What is Loctite 510 used for?
LOCTITE 510 is a high temperature resistant anaerobic sealant which cures when confined in the absence of air between close-fitting metal surfaces. Typical applications include sealing rigid flange faces on transmissions and engine casings. It ensures an instant, low-pressure seal.
What is the difference between Loctite 510 and 518?
Loctite 510 : Gasketing Product- high temperature and chemical resistance. Ideal for use on rigid flanges. Loctite 518 : Medium-strength, general purpose gasketing product – excellent contamination tolerance. Ideal for use on casted iron, steel and aluminum flanges.
Does LOCTITE 518 harden?
LOCTITE® 518™ is a single component, medium strength, anaerobic sealant which cures when confined in the absence of air between close fitting metal surfaces.
Does Loctite 518 need a primer?
Henkel has developed a new innovative formulation for Loctite 518 Gasket Sealant that cures through light surface contamination, provides greater flexibility and adhesion as well as improved curing on inactive metals without a primer.
Is Loctite anaerobic?
Anaerobic Adhesives They are typically used to augment the seal or holding force of a mechanically joined assembly. LOCTITE® anaerobic adhesives include threadlockers, thread sealants, retaining compounds, and gasket sealants.
Can Loctite 518 be used with a gasket?
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® 518™ reduces the migration of liquid product after application to the substrate.

What kind of sealant is Loctite 510 used for?
LOCTITE® 510 is a high temperature resistant anaerobic sealant which cures when confined in the absence of air between close-fitting metal surfaces. Typical applications include sealing rigid flange faces on transmissions and motor casings. It ensures an instant, low-pressure seal. The product increases the torque capacity of assembled flanges.
How big of a gap does Loctite 518 fill?
LOCTITE 518 fills gaps up to 0.25mm and forms a flexible, chemical-resistant seal that will not tear or decay. Parts disassemble easily, even after extended service.
Can you use Loctite 518 on steel flanges?
LOCTITE 518 is a medium-strength, general purpose gasketing product with excellent contamination tolerance. Ideal for use on casted iron, steel and aluminum flanges. Use our distributor locator to find your nearest store. * Contact the distributor to confirm that the selected product is in stock.
When to use Loctite on metal contact surfaces?
We do recommend the use of Loctite products on ANY metal to metal contact surface. The engine itself is OK and you do not have to worry about it, but any bolt and nut that connects to it, like engine mounts DO need it. ANY and EVERY nut and bolt needs on the aircraft needs to have Loctite applied to it.
