LOX-8® Paste and Grease Prevent Leaks & Extend Service Life

Reliable sealants and greases are necessary on medical devices to prevent leaks in valves and connectors. Unlike many other sealants, LOX-8 is impervious to harsh chemicals such as liquid or gaseous oxygen, chlorine, ozone, and liquid nitrogen.

LOX-8 is specifically formulated for wet and dry conditions. It is non-migrating, remaining where it is applied. LOX-8 is ideal where repetitive assembly and disassembly are required. It is non-flammable, non-toxic, non-hardening, and is anti-galling with stainless steel. LOX-8 is stable from -400° F to +550° F and provides superior performance as a lubricant and sealant. LOX-8 is certified for use in gaseous and liquid oxygen.
