What is the difference between copper and nickel anti-seize?
Nickel Grade Anti-Seize is a premium anti-seize lubricant recommended for protecting metal fittings from rust, corrosion, galling and seizure at temperatures up to 2600° F. Copper Grade Anti-Seize is copper in color and is not recommended for applications where copper is prohibited.
What color is nickel anti-seize?
|Solid Lubricant Agent:||Nickel/Graphite|
|Temperature Range:||-20°F to 2400°F (-29°C to 1315°C)|
Is there a high temp anti-seize?
Protects metal parts from seizing and galling at temperatures up to 2400°F (1316°C). It is recommended where copper contamination must be avoided, under conditions of extreme pressure and temperature, and with stainless steel, titanium and nickel alloys.
Should you use anti-seize compound on spark plugs?
NGK spark plugs are installed at the factory dry, without lubrication or anti-seize. Anti-seize can act as a lubricant, altering torque values up to 20 percent, increasing the risk of spark plug thread breakage and/or metal shell stretch. Do not use anti-seize or lubricant on NGK spark plugs.
Where should you not use anti-seize?
Do not use anti-seize as a lubricant such as on caliper slide pins or on threads for a bushing press or any mechanical assembly that requires a lubricant. Do not use anti-seize on exposed threads because the compound can attract contaminants that may contribute to thread damage when the fastener is removed.
Can I use nickel anti-seize on aluminum?
Eases disassembly by preventing seizure and inhibiting rust and corrosion up to 1425°C (2600°F). Saves threads and parts for reuse by preventing galling damage and breakage during opening. Use on steel and stainless steel, iron, aluminum, copper, brass, titanium, etc.
Where is nickel anti-seize used?
Permatex® Nickel Anti-Seize was designed specifically for use on stainless steel or similar alloys. It protects threaded fasteners and fittings from heat, freezing, seizure or galling at temperatures from -65°F to 2400°F. It may be used on pumps, sensors, valves, nuts and bolts where extreme conditions of heat exist.
Is nickel anti-seize good for aluminum?
Can you put anti-seize on exhaust bolts?
If you are reusing exhaust manifold bolts (which we don’t recommend), apply a metal fortified anti-seize to your manifold bolts. If you’ve just removed the broken bolts and ready to complete the repair, chase the threads clean and use fresh OEM bolts for best results.
Should you oil spark plug threads?
NGK does not recommend the application of lubricant such as copper grease to spark plug threads as the result is a reduction of frictional forces at the thread faces. It’s very important not to over or under tighten spark plugs during installation. Over tightening can lead to distortion of the spark plug and breakage.
Will anti seize cause bolts to loosen?
Using anti-seize without reducing the required torque value can strip the threads or stretch the bolt in extreme situations.
Can I use grease instead of anti seize?
You can use grease quite effectively as an anti-seize compound. It’s not as good in high temperature applications, but there aren’t any of those on a bike. However, NEVER use anti-seize compound as a lubricant.
