With over half a century of expertise in the development of anti-seize and lubricating compounds, Bostik Never-Seez products have emerged as an industrial front-runner in innovative protection against seizure, corrosion, pitting, and galling of metal parts. Seizure, which can be caused by a variety of factors including thread distortion, incorrect tolerances in press, tapered and shrink fits, galvanic action, and carbon deposits, makes disassembly of machinery, piping and metal parts extremely difficult. Traditionally, anti-seize compounds are formulated with a lubricant and metal or solid content that has a low coefficient of friction and are brushed on bolts, flanges and other components to eliminate the corrosion that causes a fastener to seize over time. Once the lubricant dissipates, the metallic content is left behind to facilitate removal of the fastener.
Similarly, Never-Seez contains very fine metallic particles in a special hydrocarbon carrier which seals and protects metals parts under the most extreme conditions of heat, pressure and contamination. The fine, protective film of Never-Seez cannot be washed out, burned off, or completely removed by abrasion. When applied properly, Never-Seez allows for nondestructive disassembly and bolt reuse, reducing replacement costs and maintenance down-time.
The question many users have in regard to choosing the correct anti-seize product is, “How do I know which one is the right one for me?” Selecting the correct anti-seize product begins by asking yourself these fundamental questions:
Understanding and knowing how to apply this information to your product selection will go a long way in helping you choose the appropriate anti-seize for your application.
To help you get started, we have provided a brief overview of some of these products, recommended applications and special features:
Regular Grade Never-Seez
This copper-based anti-seize is also formulated with graphite and aluminum to protect parts in temperatures ranging from -297 °F -1800°F.
Pure Nickel Special Never-Seez
This high temperature, extreme pressure anti-seize contains flake particles of pure nickel and graphite. Recommended for use when applications prohibit the presence of copper.
High Temperature Stainless Never-Seez
Comprised of stainless steel, graphite and aluminum-based anti-seize and lubricating compounds. Specially designed for applications that cannot use nickel-based products.
Black Moly Never-Seez
Contains a high concentration of molybdenum disulfide for extreme pressure applications.
Mariner’s Choice Never-Seez
Specially formulated for protection of parts above and below the waterline, Mariner’s Choice is formulated with graphite, calcium fluoride, zinc oxide and aluminum.
White Food Grade with PTFE Never-Seez
Formulated with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), White Food Grade Never-Seez meets FDA requirements for applications in which accidental food contact is possible.
Pipe Compound with PTFE Never-Seez
Contains a special, high-quality grease with Teflon, mica, and zinc oxide. Formulated to provide maximum thread lubrication in a wide range of pipe threads and fittings.
