Customer Question

Got 2 K body compressor s with leaky sight glasses. Replaced one of them twice. Can we use NYLOG or some other sealant on the threads?

Hello,

My name is Billy.

Have you ever used Copaltite?

If it is just a minor leak the liquid form works very well...but if there is a flaw in the thread, a warp etc, I would use the solid cement version.

The Nylog will work if it is very minor issue...if the issue is like mentioned (a flaw) then the more solid Copaltite would be the way to go
