Loctite, the leader in form-in-place (FIP) gasket makers, gasket dressings, and general purpose sealants, offer you a choice of RTV silicones, anaerobics, or solvent-based product to meet your broad gasketing and sealing needs.
Gaskets prevent leakage of liquids or gases by forming impervious barriers between mating flanges. FIP gaskets begin as liquids applied to one of the flange joint surfaces. When parts are assembled, the FIP material flows into voids, gaps, and scratch marks forming a durable seal after cure.
Two common types of FIP materails are RTV(Room Temperature Vulcanizing) silicones, best suited for large gap applications and stamped metal assemblies where flange flexing occurs, and anaerobic compounds, best suited for small gap applications and rigid metal to metal assemblies.
