Clippard Gasket & Sealant Tips

Gaskets are recommended for use with Clippard fittings. They provide snug, dependable seals without extra effort or materials. The most popular gasket for static sealing of #10-32 threads is the 11761-2 Nitrile Gasket. This gasket is included with packaged fittings and comes installed on a variety of Minimatic® slip-on fittings. Overtightening fittings with gaskets may have a tendency to extrude the gasket. While this may be a concern, the actual sealing is being accomplished by a small piece of the gasket at the base of the threads.

Clippard Push Quick Fittings Installation & Removal Instructions

Installation of Tubing or Hose into fitting
1. Slowly push a clean and perpendicularly cut tubing into the fitting until it comes to a dead stop.
2. Pull the tubing back gently until the Gripper Ring of the fitting grips onto the tubing and has a good seal.
