Gasket sealants are liquid adhesives used to secure gaskets in place. They act by filling the surface irregularities between mating flanges. Using sealants stops heat, water, air and other contaminants from leaking or getting into the machinery. It also reduces the chance of mechanical breakdown as parts rub against each other. Gasket sealants are flexible, to accommodate flanges that move while in service.
Gasket sealants are available in the form of sprays, pastes and glues. They can be used on a wide range of materials. They usually cure at room temperature or ambient humidity. As they harden into a thermoset plastic, they form a unit with the metal flanges against stress and leakages.
Gasket sealants are most commonly used in vehicle engines. They have many other applications in different industries.

- Easy to use: Gasket sealants are easy to apply manually. They are 1-part: there is no need to mix components. They cure at room temperature. Sealants are applicable to any shape and size of flanges.
- Versatile: They can be used with many different types of materials. Products that are optimised for use on specific substrates are available. These include plastic, rubber, metals, glass and ceramics.
- Impermeable: They make joints oil-, water-, and air-tight. They prevent leaks and are pressure-resistant. They also have excellent chemical resistance and electrical insulation properties.
- Cost effective: Only a small amount of product is needed to provide sealing. Using sealants reduces tooling and inventory costs.
