Seals any shape and size flange while eliminating the need to stock extensive inventories of solid gaskets.
Sanford, FL (PRWEB) October 18, 2016
Hernon Manufacturing Inc., maker of high performance sealants, adhesives and the associated dispensing and curing equipment, announced today the release of a new product. Gasket Replacer 906 replaces a previous version of anaerobic sealant, 916, now offering improved vibration and temperature resistance. Gasket Replacer 906 came about when representatives from IHI Turbo, manufacturer of high performance superchargers for performance driven water craft and vehicles, contacted Hernon Manufacturing seeking a liquid gasket replacer with high tolerance for thermal cycling.
Hernon's engineers reviewed their library of over 5,000 adhesive and sealant formulas and selected a sealant with high temperature resistance as a material with the potential to meet the necessary requirements after modification. Hernon engineers altered the original formula to improve elasticity and conducted ASTM standard tests to be certain all criteria would be met. The Hernon lab then communicated the test results and sent samples to IHI Turbo for live testing in the superchargers. The samples met or exceeded all specifications and successfully sealed the superchargers. Hernon labeled the new thermal cycling tolerant variety Gasket Replacer 906.
Technical Data: Gasket Replacer 906 is a single component, room temperature cure, gel-like anaerobic gasketing compound formulated to provide an instant seal. Once cured between mating metal flanges Gasket Replacer 906 provides a thin, flexible, solvent and temperature resistant seal. Gasket Replacer 906 fills voids and cracks in the surfaces of substrates and can replace or be used as a dressing for conventional gaskets. Gasket replacer seals any shape and size flange while eliminating the need to stock extensive inventories of solid gaskets.
