An anti-seize compound and a lubricant perform entirely different functions although many anti-seize products have lubricating properties, especially at higher temperatures. In environmentally adverse conditions such as high humidity and salinity, extreme pressure, acidic atmospheres or excessive temperatures, metals can fuse or weld together. The chief culprit is corrosion, particularly in marine surroundings. Molyslip anti-seize products are designed to provide an insulating layer between metals so that dismantling and routine maintenance are free from breakage of fused parts. This problem is especially onerous on threads and shackles. A single application of Copaslip (often misspelled as copperslip or coppaslip) or Alumslip will stop metal fusion for many years.
Copaslip® (often misspelled as copperslip or coppaslip) - the original anti-seize compound. It is a very high temperature (up to 1100°C) anti-seize assembly compound, bentone based non-melt grease with copper, polybutene, and anti-corrosion additives.
Molyslip AS40/AS60 Anti-Scuff Paste
Anti-scuff, bedding-in paste, gelled lubricating oil with a high proportion of MoS2. AS60 contains 60% of MoS2; AS40 contains 40% of MoS2 with graphite, rust and corrosion inhibitors.
Air drying film. Pure Molybdenum Disulphide in an air drying bonding resinate for use where oils/greases cannot be used (ie dust contamination). Ideal for pre-assembly treatment of parts to minimise dangers of seizure, galling or scuffing. Available in aerosols or bulk liquid for use in suitable spray-guns.
Alumslip anti-seize assembly compound is specially formulated to protect against seizure even under extreme conditions of pressure and temperature. Also a highly effective thread lubricant and protective. Designed for same applications as Copaslip® (often misspelled as copperslip or coppaslip) but where there is a prejudice against the presence of copper. Temperature range up to 1100°C.
Nickleslip is a nickel based extra high and low temperature anti-seize assembly compound. Containing pure nickel, aluminium and graphite in a non-melt base with corrosion and oxidation inhibitors.
