Loctite Tools - LT37467

  • Gasket Maker
  • Adhesives and Sealants
  • Loctite
  • 2.7 Oz

This black silicone gasket maker forms a high-quality gasket that seals the space between matched parts to prevent leakage of automotive fluids and gases. It meets manufacturers' specifications for original equipment.


Features:

  • Seals joined parts in automotive systems - prevents leakage of antifreeze, air, oil and transmission fluid
  • Meets manufacturers' warranty requirements
  • Resists oil better than other silicone gasket makers
  • Won't interfere with sensors
  • Won't corrode
  • Resists vibration
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Quantity: 2.7-fl oz tube (80 mL)
  • Tack-free cure (time required to dry past tacky state): 30 minutes
  • Full cure (time required to reach full set): 24 hours
  • Temperature range (endurance limits of the gasket maker): -75 F to 625 F
  • Ideal gap-filling capacity (gap sizes in which gasket maker performs best): 0.001" to 0.125"
  • Maximum gap-filling capacity (maximum gap size between joined parts): 0.240"


Applications: Valve covers, oil pans, timing covers, water pumps and thermostat housings



Applied as a gel to just one surface of the parts to be joined, silicone gasket maker forms a seal between them, keeping out contaminants. Silicone gasket maker resists oil and shop fluids, vibration, heat, and flexing of parts, replacing many conventional gaskets. Parts joined by this silicone gasket maker can easily be removed. The old gasket material comes off effortlessly, simplifying future disassembly and reassembly.


Because of their ability to flex and compress, silicone gasket makers work better than other kinds of gasket makers when the parts to be joined are made of different materials, which have different rates of expansion and contraction when temperatures change. They also work better than other types of gasket makers on stamped metal parts that can flex and in situations where clearances can be large.

Ask the Experts about this Loctite Tools

  • Can You Drill Holes in Thule Cargo Box to Fit Shorter Crossbars on 2016 Subaru Crosstrek
    Yes, you can drill new holes in your Thule cargo box in order to mount this on your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek. When you drill the holes you need to make sure you maintain the correct spacing for your existing mounting hardware. After drilling new holes, I recommend sealing the old holes with # LT37467 Loctite RTV 598 High-Performance Silicone Gasket Maker.

  • Can I Move the Mounting Spots on my Sears Cargo Box to Work With Bars Spread Further Apart?
    Yes. You are able to move the mounting hardware on your Sears Sport 15 roof top cargo carrier to accommodate mounting it on wider crossbar spreads. You'll need to drill new holes to match the new spacing and then re-seal the box by filling the old holes with a sealant like the Loctite # LT37467 . If you need new mounting hardware, you can use the Replacement Hardware Kit for Sears Cargo Boxes # TH05603 which will provide you with new U Bolts for mounting your Sears box to cross bars...

  • Can You Drill Holes in a Thule Cargo Box to Move it Forward and Clear the Rear Hatch
    Yes, you can drill new holes in your Thule Frontier Cargo Box in order to clear the rear hatch on your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon. I also recommend using part # LT37467 to cover up the old holes so water doesn't get in. The only thing you need to be aware of when drilling new holes is how you load the cargo box. Since the front of the box is going to be moved further away from the crossbars you will just want to make sure you keep the heavier items towards the rear and centered on the crossbars.

  • Recommendation for Adding Battery to Toolbox on Travel Trailer Tongue
    Depending on how you mount the battery inside the tongue mounted tool box like # MT80350, you may or may not need longer battery cables. Since your battery is already mounted in this location, you most likely just need to drill holes and reconnect the same wires. I recommend using the Loctite RTV 598 High-Performance Silicone Gasket Maker # LT37467 to seal those holes to protect moisture from becoming an issue. If you need to run longer cables, I recommend you not splice in a portion,...

  • Recommended Parts to Re-Install Lock Mechanism on 1997 Thule Rooftop Cargo Box
    Thule does not supply the cargo box lock mounting rivets as replacement parts; this is because these are not intended to be removed. But you certainly can substitute other hardware, and that does not necessarily even have to be rivets, to re-install the lock assembly on your '97 Thule cargo box. Since this hardware will see some exposure to the elements I suggest that you select stainless-steel bolts, washers and nuts. Your local full-service hardware store should have a decent assortment...

