High-performance Assembly Pastes and Sprays
Three product variants are available for various areas of application:
WEICON Anti-Seize Standard Grade consists of selected, finely ground, metallic solid lubricants and a high-quality synthetic oil mixture. This combination has been proven worldwide for many decades in a number of applications.
Nowadays, increasingly high alloy steels and light and nonferrous metals are being used. When metalliferous assembly pastes are used, unwanted interactions between the paste and the material cannot be ruled out.
Copper Paste is a protecting, separating and lubricating agent for highly stressed parts, used as assembly lubricant for threaded joints and sliding surfaces of all kinds. Even with high temperatures and corrosive atmospheres,
fretting corrosion and seizing is prevented efficiently.
All kinds of influencing factors, such as moisture and friction, lead to damage due to corrosion, seizure, and wear on machines and installations. Extensive repair and maintenance work at considerable cost are the result.
Especially under critical conditions of application, such as:
- High operation temperatures
- High pressure loads
- Outdoor weather conditions
- Aggressive chemicals
- The influence of other media
such consequences frequently occur.
The safe protection of work pieces and structures made of steel and other metals is thus absolutely necessary for the rational and economic operation of technical installations.
WEICON Anti-Seize assembly pastes are especially developed for these requirements. They are used as protecting and separating agents, as well as lubricants, for highly stressed parts, especially at high temperatures. Optimally balanced solids contents as well as selected additives permit a wide range of applications, especially in this area.
The basic components in WEICON Anti-Seize are made of synthetic oils, which have a considerably lower sulphur content than products containing mineral oil. A residuefree vaporisation of the oil at temperatures between +200°C and +250°C is thus possible. This is particularly important in the case of stainless steels (e.g. for VA material) to prevent stress-corrosion cracking.
Due to the special formulation and the very fine grinding of the solids contained in WEICON Anti-Seize, irregularities in the surface being protected are completely filled – even to a layer thickness of only 12 µm. Only a perfectly sealed surface guarantees a reliable protection against corrosion. An additional sealing effect thus results for special applications, such as flange connections.
WEICON Anti-Seize provides protection against:
- Corrosion – seizure - wear
- Stick-slip phenomena
- Oxidation and fretting corrosion
- Electrolytic reactions ("cold welding")
WEICON Anti-Seize is free of sulphurous additives and halogens, well-adherent and abrasion-proof, and resistant against hot, cold, and salt water. The extremely low friction coefficient also permits easy disassembly from machines and installations.
In addition, WEICON Anti-Seize assembly pastes are excellent lubricants for statically high-stressed parts and for slowly rotating installations, as long as corresponding relubrication intervals are observed.
With its dual function as a lubricant and corrosion protection agent, WEICON Anti-Seize thus becomes a rationalisation factor, both in terms of saving time and reducing costs.
WEICON Anti-Seize is used sparingly. At a layer thickness of 0,01 mm, 1 kg suffices to cover a surface area of approximately 45 m².
