FORMULA-8 is engineered with mineralized PTFE into a shear-sensitive thixotropic paste that wets into and seals threaded joints with strings of PTFE when torqued. Formula-8 is engineered to seal over the entire thread length for the life of the joint in liquid, gas, and vacuum service.
Replaces PTFE tape and corrects challenges associated with tape.
Will not cold flow over time, and will not jam check valves or pumps.
Won’t deteriorate from -400°F to +550°F.
It is stable in pressures up to 10,000 psi and in vacuums 10(-3) torr.
Wets aggressively to threads and cannot be accidentally dislodged, making it especially useful in those hard-to-reach places.
Oxygen-approved by The German Federal Institute for Materials Testing (BAM) and ASTM G72-82 and ASTM G86 (WHS).
Non-toxic, non-hazardous, odorless, and chemically inert.
NSF-approved for use in food processing facilities.
