Prevent Leaks in Cryogenic Gas Systems with LOX-8 Paste Thread Sealant

Prevent Leaks in Cryogenic Gas Systems with LOX-8 Paste Thread Sealant.

LOX-8 Paste is engineered to seal threads and prevent leaks in cryogenic gas systems with Liquid Nitrogen, Liquid Oxygen, Oxygen Gas, or Carbon Dioxide, as well as in systems handling other harsh chemicals such as Chlorine, Urea and Ammonia.

If your company distributes or uses cryogenic gases, you are very aware of the problems that leaks can cause in these systems. We share your concern, and that’s exactly why we developed LOX-8 Paste. LOX-8 is the sealant of choice for sealing threads in high/low pressure situations and temperatures from 550° F to -400° F/288° C to -240° C.

The cryogenic world is full of hazards. Not only do harsh chemicals such as Liquid Nitrogen, Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide make it difficult to maintain leak-free seals. LOX-8 is oxygen-compatible and impervious to Liquid Nitrogen, plus is high density and remains in place. It is specifically formulated for wet conditions so that it retains its resiliency and eliminates the risk of cold flow.

  • LOX-8 PASTE is an inert, non-corrosive and non-toxic PTFE thread sealant and lubricant.

  • It is specially formulated for use in high-temperature and cryogenic environments and is immune to the effects of dozens of harsh acids and bases that destroy other sealants.
  • Prevents galling in stainless steel fittings and bolts.
  • May be used with Fluoramics’ Full Density PTFE tape.
  • It can be used on metal and plastic fittings, and it prevents galling in stainless steel fittings.
  • LOX-8 has received registration from NSF International, and is approved for use in food processing and handling facilities.
  • It has been tested and certified by BAM and WHA International, and found acceptable for use in chlorine systems by the Chlorine Institute (Pamphlet 164).

Eliminating Harmful Chemicals from Sealants and Lubricants in Cryogenic Pumps: “I want to be using products that get the job done without doing any harm to my employees or the environment, and I look for them everywhere I can.” -Zack Swartz, Cryogenic Machinery Corp.
