Heldite Jointing Compound

Product Information

Heldite Jointing Compound

Flexibility and Adhesion
The combination of thermal, plastic and adhesive factors in Heldite is unique in sealant formulation. Plasticity combats the effects of temperature and pressure changes, shifting levels and stresses associated with the assembly of dissimilar metals such as aluminium housings bolted to cast blocks. The adhesive factor not only assists gasket location but in general practice has been shown to be an effective locking type sealant for imparting additional security to studs, splines and press fit bearings.

Water Resistance
Heldite is completely waterproof and unaffected by Sea Water. The product is widely used for protecting electrical joint boxes and moisture sensitive instruments from the effect of damp atmosphere.

Anti-corrosive and Inert
Heldite has no adverse effect on metals, rubber or other materials with which it is in contact. It will inhibit stud corrosion and applied as a tank liner (when supplied in bulk tins / drums for paint-on application), will give protection against a wide variety of chemicals. Used as a coating between two dissimilar metals such as steel and brass in contact, it will prevent electrolytic action from the effects of sea water

Non- Abrasive
Heldite contains no abrasive material and will not damage highly machined joint faces or such components as aluminium cylinder heads

Fully Approved
Heldite is manufactured to commercial specifications 68-145/I (same as Ministry of Defence specification DEF 68-145/I which is now withdrawn)

Method of Application to Faces
Apply a coat of Heldite to each face and allow it to remain a few moments until the jointing becomes tacky. Close the joint. All joints must be clean, dry, and free from any cleaning agent

Method of Application to Threads
Apply one coat to each mating thread and screw up immediately, wipe excess Heldite away to prevent dripping, but leave plenty around the immediately visible thread. All joints must be clean, dry, and free from any cleaning agent

Both 125 ml and 250 ml tins come complete with an applicator brush affixed to the inside of the cap
