Anti-Seize Compound Helps Prevent Non-Similar Metals Fusing Together
Slide Products, Inc.’s aluminum anti-seize compound has increased performance, higher levels of temperature stability and protection for mold components.
Slide Products, Inc.’s aluminum anti-seize compound lowers friction and torque between metal components, suitable for applications where non-similar metals are in contact. Formulated with more metallic and other solids than other compounds, it is heat stable up to 2000ºF/1093ºC.
The aluminum anti-seize compound has increased performance, higher levels of temperature stability and protection for mold components. When applied to threads during assembly, it helps prevent thread galling and seizing. Even after extended periods subjected to high loads and temperatures, the additional metallic and other solids remain on the threads to help prevent corrosion and make disassembly easier. Water-resistant aluminum anti-seize compound helps technicians reuse damaged or threaded parts.
The compound is available in 2-oz and 8-oz. brush top cans. Free trial samples are available from the company.
Problems associated with the texturing or polishability of a mold cavity can often be traced back to the mold steelmaking process.
Conventional steel tools have some obvious advantages in the mold industry but aluminum proves to be gaining some strength in the competition.
