Thread Sealants seal and secure metal pipes and fittings by filling the space between threaded metal parts. Thread Sealants prevent leakage caused by vibration loosening, tape shredding, solvent evaporation, damaged threads, and temperature cycling. Designed for low and high-pressure applications, Thread Sealants seal instantly for on-line low pressure testing. When fully cured, they seal to the burst strength of most piping systems. The high lubricating properties of Permatex ® Thread Sealants ease assembly and prevent galling of the threads. For system repairs, parts may be disassembled with basic hand tools.
