Differences between Gasket Sealant Anaerobic Adhesives and Flat Sealing Silicone Rubber featured-en

Gasket sealant anaerobic adhesives and flat sealing silicone rubber each possess unique properties and application ranges. The choice between them depends on specific application needs, working environments, and performance requirements. Below, we summarize the main differences to help users make a more suitable choice:

Curing Mechanism

  • Anaerobic Adhesive: Cures in the absence of air, triggered by metal ion contact, suitable for sealing between metals.
  • Silicone Rubber: Cures at room temperature without the need for metallic catalysts, suitable for a wide range of materials.

Applicable Gaps and Processing

  • Anaerobic Adhesive: Suitable for small gaps (≤0.25mm), primarily through machined fittings.
  • Silicone Rubber: Capable of handling larger gaps, optimal for gaps ≤2.5mm, suitable for both machined and non-machined applications.

Seal Width

  • Anaerobic Adhesive: Suitable for narrower sealing faces, such as widths not exceeding 5mm.
  • Silicone Rubber: No specific width limitations, applicable to wider sealing faces.

Structural Rigidity

  • Anaerobic Adhesive: Provides better structural rigidity, suitable for rigid castings.
  • Silicone Rubber: Less structural rigidity but more versatile, applicable to castings and stamped parts.

Sealing Capability

  • Anaerobic Adhesive: Higher sealing capability, suitable for hydraulic devices and sealing lubricants.
  • Silicone Rubber: Lower overall sealing capability but better immediate sealing ability with lubricants.

Disassembly and Cleaning

  • Anaerobic Adhesive: More challenging to disassemble and clean than silicone rubber, but offers stronger sealing.
  • Silicone Rubber: Easier to disassemble and clean, especially in applications with large areas (like oil pans).

In summary, if you require a high-strength, high-pressure sealant with specific material requirements (such as metal-to-metal sealing), anaerobic adhesive may be the better choice. For applications requiring flexible sealing, larger gap filling, or broad material compatibility, silicone rubber provides a versatile solution. The correct choice should be based on the specific needs and conditions of the application.

Features of MXBON Gasketing Sealant

  • Solvent-Free Composition: Ensures safety and environmental protection during use.
  • High Viscosity: Ensures that the sealant can completely fill any micro-gaps between contact surfaces.
  • Pressure Resistance: Maintains excellent sealing performance even under extreme pressures.
  • Ease of Use: Simplifies the sealing process, enhancing production efficiency and seal quality.

Tips and Key Points for Using MXBON Gasketing Sealant

  • Clean Flange Surfaces: Ensure that flange surfaces are clean and oil-free before applying the sealant to guarantee the sealing effect.
  • Continuous Application Around Screw Holes: Apply continuously around screw holes to ensure complete coverage and prevent leakage.
  • Apply Appropriate Torque: Apply the correct torque during assembly to prevent flange displacement and ensure the integrity of the seal.
  • Not a Filler: MXBON Gasket Sealant is intended for sealing, not filling voids; improper use can affect performance.
  • Combine with Traditional Gaskets: When necessary, MXBON Gasket Sealant can be applied over traditional gaskets to further enhance sealing effectiveness.
