Neolube is famous for being an innovative, high-performing pipe thread sealant in various industries around America and Canada. It is commonly used and designed for locking and sealing of metal pipes and fittings. It does not, however, react well to certain plastics. The compatibility of such substrates need to be determined before use can occur. There are other precautionary measures to be taken into account when using Neolube No. 100. We take a look at some Neolube safety measures below:
