Product description:
LOCTITE 55 Pipe Cord is a general purpose, threaded pipe and fitting sealant which is wound from the dispensing packageonto the threads of the pipe. It is supplied in containers, which serve for both storage and dispensing purposes. Recommended for sealing metal and plastic tapered pipe threads and fittings up to 4" NPT (National Pipe Thread) for use in industrial applications in aqueous and non-aqueous fluids. Particularly suitable in threaded assembly applications that require immediate use and may undergo small readjustments before use. This product is typically used in applications up to 149 °C. Further information on the product can be obtained from your local technical department:

Steps to achieve the best adhesive results:
1. Clean parts with a wire brush prior to application of product.
2. Hold the end of the Pipe Sealing Cord against the male nipple with one finger approximately two threads away from the end.
3. Wind the fiber onto the pipe threads in the same direction of the thread helix starting from the end of the pipe. Foroptimum performance, the grooves of the threads should be filled without completely masking the pitches of the thread. NOTE: It is not necessary to follow the valley of the thread.
4. CAUTION: Do not over-apply the Pipe Sealing Cord. Excessive material tends to be pushed off as fittings are assembled, and it also becomes mechanically more difficult to complete the engagement.
5. Cut the required length off with the integrated cutting tool and smooth the loose end onto the pitches of the pipe thread.
6. LOCTITE 55 Pipe Cord can be adjusted up to 45° after tightening.
