What is Anti-Seize
Anti-seize compounds are also used to protect 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.
Prior to applying any load or stress to the stainless steel fitting we recommend you apply Anti-seize. Apply liberally to the full circumference of the base of the fitting. Screw on the nut or female section of the fitting and tighten all the way up the shaft, then unthread the nut or female fitting off again. There is no need to apply over the entire thread. This will ensure that the anti-seize has been applied evenly to the entire thread. Use fitting as required.
