Apply a thin, even coating to the threads or surfaces needing protection. Avoid over-application, which can attract dirt and lead to galling.
Anti-seize products are primarily designed for metal-to-metal applications. Using them on plastics could lead to degradation of the plastic material. It's best to consult the product specifications or the manufacturer.
Generally, Nickel and Copper-based anti-seize products have conductive properties due to the presence of metal particles, while Aluminum-based may have lower conductivity.
Nickel-based anti-seize is often used in extreme temperatures and corrosive environments. It's ideal for stainless steel and other alloys. Copper-based anti-seize is suitable for high temperatures and protects against rust and corrosion. Aluminum-based anti-seize is commonly used for general-purpose applications, especially with aluminum parts.
Anti-seize products are lubricating compounds used to prevent seizing, galling, and corrosion in threaded connections and other metal-to-metal interfaces. They typically contain a high percentage of solid lubricants dispersed in a grease-like carrier.
