LOCTITE® 790™ is a solvent formulation designed to remove baked-on chemical gaskets, gasket cements and conventional gasket materials from metal surfaces.

LOCTITE® 790™ is a chemical liquid that works to remove pre-cut conventional gasket cements as well as formedin-place chemical gaskets.

LOCTITE® 790™ is supplied in an aerosol which enables spray application on to intricate shapes with maximum penetration. Also, the product will not run off, even on vertical surfaces.

  • Baked-on gaskets and gasket cements from any type of metal surface.
  • Chemical formed-in-place gaskets, including RTV silicone and anaerobic materials.
  • Gaskets from aluminum components without scraping or damaging machine surfaces.
  • Gaskets from small to difficult-to-reach components.
  • High temperature engine paints prior to repairing.
  • Built-up carbon deposits from interior engine/combustion surfaces.
