Gaskets aim to prevent leakage of fluids or gases by filling the space between the surfaces of the flanges – and they must remain intact and leak-free for a prolonged time, especially in automotive engineering. Henkel will be holding a webinar on February 26 at 10.00 CET on how to seal powertrain flanges under the harshest conditions using liquid sealants from its Loctite brand for this challenging task.
In this webinar, Georg Schubert and Erwin Rauh, will present an overview of the latest sealing product innovation like Henkel’s polyacrylate range, which is highly resistant to aggressive transmission oils and gear lubes. In addition, the presentation will give design specifications for liquid sealants. To ensure the zero leak requirements are met, it is essential that the joints are designed in accordance with gasket-specific guidelines.
