Engineering adhesives from Henkel are being used by domestic stove manufacturer La Cornue to seal gas fittings and to lock threaded assemblies.

For assembling and sealing gas connections, the company uses Loctite 577, which is a liquid medium-strength pipe thread sealant that prevents connections from working themselves loose.

It also stops any leakages caused by vibrations or impact and allows fine adjustments to be made during assembly before curing in anaerobic conditions.

The Loctite 243 thread locker is used to ensure that screws or other components do not damage the enamel surfaces of the stoves due to over-tensioning.

Key benefits

  • Loctite 577 is single-component product that is clean and easy to apply.
  • The sealant does not creep, shrink or block systems.
  • The adhesive has DVGW approval and can be used on pipe fittings measuring up to 3in (7.6cm).
  • It provides performance benefits over solvent-based sealing compounds and PTFE tape.
  • It is claimed to be a superior alternative to hemp and paste.
  • Loctite 243 ensures careful assembly and a secure fastening.
