Fernox LS-X jointing compound and external leak sealer is ideal for use on compression joints and screwed fittings, as it never sets rock hard, joints can easily be undone.
Ready to use without mixing. Does not shrink or crack with age. Suitable for use from below freezing point to above boiling point of water.
WRAS approved product, safe to use with drinking water.
Application and dosage :
When sealing leaks, relieve the water pressure before application if possible. Whilst LS-X is setting, drain system if necessary. Apply LS-X direct from the tube and mould into shape using a spatula or knife previously dipped into soapy water to prevent adhesion or dragging. Replace cap immediately after use. Allow a minimum of 1 hour to set. Time required depends on thickness applied. Spraying with water speeds curing.
LS-X may be used as a jointing compound on hot and cold water services, including potable water, in place of traditional materials. Reinforcement is generally not required, but reinforcement fibre may be used on larger pipe sizes.
The use of reinforcement material is advisable for larger leaks and higher pressures.
