Chemico Joining Cement (125ml)
Chemico Jointing Cement is a Liquid Compound that can be applied to any joint either with or without a gasket. It will effectively seal bolted, flanged or screwed joints and as a liquid it is economical to use and will not squeeze into the interior of a joint and cause damage. It is non-abrasive and will not damage highly machined joint faces.
The adhesive factor not only assists gasket location but has been shown to be an effective locking sealant for imparting additional security to splines, studs and pressfit bearings. It is waterproof and unaffected by sea water. It is anti-corrosive and inert. It is used to protect electrical join boxed and moisture sensitive instruments from the effects of a damp atmosphere. Used as a coating between two dissimilar metals such as steel and brass in contact, it will help prevent electrolytic action from sea water.
Temperature Range: -40 degrees C – +350 degrees C
Method of Application:
Apply a coat of Chemico Jointing Cement to each joint face and allow it to remain a few moments until the jointing becomes tacky. Close the joint. For screwed joint, apply one coat to each mating thread and screw up immediately.
- All joints must be clean and dry and free from any cleaning agents.
- Multiple applications, for example to a warped cylinder head, can often avoid the need for re-machining.
For joints containing washers/gaskets of cork or absorbent material, apply one coat to each side of the washer or gasket and allow this to soak in. Apply a second coat to the joint faces, allow it to become tacky and then close the joint.
