Lockfast G74 Multi-GasketMaker is an orange, fast cure, semi rigid, general purpose gasket maker. It is designed to seal close-fitting joints between flanges and faces. Ideal for use on machined and rigid, metal flanges. Typically used as a form-in-place gasket, on rigid connections such as gearbox and engine casings, as it has a high oil resistance. The product cures when confined between close-fitting metal surfaces and provides resistance to low pressures immediately after assembly making it ideal for the testing of airtight seals.
Directions For Use
1. For optimum performance surfaces should be clean and free of grease.
2. If the material is an inactive metal consider using activator.
3. Shake the product thoroughly before use. Apply several drops to parts to be sealed.
4. Assemble as required.
5. To prevent the clogging of the nozzle, do not let the tip touch metal surface during application.
Fixture Time vs. Substrate
There may be a difference in fixture speed and strength based on the substrate. As opposed to passive materials such as stainless steel or zinc dichromate, anaerobic adhesives will reach full strength more rapidly with active materials such as mild steel and brass.
For more information on strength of bond and cure time, please see the Lockfast gasketing and pipe sealants technical information sheet.
Disassembly and Clean-up
Remove with standard hand tools. In circumstances where hand tools do not work, use localised heat, disassemble while hot. To remove cured product use a combination of solvent and abrasion such as a wire brush.
