High-Volume Gasketing Materials

Loctite Corp., Rocky-Hill, Conn., has added four FastGasket materials to its line of high-volume, cured-in-place (CIP), silicone gaskets. All the materials are nonsolvent and applied robotically in precise and consistent beads onto metal, aluminum, ceramic, or plastic flange surfaces. FastGasket 5963 is a gray, one-component material with high fluid and heat resistance for sealing transaxle pans, valve covers, water pumps, radiators, and other parts used in demanding power-train environments. The brown, one-component FastGasket 5964 features low durometer and high elongation for applications in antilock-brake modules, timing-belt covers, and connectors. FastGasket 5965 is a black, one-component, water-resistant foam that doubles in size during microwave cure. The material fills large gaps and provides dampening in plastic housings. The red, two-component 5966 resists fuel on cam covers, fuel injectors, intake manifolds, fuel lines, and other aromatic fuel environments.
