Lightbulb Re: Loctite 545 Liquid thread sealer

I agree that thread locker and thread sealer should be used specifically for their own particular catagory. If you want to seal a thread, you don't want to necessarily lock the threads. For instance, if you were installing a gauge you would not want to use a thread locker. Another disadvantage of using a liquid thread locker is you have to/should wait til it's completely dried before pressurizing otherwise leaks can enrsue. Not so the case when using teflon tape. You can immediately pressurize and see the results -

As far as this stuff's concerned, though it sounds like a cleaner choice and prolly much easier to use than tape, I'm a bit too prudent to spend that kind of money when I could get a roll of teflon tape that would last me years for under a dollar. Nice find though........Grainger is teh shizzle -

Dry time on the 545 sealer is about 30 min. I play it safe and always give it an hour.

Much cleaner, yes. Ease of use, no brainier, a few drops on the threads and its works it way around on its own and the best part no chance of teflon getting into your internals.

Ya I've used that stuff before. Dry time is less than Loctite. I always leave 1 or 2 threads at the end bare when wrapping teflon tape. You need not worry about scragglers congesting components. I always use picks to remove any old stuff when resealing things as well -
