Fluoramics’ LOX-8® Paste is now being used in every phase of the liquid natural gas (LNG) supply chain, with the company this week unveiling that its innovation has been qualified and specified for use by another global equipment manufacturer.

Engineered for use in applications with LNG, oxygen and chlorine, the sealant is now the choice for sealing threads in extreme high/low pressure situations and temperatures as low as 400°F for the unnamed manufacturer.

The manufacturer will also use LOX-8 with threaded connections in LNG gas systems.

On the news, Gregg Reick, President and Chief Engineer at Fluoramics, said, “The qualification process included extensive testing and has taken years to complete.”

“LOX-8 Paste is now being used in every phase of the liquid natural gas supply chain, including on-board vehicle fuelling systems. We are proud to be selected as their sealant supplier.”
