Ensuring Gas Safety with ROCOL's GASSEAL and LEAK DETECTOR Spray

Product News

In today’s fast-paced world, gas plays an integral role in powering our homes, industries, and vehicles, but ensuring its safe and reliable use is paramount. ROCOL, a trusted name in the world of industrial solutions, offers two remarkable products that help gas fitters and professionals maintain gas system integrity and safety – GASSEAL and LEAK DETECTOR Spray. Let’s take a closer look at these two innovative solutions.


ROCOL’s GASSEAL is a non-setting, off-white sealing compound specifically designed for liquefied petroleum gases (LPG), natural gas, air, and water. Its non-setting nature makes it ideal for pressure testing immediately after a joint is made, which is particularly advantageous for registered gas installers working in domestic premises.

GASSEAL operates over a temperature range of -20°C to +125°C. This wide range ensures it remains effective in various environmental conditions. Moreover, it has been rigorously tested for suitability with LPG and natural gas, up to 2.9psi (0.2bar/200mbar), making it a reliable choice for gas-related applications. GASSEAL has also undergone rigorous testing to assess its compatibility with hydrogen, in accordance with the hydrogen compatibility standard, BS EN 751-2 : 1997 Part 2 Class B.

The versatility of GASSEAL shines through as it can be used on quality threaded pipe fittings up to DN50, making it suitable for a wide range of connections. Typically, it finds its application in sealing threaded pipes on gas appliances and their auxiliary equipment. Moreover, its independent testing by BSI to BS EN 751-2: 1997 Part 2 Class B ensures that it meets recognised industry standards.

GASSEAL’s non-corrosive nature is also a significant advantage, as it does not harm materials such as aluminium, brass, copper, low carbon steel, and zinc. In addition to this, it resists vibrations, ensuring its stability even in settings with mechanical movements.

What makes GASSEAL even more appealing is its compatibility with foam-forming leak testers, like ROCOL LEAK DETECTOR Spray. This compatibility streamlines the gas installation and testing process, offering an efficient and effective solution.


ROCOL’s LEAK DETECTOR Spray is a specially formulated fluid designed to identify even the smallest, positive pressure, gaseous leaks on plastic and metallic pipework and fittings. It leaves a thin, uniform film of surface-active agents that accurately identifies any leakage or bleeding of joints.

The versatility of LEAK DETECTOR Spray shines through with its compatibility with most gases including refrigerants. This broad range of compatibility makes it a reliable choice for professionals working with various gas mediums.

LEAK DETECTOR Spray also stands out for its compatibility with most metals and plastics, ensuring that it can be used with a wide array of materials commonly found in gas installations.
Moreover, it has a low chlorine content, ensuring maximum plastic compatibility. This feature is crucial when dealing with modern plastic pipework and fittings, which are common in gas systems today.

Additionally, the convenient aerosol format in which it’s supplied ensures consistent and accurate application, eliminating wastage or spillage. This feature saves both time and resources, making it a practical choice for professionals.

In the world of gas safety and reliability, ROCOL’s GASSEAL and LEAK DETECTOR Spray are indispensable tools for professionals, ensuring the safety of gas systems in various applications. Whether you’re a registered gas installer or responsible for maintaining gas systems, these ROCOL products have got you covered!
