LOX-8 Paste is a PTFE thread sealant that is highly recommended where oxygen or harsh chemicals such as chlorine or powerful oxidizers are present. It is the product of choice in applications where critical safety and resistance to aggressive chemicals are primary requirements. Providing superior performance as a sealant, LOX-8 withstands both high extreme temperatures and high pressures.
Used in environments where an extended service life is important, such as medical, nuclear, and other high-tech fields, as well as chemical processing, industrial gases, and other aggressive applications.
Specifically formulated for wet conditions, but can also be used in dry conditions. It is a high density sealant expressly designed for severe high-pressure applications.
