MODUK - DEF STAN 80-162
Sealing Compound (Two-Part), for Screw Threads, Type QX (Cashew Polymer Base, RD 1286)
|Publication Date:||18 August 2000|
This standard specifies requirements for a two-component compound which cures at room temperature and is used, mainly, for sealing screw threads.
The designation 'Type QX' indicates that the material may be suitable for certain applications where compatibility with explosives is a requirement. However, compatibility with all explosives in all environments has not been established and Design Authorities should seek advice on particular applications. Further information may be obtained from Defence Standard 13-102; Testing of Materials which are Required to be Compatible with Explosives.
Advice to users and contractors is contained in Annexes J, K and L to this standard.
