Henkel Loctite Introduces Anti-Seize Sticks
Rocky Hill, Conn. - October 31, 2003.... To simplify and improve industrial maintenance, Henkel Loctite Corporation has introduced two anti-seize lubricant products in semi-solid stick form. Anti-seize stick technology facilitates dispensing directly onto parts, is less messy, and minimizes waste from over-application. Convenient and portable, Loctite® C5-A® Anti-Seize Stick is a copper-based lubricant that shields against high temperature seizing and galling. Studs, bolts, flanges, gaskets, and other mated parts remove easily and in cleaner, better condition when used in typical dry service temperatures of -20°F to 1800°F (-29°C to 982°C). Loctite C5-A Anti-Seize Stick can be used on copper, brass, cast iron, steel, all alloys including stainless steel, all plastics, and all non-metallic gasketing materials. Loctite® Silver Grade Anti-Seize Stick is a heavy duty, high temperature anti-seize thread lubricant with a smooth texture suitable for protecting fine threads, snug slip fits, and other closely mated parts. This product lubricates and permits easy disassembly of threaded parts exposed to temperatures up to 1600°F (870°C). Typical applications include boiler and oven parts, jet engines, and industrial turbines. These semi-solid sticks will not leak or drip and can be easily carried in a pocket or stored in a toolbox. Both products are available in 20 gram packages.
