Sealants

                           

 

Excel Industries provides a number of products for sealing various types of joints and pipe connections these included metal threaded pipes, plastic waste pipes, copper joints and steel ducting. When choosing a product to seal a joint or a pipe connection it is important to consider the fluid within the system for example is it water, gas or LPG because some sealants are more suitable to certain applications than others.

PTFE is the most common form of sealant for threaded joints, there are two types one is suitable for applications when water is involved and the other is a thicker tape and is used in gas installations.

Vicky Green Paste or Boss white is used along with plumber’s hemp for sealing threaded joints and fittings in gas, hot and cold water, oil and air pipes but is not suitable for LPG or oxygen pipelines.

Sealtite is designed to be used for threaded joints in metal pipework carrying gas, oils, refrigerant fluids, LPG etc… and between the temperatures -50°C to 150°C. Only a few drops are necessary to produce a very secure and sealed joint.

Fustite should be used on rigid P.V.C pipes and fittings to obtain strong solvent welded joints. Always apply solvent in a well ventilated space and avoid breathing in the fumes.

For copper joints Excel Industries has a large range of products to help achieve a good quality soldered joint, these include leaded and unleaded solder wire, powerflow flux, LA-Co flux, ever flux, steel wool flame resistant soldering mats, heat barrier gel and Blow Torches.
