(WINONA, MN, March 31, 2020) Non-touch sterilization/purification systems are used in medical setting to eradicate bacteria, viruses and odors. Ozone is the most powerful naturally-occurring oxidative agent and is a faster disinfectant that bleach. With its extra free radical oxygen molecule, ozone is able to destroy germs, viruses, and microbes that cause surface or air contaminations. Furthermore, ozone leaves no chemical residue typical of alternative detergent or synthetic cleaners, and can be one of the most effective sterilizing tools. That makes ozone systems a popular choice in the fight against viruses such as COVID-19.

Due to the oxidative attributes of ozone, most thread sealants won’t withstand the corrosiveness of the gas. In contrast, LOX-8 is engineered to work with harsh chemicals and will withstand high pressure, and both extreme and cryogenic deep freeze temperatures.

LOX-8 Paste chemistry is created for applications where extreme acids or powerful oxidizers are used. Oxygen-safe, waterproof, and versatile, it is an all-purpose sealant and anti-galling agent. Works great with oil-based systems, hydraulic oils, and fuels. LOX-8 is recommended for use as both a lubricant and as a sealant by The Chlorine Institute members.
