Applications

Sealings can be safely Made on brass, copper, stainless steel, cast iron, galvanised, chromed and nickel plated parts. Supplied in a handy, pocket sized, protective container complete with built-in cutter.

Directions For Use:

1. Clean parts with a wire brush prior to application of product.

2. Hold the end of the Pipe Sealing Cord against the male nipple with one finger approximately two threads away from the end.

3. Wind the fiber onto the pipe threads in the same direction of the thread helix starting from the end of the pipe. For optimum performance, the grooves of the threads should be filled without completely masking the pitches of the thread.

NOTE: It is not necessary to follow the valley of the thread.

4. CAUTION: Do not over-apply the Pipe Sealing Cord. Excessive material tends to be pushed off as fittings are assembled, and it also becomes mechanically more difficult to complete the engagement.

5. Cut the required length off with the integrated cutting tool and smooth the loose end onto the pitches of the pipe thread.

6. LOCTITE 55 Pipe Cord™ can be adjusted up to 45° after tightening.
