FIP Gasket (Form in Place Gasket)

« Back to Glossary Index

Are liquid or semi-liquid adhesive/sealants which create a gasket in situ as opposed to sourcing the correct size and shape gasket.  Anaerobic form-in-place gaskets are for use on metals.  Liquid gasketing adhesives provide 100% contact between the metal parts allowing reduced tolerances to save on surface finish machining which reduces costs and increases production rates.
