In looking at the Innotec Easy Gasket website (https://www.innotec.eu/oth/en/product...) they do not provide any type of compatibility guide or even a safety data sheet for the product that would indicate the base characteristics of the material or its composition.
It appears that it is some type of 2-part silicon or rubber sealing compound, but because they do not provide any details there is no way for us to tell without fully testing the material if it is compatible with our Dielectric Coolants. However, because they are saying it is usable for engine crank seals and other engine seals that would come into contact with oils and other lubricants this material MAY be compatible with our synthetic fluids.
Another characteristic that is not clear is how long this material needs to “set” before coming in contact with hydrocarbons. Most two part sealing materials have a tacky set time, a seal time, and a fully cured time. We always recommend allowing the material to fully cure because once it becomes in contact with our Dielectric Coolants these types of materials cannot off-gas and therefore will not fully cure. Their use instructions say 5mins to tacky set, 20mins to tightening the components together, but they do not give a full cure time. We would recommend allowing this material to fully cure for 6-8 hours before allowing it to come in contact with our Dielectric Coolants, to allow the material to fully cure.
