Loctite 518 Gasket Sealant
Designed especially to have medium-strength, general purpose gasketing product – excellent contamination tolerance. Also ideal for use on casted iron, steel and aluminium flanges.
LOCTITE® 518 also cures when confined in the absence of air between close-fitting metal surfaces. Additionally, it is an anaerobic gasketing material designed for use on rigid iron, aluminium, and steel flanged mating surfaces. Fills gaps up especially to 0.25mm and forms a flexible, chemical-resistant seal that will not tear or decay. Also, 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.
