Fluoramics was founded in 1967 when founder Frank Reick developed the world’s first engineered PTFE pipe sealants. Fluoramics’ sealants are oxygen-safe, non-hazardous, capable of surviving high temperatures and cryogenic cold, and impervious to the worst acids and caustic chemicals.
Formula-8, the original PTFE thread sealant, is a shear-sensitive paste that sheets out into PTFE strings when torqued and delivers exceptional sealing performance on all sizes of threads. Formula-8 is ideal for use in oxygen and fuel systems, hydraulic cylinders, and natural gas applications.
LOX-8 Paste is a PCTFE/PTFE thread sealant and lubricant that is specifically formulated for use in wet, high-temperature and high-pressure environments, as well as in low-temperature cryogenic environments. LOX-8 is approved for use with liquid and gaseous oxygen, and all cryogenic gases. It has also been approved for use in food processing and handling facilities by NSF International.
