Medium-strength, general purpose gasketing product – wonderful contamination tolerance. Ideal to be used on casted iron, steel and aluminium flanges.
LOCTITE 518 cures once confined within the absence of air between close metal surfaces. it’s associate anaerobic gasketing material designed to be used on rigid iron, aluminum, and steel flanged coupling surfaces. Fills gaps up to 0.25mm and forms a versatile, chemical-resistant seal which will not tear or decay. components destruct simply, even once extended service.
Typical applications embrace waterproofing close joints between rigid metal faces and flanges. it’s additionally used as a formed-in-place seal on rigid flanged connections, e.g. transmissions and engine housings.
