LOCTITE 518 Gasket Sealant

(Known as Loctite 518 Gasket Eliminator Flange Sealant )

*some package sizes excluded

Medium-strength, general purpose gasketing product - excellent contamination tolerance. Ideal for use on casted iron, steel and aluminum flanges.

LOCTITE® 518™ Gasket Sealant is a medium-strength gasket sealant which cures when confined in the absence of air between close-fitting metal surfaces. It is an anaerobic gasketing material designed for use on rigid iron, aluminum, and steel flanged mating surfaces. Seals up to 300°F, fills gaps up to 0.05" and forms a flexible, chemical-resistant seal that will not tear or decay. Parts disassemble easily, even after extended service.

Typical applications include sealing close-fitting joints between rigid metal faces and flanges. It is also used as a form-in-place gasket on rigid flanged connections, e.g. transmissions, gear box, and engine casings.

Our improved formula provides these additional properties:
• Medium-strength, flexible anaerobic flange gasket
• For active and inactive rigid metal flanges
• Cures through minor surface contamination
• Adapts to flange surface irregularities and  gaps up to 0.25 mm
• Gel-type consistency
• Seals instantly against low pressure

Your benefits

• Reduces inventory costs – no need for large inventory of cut gaskets
• Resists high pressure when fully cured
• No compression set or misaligned gaskets
• Easy to automate
• Eliminates manual assembly of conventional gaskets, reduces process costs