  • Recommended Retro-Fit for Cargo Carrier With New Car and Wider Crossbar Spread or Replacement Box
    Drilling new holes in your Sport 20-SV cargo carrier will allow you to mount it to your 2018 Toyota Highlander, but it may change the weight capacity of the carrier. If you choose to use this method, then I recommend the Loctite RTV 598 High-Performance Silicone Gasket Maker - Black # LT37467 to make your carrier water-tight by filling the old holes. If you want to consider a similar box with an adjustable base for cross bar spread, I recommend the SportRack Horizon Rooftop Cargo Box...

  • Can I use Loctite Gasket Maker On Fuel Tank
    Yes, the Loctite RTV Gasket Maker part # LT37467 will work well as a sealant between the crinkle (or wrinkle coat) paint and the fuel gauges gasket. The sealant forms a high quality gasket to prevent automotive fluid and gas leakage.

  • Recommendation For Replacement Lock For SportRack AERO XL Roof Cargo Box
    I did some research and Unfortunately there is no replacement lock available for you SportRack Aero XL cargo box.

You could install a simple single-hinged Master lock like Item # 720DPF and then use a padlock like Item # 131D to keep it secure. I have attached a video for you to check out. Contact...

  • Tail Light Gasket for 1999 American Tradition Motorhome
    Unfortunately we don't have a custom fit tail light gasket for your 1999 American Tradition Motorhome. If you are just looking for that watertight seal, I recommend the Loctite RTV 598 High-Performance Silicone Gasket Maker - Black - 2.7-Fl Oz Tube # LT37467.

  • Recommended 2016 Keystone Sprinter Control Box Sealant
    The sealant on the Lippert Control box you referenced is simply a high performance gasket sealant. I recommend the Loctite RTV 598 High-Performance Silicone Gasket Maker - Black # LT37467 as a replacement to keep that box sealed tight from the elements. Keep a wet rag close by when using this as it can be messy and also sticky. It will take only 30 minutes to set but 24 hours to cure.

  • Do You Need To Reseal the Light When Installing VueSMART Backup Camera?
    The VueSMART RV and Trailer Backup Camera - Wireless - Universal Mount - 152-Degree View # HM34FR fits behind the clearance light mounting base. I recommend using the Loctite RTV 598 High-Performance Silicone Gasket Maker - Black - 2.7-Fl Oz Tube # LT37467 or basic silicone sealant # 0160297. The sealant is for the trailer siding to keep moisture out. You can see in our installation video I've attached our installer used butyl tape like # AL64UV.

    For the 2-Piece Polypropylene Trailer Vent for 3" Diameter Hole - Black Item # HMAV2-AVT2 I have sent in an update to resolve the pricing issue, but yes the if you order the HMAV2 and the AVT2 separately you will still receive the same parts that are in the bundle.

  • How to Mount 7 Way to 2019 Subaru Outback With Hidden Cross Tube Hitch
    I understand the frustration, manufacturers are making hitches more hidden and sleek. It's nice having the cross bar hidden, but it does make it challenging to mount wiring because that's the traditional spot. You can route the 4 pole wire out to the bumper through a grommet that is under the spare tire. I have done that many times to get the wires out towards the hitch, you'll just want to make sure the wire is protected and to seal the grommet up with some silicone # LT37467. You...

    Yes, you definitely can mount the Curt T-Connector # C56217 next to your hitch receiver so that it is readily available. We haven't had any customers come in and ask for it to be installed that specific way yet (January 2019) so I don't have a video, but there should be a grommet in the rear cargo area of your 2019 Toyota Highlander that you can push the 4-Way Flat connector through.

In order to secure the spigot end into the neck on the tank you will want to use some gasket maker part # LT37467 on the outside of the spigot fitting or on the inside of the water neck and then use a band clamp part # H03-0009 to clamp down on the waste water neck and hold the spigot fitting in place....
