Hernon Manufacturing ™ designs custom formulas for specific manufacturing applications. Above, the pictured sprinkler heads are prepared for installation with the application of Dripstop® 920 onto the threaded assembly.
Dripstop® thread sealants offer many advantages over conventional sealants like tape or pipe dopes. Dripstop® sealants harden without shrinkage in the joints, creating a tough, insoluble, vibration-proof seal that will not leak even if threads are damaged. This is because they are 100% active and contain no solvents to evaporate. Dripstop® sealants will not shred like tape or generic pipe dope. In addition, these sealants are not subject to cold flow, pressure and temperature phenomena like non-hardening dopes.
Custom Thread Sealant Formulas
Hernon Manufacturing ™ offers specialized thread sealants designed to resist leaks and corrosion. Expert chemists have designed these sealants for use in pressurized fluid systems. Since 1978 Hernon® has produced custom adhesive and sealant formulas. Today, Hernon Manufacturing ™ maintains a library of over 5000 unique formulas. Hernon® engineers keep each formula to support a specific manufacturing application.
As a Total Solutions provider, Hernon Manufacturing ™ also offers dispensing systems for pipe thread sealants. Hernon’s equipment division developed the Autosealer® line of dispensers to apply metered amounts of sealant directly to male fittings. These thread sealant-dispensing systems are not only easy to use, but they also reduce product waste. Engineering teams build Hernon® dispensing systems with a focus on maximizing user control over the dispensing process. This control helps users to boost labor productivity as well as improve the efficiency of sealant and energy use.
