LOCTITE 574 seals close fitting joints between rigid metal faces and flanges. The product cures when confined in the absence of air between close fitting metal surfaces. Provides resistance to low pressures immediately after assembly of flanges. Typically used as a form-in-place gasket on rigid flanged connections, e.g. gearbox and engine casings, etc.
The thixotropic nature of LOCTITE 57 reduces the migration of liquid product after application to the substrate.
