Sealant for Demanding Applications


Sealants for threaded joints on machines, devices and components which are used in the harshest environments, in which they are exposed to chemicals such as chlorine or powerful oxidisers such as oxygen, have to meet specific requirements. If anaerobic sealants are used in these circumstances, there is the risk of an explosion occurring.

A sealant produced by Hernon Manufacturing Inc., represented in Germany by 4 Advanced Technologies, which is chemically inert, non-flammable and nontoxic meets the required standards. It is hydrophobic, temperature resistant up to 450 °F or 232 °C and is ideal for use in cryogenic and high-pressure applications (10,000 psi with 1/4” NPT threads). This product can also be used for sealing components that have to be repeatedly disassembled and assembled. Typical applications include oxygen and hydrogen systems, hydrogen peroxide and ozone systems, medical equipment, water treatment plants, paper processing, oil drilling and pumping facilities, plasma etching systems and welding machines.
