precote® 5 – Sealant for Threaded Fasteners

precote® 5 provides immediate sealing for assembly components such as screws, studs,
plugs, nuts and pipe threads. It seals against gases, petroleum-based products, brake fluid
and other liquids. Non-reactive and water-based, precote® 5 provides immediate sealing for
all types of threaded fasteners including under the head applications.


precote® 5 provides sealing for assembly components such as screws, studs, plugs and pipe threads – both cylindrical/cylindrical and cylindrical/conical parts. It seals against gases, petroleum basis products, glycol/water 50/50, tap water, brake fluids, both gasoline and diesel fuels and other liquids. In addition to being used as a sealing material for rivets, it can also be applied to under the head of screws or plugs with collars for under-head sealing.

It also provides low-strength locking for threaded fasteners during transportation with easy disassembly.
