Your Trusted Partner for Gasketing Solutions
The need for high-performing and reliable gasketing sealant materials to keep processes running smoothly is essential. Leaks or unintended fluid intrusion lead to downtime, work stoppages, and increased cost. However, high-quality gasketing sealant materials prevent leakage or the intrusion of fluids or gases by completely filling the space between the flange surfaces. To ensure that the seal remains intact and leak-free, the gasket must to be resistant to the fluid or gas it is sealing. It must also withstand the joint’s application temperature, pressure, and any micromovement.
Henkel’s industry-leading experts have made it their mission to produce high-quality gasketing sealant solutions that meet individual needs. Henkel knows that finding the right gasketing solutions isn’t always easy. That is why Henkel has set out to demonstrate how its LOCTITE® brand of adhesives materials are there to prevent leaks/fluid intrusion, reduce costs, and make it easy to get the job done right.
518™ Gasket Maker / Flange Sealant
LOCTITE 518 is a medium-strength, general purpose gasketing product with excellent contamination tolerance. Ideal for use on casted iron, steel and aluminum flanges.
LOCTITE 518 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. LOCTITE 518 fills gaps up to 0.25mm and forms a flexible, chemical-resistant seal that will not tear or decay.t 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 formed-in-place gasket on rigid flanged connections, e.g. transmissions and motor housings.
