Intro

Case study – Chesterton ILMRO products – Industrial Lubricants

The disadvantages of commodity sealing tapes are well known to industry; small pieces of tape can break off, clogging precision tolerances such as hydraulic valves, and if the connection has to be re-adjusted, it often leaks. The solution in these scenarios is the Chesterton 800 GoldEnd® Tape, a thicker and more durable tape that can withstand temperatures of -240 degrees Celsius to 260 degrees Celsius. For this customer, the Chesterton tape maintained a positive seal even under extreme pressures and conditions.

Products featured in the case study:

Chesterton 800 GoldEnd® Sealant Tape.

Challenge

The disadvantages of commodity sealing tapes are well known to industry; most tapes are sold on price, not on performance. They usually require 4 to 6 wraps to seal, and small pieces of tape can break off, clogging precision tolerances such as hydraulic valves. If the connection has to be re-adjusted, it often leaks and causes more need for downtime and repairs.
