    Can O' Worms alert

    What say anybody and everybody about Nylog sealant for refrigeration systems. Looking for other opinions - good - bad and the ugly. Already have my opinion, just curious about the huddled masses.

    Nothing to lose? There is always something to lose.

    A customer, maybe?

    I've worked on some OLD crap and have not resorted to that stuff.

    And I won't.

    If a customer asked about it, I would explain my position on it and the risks. If they were insistent, I would use it.

    It's their equipment after all. If they want to take that chance, and make an informed decision, then OK.

    Works great in Automotive systems. It's a sealant and o-ring conditioner, It's just used on connectors and seals.

    I'd rather you tell me how to keep it out of systems.

    I have used thread sealers in the past and I usually find them in the systems afterwards.

    i have never used the nylog stuff til this week, working with my new employer.

    i think it's pretty good stuff

    and i too wonder what slob is out there getting it into the system

    it's a thread sealant, or at least, thats what we use it for.
