has announced the addition of a new gasketing sealant to its line of
gasket makers and sealants. Permatex PermaShield Gasket Dressing and
Flange Sealant is designed to provide superior fluid resistance and also
withstand extreme temperature changes without hardening. Its
non-setting, non-hardening gel formulation stays tacky, allowing for
easy parts removal and repositioning without the need for reapplication,
the company says.
According to Permatex, PermaShield is ideal in high-performance and
high-vibration applications because it seals surface imperfections
between metal parts. With an operating temperature range of -60 °F to
500 °F (-50 °C to 260 °C), this advanced polyester urethane compound
resists common engine fluids, including oil, gasoline, ethanol, water
and antifreeze. It also prevents contamination from moisture and dust,
the company adds.
