Solving Problems with Chemicals



LOCTITE Silicone Lubricant 51360 is a non-curing silicone paste that seals, lubricates, protects, waterproofs, and electrically insulates metal, rubber, and plastic parts.

This grease-like compound is mainly used as a moisture barrier for electrical contacts, rubber and plastic lubricant, mold release agent, and packing lubricant for shafts and valve stems. It is also found to be useful as a stopcock lubricant, plug or ball valve lubricant, valve stem packing lubricant, and protector for electrical contacts. It also protects electrical connections against water infiltration, arcing, and keeps moisture from forming a conductive film on electric mounts and insulators.

Loctite Silicone Lubricant has excellent fluid resistance to water based fluids, alcohols, mineral oils and vegetable oils.

Besides the applications as Dielectric Grease, O - Ring Grease, our customers find it useful in vacuum pump sealing, vacuum flask air tight sealing, and even in diving gears.
