Any time you are using a threaded connection, thread sealant and anti-seize are commonly used. Anti-Seize is a highly refined blend of aluminum, copper and graphite lubricants. Use during assembly to prevent galling, corrosion and seizing due to weathering or chemicals. Anti-Seize assures easier disassembly. Temperature range: -60°F to 1600°F (-51°C to 871°C). Salt, corrosion and moisture resistant – ideal for marine use.
The Teflon thread sealant outperforms tapes and pipe dopes by sealing and resisting pressure in air, oil, diesel fuel and hydraulic systems. Remaining pliable at higher and lower temperatures with a temperature range -65°F to 300°F (-54°C to 149°C); By filling the space between threaded metal parts, Thread Sealants cure to a pliable seal to prevent leakage caused by vibration loosening, tape shredding, solvent evaporation, damaged threads, and temperature cycling. Designed for low and high pressure applications, Thread Sealants seal instantly for on-line low pressure testing. When fully cured, they seal to the burst strength of most piping systems.
