large gaps which will affect cure speed and strength. This product is designed to give controlled friction, (torque/tension ratio), during assembly. In critical tightening applications this ratio should be confirmed.
Product shoud be ideally stored in a cool, dry location in unopened containers at a temperature between 8°C to 28°C unless otherwise labelled. Optimal storage is at the lower half of this temperature range. To prevent contamination of unused product, do not return any material to its original container.
