Importance of using anti-seize with Turnbuckles

Posted by Miami Stainless on 08-Jul-2020 00:23:00

 

Why to use anti-seize?

Using anti-seize with turnbuckles, specially on Econ version is very crucial for the turnbuckle to work best of its abilities. The Anti-seize compound protects against seizure of metal parts, such as thread seizure during installation, differing metal corrosion and protecting joints from highly corrosive environments.

Anti-seize is also used to more efficiently tighten hardware, without seizing the parts.  The anti-seize is similar to grease in its content, however the solid lubricant in anti-seize can withstand temperatures up to 1450 degrees and protects from seizure in high torque and stressful installations.
