TECHNICAL DATA SHEET
                           NEOLUBE NO. 1260  - PIPE THREAD SEALANT
                                                                


Neolube No. 1260 is a nuclear grade, high performance paste and a high temperature anti-seize compound, composed of nuclear grade graphite and a nuclear quality petroleum-based carrier.   This sealant/lubricant exhibits all the characteristics necessary for long life performance, even under the most severe conditions, including critical service applications up to 635°C (1175°F) and 16 MPA (2300 psi).  The purity level of Neolube No. 1260 allows it to meet the stringent certification requirements of the nuclear power generation industry such as the General Electric nonmetallic material specification D50YP12 Rev 2.

 

Neolube No. 1260 thread sealant paste can also be used as an effective bolt lubricant or anti-seize compound, having outperformed conventional lubricants under tests. 

Each lot of Neolube No. 1260 is packaged in a 1.69 ounce squeezable tube to protect against contamination. When used in temperatures above 255°F the petroleum based carrier starts to be volatilized, however, the graphite component remains present and will perform up to 1175°F. Weight loss begins at about  225°F.  There is a 6% weight loss at 390°F.  Neolube No. 1260 will have good lubricating properties up to 390°F for a considerable period of time. 

 

Neolube No. 1260 is acceptable for use in ethylene oxide service.  Neolube No. 1260 is not compatible with oxygen service because the oils could flash at high temperatures.  The classes of organic chemicals that should not be used with Neolube No. 1260 are those that are highly oxidizing, such as: nitrates, persulfates, perbenzoate and peroxides.  These can be used if the concentration is low (several percent) and the temperature is near room temperature.  An oxidizing organic, even in small concentrations is not compatible if an acid is present.  Unacceptable compatibility for inorganic chemicals would include molten sodium or potassium hydroxide and chlorine dioxide.

 

Neolube No. 1260 has a high chemical purity, excellent thermal stability, low halogen content and excellent radiation resistance, which makes it very advantageous for use in critical service applications.

 

No. 1260 is flexible, compatible, conformable and resilient.  Once applied, Neolube No. 1260, Thread Sealant molds into challenging spaces to fill irregularities and create a superior seal.  Neolube 1260 maintains it's seal even in harsh environments.  In addition to maintaining an effective seal, Neolube No. 1260 exhibits virtually no gasket sealant creep relaxation.  As a result, the need for periodic bolt tightening is greatly reduced. 

 

Neolube No. 1260 is an ideal replacement for Teflon® Thread Sealant Tape*, and other conventional thread sealant materials in critical high temperature and high pressure service applications. 

 

Neolube No. 1260 is recommended for use to seal small diameter, close tolerance threaded pipe joints.

 

Joints sealed with Neolube No. 1260 will be easy to dissemble even after years of high temperature service because the petroleum based carriers do not dry out with time in a sealed joint.

 

Neolube No. 1260 should not be used with gaskets made from EPDM, Silicone, or Neoprene.  Nitrile and Viton gasket materials are compatible with Neolube No. 1260.
