Born2Bond
Gasketing

Flexible and durable alternatives to pre-formed gaskets

Born2Bond Gasketing anaerobic adhesives are a single-component, cost-effective alternative to conventional pre-formed gaskets on metal flanges. Flexible, durable and resistant to wear and tear, they can be used during installation or for preventative maintenance. Achieving 100% surface-to-surface contact, the adhesives create a cohesive, durable connection that can withstand vibration, extreme temperatures and exposure to oils, solvents and water. They also offer better stress distribution and, unlike traditional gaskets, do not require any ‘bedding-in’.

A WL Anaerobic Range specially designed to enhance the work environment and ease the EHS assessment of a new product without compromise on performance, is also available.*
