Oxygen Safe Sealants


FORMULA-8 joint sealer uses Teflon® in a white thixotropic paste to seal most threaded joints. The seals are formed over the entire thread length instead of just a fraction of the total convolutions. Unlike thread-sealing tapes, the size or length of the thread is not a limiting factor. Use in oxygen systems below 125°C. FORMULA-8 won't deteriorate from -400T to +500°F and in vacuums 10-3 Torr. FORMULA-8 is hydrophilic (water absorbing) and requires no curing time. Systems may be put back into service immediately. FORMULA-8 is sold in 3.5-ounce squeeze tubes

OC Three PTFE Paste Joint and Thread Sealer is an oxygen-safe, aqueous-based PTFE formulation. It is a homogenous white paste that penetrates thread convolutions more effectively, and more safely, than PTFE tape. Tested, approved and certified by NASA (ASTM G72) and The German Federal Institute for Materials Testing (BAM) for gaseous and liquid oxygen service. Use in extreme temperatures (-400º F to +500º F) and as a vacuum grease for Mid Vacuum specifications to 10-3 Torr. OC Three is especially capable for sealing oxygen and acetylene cylinder valves. Easy to apply from its 4 oz. (113.4 gram) squeeze tube with extended nipple and resealing cap. A superior PTFE thread sealant paste that contains these optimal properties: Water Soluble - Anti-Galling - Anti-Corrosive - Anti-Seize - Chemically Inert - Non-Toxic - Non-Flammable - Non-Migrating - Odorless.

OC Five Paste is a blended, oxygen-safe formulation consisting of PTFE particles and Halocarbon® oil, producing a superior sealant that is chemically inert and environmentally safe. It has been tested and certified by The German Federal Institute for Materials Testing (BAM) for gaseous and liquid oxygen service.
OC Five Paste can be used as a vacuum grease in High Vacuum 10-7 Torr applications where exposure to corrosive gases is probable. It is a superior lubricant which provides leak tight sealing in a wide range of vacuum requirements. This off-white homogenous paste formulation provides unique sealing and lubricating solutions; its properties remain unaltered over wide temperature ranges – from cryogenic through thermally stable to +450ºF. It is non-flammable, non-migrating, non-toxic, odorless and waterproof as well as anti-corrosive, anti-galling, anti-seize, dielectric and lubricating.
