This page shows you the part numbers for our cutting and tapping fluid and for our two heat-conductive thread sealants. (Pricing is being updated.)
If you have arrived at this page and you are confused, here are some pages you can explore that should help explain our process and products: Metal Stitching, Products. If you still have questions, you can always pick up the phone and call 800-736-8261 or 209-632-2345 or send us an email.

We're very proud of our sealants. These sealants are valuable tools to have in your shop. They cure quickly to save you time between the repair and pressure-testing. And our sealants conduct heat, eliminating the complications of uneven heat transfer.
LHC724 works well with cast iron, steel, brass and stainless steel. It has a very low viscosity which lets the fluid flow into small pores and voids with vigorous capillary action. This provides extra insurance that your repair will pass pressure-testing the first time.
LHC623 is formulated to be used with aluminum, the installation of seats and guides in aluminum heads, and during the installation of locks in any material. LHC623 is slightly thicker than LHC724 because of an additive that prevents the aluminum from galling. You will appreciate the way this additive lubricates your press-fit parts. You can eliminate freezing seats and heating heads before seat installation. Apply LHC623 and the seats can be driven into place.
Even if they seem like it, our sealants are not magic, just good products (no, make that great)!
