Managing a water treatment facility means preventing leaks. Even small leaks can be a BIG problem.

LOX-8 Paste is engineered and formulated to prevent leaks in sodium hydroxide, chlorine, sodium hypochlorite, ammonia and fluoride systems:

  • LOX-8 Paste is an inert, non-corrosive and non-toxic PTFE thread sealant and lubricant.
  • It is specially formulated to be immune to the effects of dozens of harsh acids and bases that destroy other sealants.
  • It can be used on metal and plastic fittings, and it prevents galling in stainless steel fittings.
  • It is effective against cold flow leakage and creep.
  • LOX-8 is registered with 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 (Pamplet 164).
  • It is Praxair GS-38 approved.

Several engineers and operators have told us they lose sleep worrying about using the wrong sealant or having contaminated product. The LOX-8 Paste 100-gram Plunger with the dispensing gun eliminates the risk of contamination, has a zero-scrap factor, and allows for easy application. LOX-8 Paste is non-hardening, and, because it is solvent-free, it requires no cure time.

Keep your next big problem from happening by using LOX-8. LOX-8 Paste is the only thread sealant water treatment operators need in their toolboxes.
