LOX-8 Paste chemistry is engineered for harsh chemicals applications where extreme acids or powerful oxidizers are used. It prevents stainless steel galling and it is a sealant that can withstand high pressure, and both high extreme and cryogenic deep freeze temperatures. 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.


  • Formulated for wet conditions and dry applications. High-density, inert thread sealant.
  • Remains stable up to 550°F. It is nonflammable and nontoxic.
  • Oxygen-safe, gaseous & liquid.
  • Not affected by harsh chemicals such as chlorines, hyperchlorides or powerful oxidizers.
  • A multi-purpose, cross-functional sealant.
  • Allows you to standardize on one sealant, replacing all the pipe sealants in your tool box or factory. Eliminates plumbing errors, standardizes inventory and practices.
  • Oxygen-tested by The German Federal Institute for Materials Testing (BAM) and ASTM G72-82 and ASTM G86 (NASA).
  • Praxair GS-38 approved
  • Approved for use in food processing facilities.


  • Water Treatment, including Hydrofluorosilicic Acid and Sodium Hypochlorite
  • Aerospace
  • Welding systems and bottled gases
  • Agricultural chemicals and spray equipment, including ammonia and fertilizers
  • Off-shore rigging
  • Chlorine water treatment
  • Chlorine manufacturing environments
  • Stainless steel anti-galling
  • Oxygen and chlorine systems
  • Cryogenics
  • Diving gear
  • Nitrous oxide systems
  • Medical equipment
  • Safe to use with plastic pipes and fittings, including nylon

LOX-8 is extremely effective in the water treatment and wastewater industries as it is impervious to the harsh chemicals used by treatment plants.
