Bostik Gasket 90ml
An acetoxy curing silicone sealant that cures to a permanently flexible, durable rubberized seal.
Capable of withstanding temperature extremes (250°C continuous, 300°C short term exposure), Gasket Red offers excellent chemical resistance to mineral oil, petrol, transmission fluid, antifreeze, alcohols, dilute acids, and alkalis, soaps and household detergents. The sealant is extremely resistant to UV radiation, weathering and ageing. It also performs as an excellent adhesive on non-porous surfaces where an elastic gap-filling bond is required. It has a non-sag rheology and can be applied to vertical surfaces.
Gasket Red replaces cork, felt, rubber and asbestos gaskets. It is ideal for applications exposed to intense heat, such as automotive, plant pipe and housing gaskets, form-in-place-gaskets, construction of chimneys and heaters, connecting and expansion joints exposed to high temperatures, installation and repairs of ovens. Can be used as an adhesive where an elastic gap filling bond is required.
Not suitable for cylinder head gaskets or for parts permanently exposed to fuel. Not suitable for some metals i.e. mild steel, lead, copper, tin, galvanized iron, brass or zinc as it may cause corrosion. Should not be used in an attempt to replace composite cylinder head gaskets, especially where tolerances are predetermined and are critical to engine performance. It should not be used on the back of mirrors, as it will de-silver the mirror backing.
Will not adhere to some plastics such as polyethylene, polypropylene and Teflon.
