Thread Compound, Anti-Seize, Graphite-Petrolatum
|Publication Date:||1 February 2012|
This specification covers an anti-seize compound in the form of a grease.
This compound has been used as an anti-seize compound on aircraft engine spark plugs and threaded fasteners and fittings, but usage is not limited to such applications. This compound may be used safely in contact with austenitic corrosion-resistant steels, titanium, nickel, and cobalt alloys, and similar corrosion-resistant metals and alloys. This compound contains graphite which may promote corrosion of aluminum, magnesium, ferrous, zinc, and cadmium alloys or plated coatings and should not be used in contact with such metals.
This specification is the responsibility of SAE Committee AMS-M, because the materials under this specification are formulated and tested as greases. However, the anti-seize qualities are relevant to Committee AMS-B.
Therefore any changes or amendments to this specification shall be made by Committee AMS-M but must be formally agreed by Committee AMS-B.
Safety - Hazardous Materials
While the materials, methods, applications, and processes described or referenced in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards which may be involved in such use. It is the sole responsibility of the user to ensure familiarity with the safe and proper use of any hazardous materials and to take necessary precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of all personnel involved.
