Fluoramics, Inc., a leading manufacturer of thread sealants, lubricants and rust inhibitors, has introduced a new application tip for its 100-gram tube of Formula-8 thread sealant. This packaging will appeal to users of Formula-8 who are looking for easier or one-handed application. The extended tip also makes it easy to access hard-to reach areas.


Formula-8 (the original PTFE thread sealant) is a shear-sensitive paste that sheets out into PTFE strings when torqued and delivers exceptional sealing performance on all sizes of threads. Formula-8 is ideal for use in oxygen and fuel systems, hydraulic cylinders, and natural gas applications. Formula-8 has been oxygen tested and certified by BAM and has been approved for use in food processing and handling facilities by NSF International. It maintains stability in environments of -400 to +500°F, and is solvent-free and non-hazardous.


Formula-8 is available in a 100-gram tube with the new extended application tip, 1 lb. jars, and 15-gram tubes. The 15-gram tube is particularly handy for less-frequent users of Formula-8 or those who are looking to include Formula-8 with their product or kit shipments.
