Liquid surface seal product. It is suitable for rigid metal, eg on the gearbox and engine casings, especially when small oily dirt on the flange surfaces can occur. It cures of air between close fitting metal surfaces and is particularly suitable for aluminum parts where good adhesion is achieved. Immediately after assembly of flanges is given to low pressures (instant seal).
complies with its extremely high flexibility, the claims of the latest anaerobic gasketing technology. Loctite ® 5188 achieved even after heat aging excellent adhesion and flexibility, and can therefore be used for the most demanding applications. OEMs and suppliers have long benefited from the technical and economic benefits of anaerobic gasketing.
With Loctite ® 5188 takes this technology to a new level. This product can be applied by hand or automatically dosed with appropriate processing and metering devices.
