Gaskets are used to prevent leakage of fluids or gases by forming impervious barriers. For successful gasketing, the seal must remain intact and leak-free over a long period of time. The gasket must be resistant to fluids and/or gases, and withstand the operating temperatures and pressures to which it is subjected. LOCTITE gasketing products are self-forming gaskets that provide a perfect seal between components, with maximum face-to-face contact, eliminating flange face corrosion. A low-pressure seal is formed immediately on assembly, with full cure in 24 hours giving a joint that will not shrink, crack or relax.
Low strength gasketing product for flexible flanges. Good resistance to oil and joint movement.
LOCTITE SI 5910 is a low strength, silicone-based gasketing product designed for use on flexible flanges with machined or cast surfaces (metal or plastic). It is suitable for gaps up to 1 mm and offers a cure-through volume (in 24 h) of 2.75 mm. Typical applications include stamped sheet metal covers (timing covers and oil sumps).
