At PHEX+ Henkel will feature three of its core pipe repair products: LOCTITE® 55 Pipe Sealing Cord, available in a re-designed pack containing 160m; with built-in cutting device. The latest formulation of LOCTITE® 577, a medium-strength, anaerobic, general purpose thread sealant introduces improvements including higher strength on contaminated surfaces, ability to withstand higher temperatures and high performance on passive metals without the need for an activator. For temporary repairs on flexible hoses and pipes, LOCTITE® 5075 self-fusing silicone rubber wrap is proving popular. Resistant to UV light, salt water, fuels and acids, this non-stick multi-purpose wrap can withstand extreme conditions.
NEW PACK SIZE & AN IMPROVED FORMULATION
By comparison with traditional sealing methods the LOCTITE® family of pipe thread sealants from Henkel provide many advantages. These single component products are clean and easy to apply and do not creep, shrink or contaminate systems. They can be used on pipe fittings up to 3” with liquids, and up to 4” with the LOCTITE® 55 Pipe Sealing Cord. The products create a full pressure seal that resists vibration and shock loads and protects the mated threaded areas against corrosion in the process.
Henkel’s stand at PHEX+ will feature three of its core pipe repair products, one of which is LOCTITE® 55 Pipe Sealing Cord. It is now available in a re-designed pack, with built-in cutting device, containing 160m of the product. This single reel will seal up to 405 joints with a half-inch thread size and 190 joints with a one-inch thread. Suitable for all metal and plastic pipes and fittings – both for water and gas – this product carries all major agency approvals.
In common with many products, LOCTITE® 577, Henkel’s medium-strength, anaerobic, general purpose thread sealant has been the subject of continuous development. Its latest formulation, to be demonstrated at PHEX+, introduces several improvements including higher strength on contaminated surfaces, ability to withstand higher temperatures and high performance on passive metals without the need for an activator.
For temporary repairs on flexible hoses and pipes, LOCTITE® 5075 self-fusing silicone rubber wrap is proving very popular. Resistant to UV light, salt water, fuels and acids, this non-stick multi-purpose wrap can withstand extreme conditions. It does not contain an adhesive but, when stretched and wrapped around a damaged pipe, it instantly seals and protects against air, water leakage and corrosion.
