Loctite®5203TMis a new, easy-to-service anaerobic gasketing material from Henkel Corp. that reliably seals close-fitting flanges against the same temperatures, pressures and chemicals as traditional liquid gaskets, yet removes easily without machining or chemicals. Used to bond and seal flanges in a range of equipment including engines, pumps and compressors, traditional anaerobic gasketing materials can be removed only with solvents or manual abrasion techniques.
Ideal for use on frequently
serviced flanges, Loctite 5203 eliminates the maintenance steps associated with
resurfacing the flange as a result of scraping, sanding or abrasion. This
anaerobic gasketing material resists low pressures immediately after flange
assembly, even before the sealant is fully cured.
Loctite 5203 fully cures in
15 minutes to six hours. This red liquid ranges in viscosity from 50,000 to
100,000 cP and fills gaps to 0.010-inch without a primer, or 0.020-inch with
the application of a primer. This
gasketing material withstands operating temperatures from -65° to 300° F.
