Anti-Seize Thread Lubricant



EAL Anti-Seize Thread Lubricant

**Recommended for use on all Turnbuckles, Eyebolts, Rigging Screws and Threaded Stainless Hardware we sell**

  • 35 gram Pump Pack
  • Prevents Stainless Steel Threads seizing
  • EAL Nickel Anti-Seize Lubricant is an extreme temperature anti-seize compound which can be used on any threaded connection or press-fit part. A light application ensures firm tightening and easy disassembly of any mating surfaces.
  • EAL Nickel Anti-Seize is recommended where extremely high temperature (up to 1475°C) corrosive environment or electrolytic corrosion of stainless steels may be a problem. It will not wash off and is resistant to acids, alkalis, steam and sea-water.
Seizing, Binding or Galling

All Threads will seize under high tension. It is a well known and accepted problem especially when using Stainless Steel or other alloys such as aluminium, etc. As pressure builds between the contacting and sliding surfaces protective oxides are broken, possibly wiped off, and interface metal high points shear or lock together. This cumulative clogging-shearing-locking action causes increasing adhesion. In the extreme, galling leads to seizing (the actual freezing together of the threads). If tightening is continued the fastener can be twisted off or it’s threads ripped out.

The frequency of threads seizing can be reduced by using antiseize compounds , but not eliminated. There are also other ways to minimize the occurrence of thread seizing, 

Keep the thread clean and away from dirt and grit, etc.

Tighten the Turnbuckle or Eyebolt slowly. Work them back and forth occasionally to feel if it is tight when loosening.

If the Turnbuckle or Eyebolt feels like it is heating up around the threaded part of the body it is because the metal threads are rubbing against each other under high tension. This can be an early sign that it may seize due to overloading. It may be that you need to go up a size to reduce the overloading. 

To reduce the likelihood of binding & seizing of the Stainless Thread it is highly recommended you use an Anti-Seize Lubricant.

**Seizing is not a product fault but is the nature of Stainless Steel material and therefore it is not refundable if you seize your item**
