Gasket sealants F.A.Q.

Q: What are the benefits of gasket sealants?

A:  With Henkel gasketing sealant, customers can be sure of:
  • No shimming effect; controlled tolerances mean no need for re-torquing
  • All voids filled, reducing the need for a fine surface finish of flanges
  • Parts that can be disassembled easily even after extended service
  • Resistance to high pressure when fully cured
  • Widely used as formed-in-place gaskets that produce leak-proof seals between mating flanges
  • Prevent leakage of moisture, gasses, fluids, or contaminants
  • Remain a liquid when exposed to air, but cure when confined between mating flanges
  • Provide a low cost, high quality alternative to molded rubber, paper, metal and other hard gaskets

Q: How do you apply gasket sealant products?

A:  Henkel gasket sealant products can be applied manually or by automated methods such as tracing, stenciling, and screen-printing. These sealants are equally effective on a variety of metal surfaces, including aluminum, and most are resistant to gasoline, oil, and other solvents.

Q: What types of materials can gasketing sealants be used on?

A:  Gasketing sealants can be used with many different types of materials including 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.
