All such joints are considered to be dynamic due to vibration, changing pressures or changing temperatures. Thread sealing is achieved as the anaerobic compound cures when confined in the absence of air, and between close metal fitting surfaces.
Designed for low and high pressure applications, they fill the space between threaded parts and provide an instant, low pressure seal. When fully cured, they seal to the burst strength of most pipe systems.
