LOX-8 Paste

LOX-8 Paste chemistry is engineered for harsh chemicals situations where extreme acids or powerful oxidizers are used. It prevents stainless steel galling and it is a chemical-resistant 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.
