PC 565 PST Pipe Sealant

Thread Sealant 2472

Product Description

PC 565 PST PIPE SEALANT is a single-component, creamy, paste-like, anaerobic pipe sealant compound. The product cures when confined in the absence of air between close fitting metal surfaces. It cures slowly but provides an instant seal. This product is anaerobic with no solvents and no shrinkage and provides a vibration-proof seal that is resistant to most chemicals and corrosion. It can be used on most hydraulic, pneumatic, oil, water and gas connections. This industrial grade sealant develops controlled low strength seals on threaded fasteners to facilitate disassembly with standard hand tools.

Product Features

  • Plumbing

Directions for Use

Recommended for sealing metal tapered pipe threads and fittings (up to 5 cm/2 in) for industrial applications. For best performance, surfaces should be clean and free of grease. Product should be applied to the thread engagement area in sufficient quantity to fill second and third threads while leaving the first thread free of sealant. Product is normally hand-applied from the tube or brushed directly onto threaded parts. This product performs best in thin bond gaps (0.05 mm). Very large thread sizes may create large gaps which will affect cure speed and strength.

Note: For maximum pressure and solvent resistance, allow at least 72 hours at 72°F for product to fully cure before filling and pressurizing the system.
