Leak Lock® Pipe Joint Sealant

Leak Lock® is a thread sealant that prevents leaking of nearly all fluid substances. It’s suitable as a gasket sealing compound and can also prevent loosening of nuts, bolts, plugs, fittings, and other parts. As a sealant paste, it stays flexible after cured, adheres to surfaces, fills voids, and is potable water safe once cured. It works in temperatures from -200°F (-93°C) to 400°F (204°C), as well as full vacuums and pressures to 10,000 psi.

How to Use

Clean Surface: Clean the surface with acetone or another suitable solvent.

Apply: Apply with a brush or other applicator to both sealing surfaces.

Wait: Wait 20 minutes for a tack time to develop before joints are assembled.

Cure: Cure time will vary from 20 minutes to 24 hours, depending on pipe size and temperature of application.**

For Removal: Use any denatured alcohol as a cleaning solvent to remove unwanted spills or mess.

**Actual set times are dependent on pipe size and ambient temperature, but generally are as follows: 0 to 1/2″ = 1 to 2 hours; 1/2″ to 1 1/2″ = 4 to 6 hours; 2″ to 4″ = overnight.
