Hylomar Gasket 2000

Anaerobic curing flexible gasket compound

Hylomar Gasket 2000 is a formed in place (FIP) single component anaerobic curing flexible sealant, which cures in the joint to form a flexible plastic seal. The product is designed to replace traditional solid gaskets.

The thixotropic properties of Hylomar Gasket 2000 prevent migration of the sealant before or during curing. Once cured the compound is resistant to shock and vibration from –50°C to 150°C.

Hylomar Gasket 2000 should be applied to a clean and dry metal surface. The compound may be dispensed by hand from a cartridge or concertina packs. Automated application is also widely used via xy plotter, robot arm or via a silk screen printer. Once applied the joint should be assembled without undue delay. Any excess compound can be easily wiped off external surfaces using Hylomar Rally Wipes.

If joints are dismantled for service or repairs, the cured product can be easily removed and surfaces cleaned for fresh application by using Hylomar Gasket Remover or Hylomar Rally Wipes.
