Chemical Anchors, Lubricants, Adhesives, Inhibitors
Anzor Fasteners stocks a range of chemical products to complement our range of Stainless Steel Fasteners and can be separated into three broad categories; Lubricants and Corrosion Inhibitors, Chemical Anchors and Adhesives & Sealants. These include:
Lanotec, an excellent solution to lubricating threads and corrosion protection. Lubrication is extremely important with Stainless threads to avoid galling and cold welding. Pure Lanolin is a unique natural substance produced by sheep to form a coating on wool fibres to protect them against the elements. This coating is extremely effective when applied to Stainless Steel to reduce corrosion and ‘tea-staining’. The range includes;
Loctite 771 – Nickel Lubricant
Loctite 771 Nickel Anti-Seize is copper free and recommended to lubricate Stainless Steel. For preventing seizing and galling in harsh, chemical environments. It is RoHS compliant.
Tef-Gel – preventing Galvanic Corrosion
Tef-Gel eliminates seizing galling and is also extremely effective in creating an isolating barrier between dissimilar metals to prevent galvanic corrosion. Such as between Stainless Steel Screws and Alumiium or carbon Fibre.. Tef-Gel applied to both mating surfaces of nuts and bolts or threaded holes and bolts leaves a layer of 40% solid PTFE within the thread interface, which works as friction barrier. Tef-Gel, which contains 0% volatile solvents, will not evaporate, cold flow, or dry out, giving protection many years later when hardware must be dissembled.
Adhesives and Sealants are available and Loctite offer a range of adhesives, sealants and thread locker compounds like Loctite 243 and 277 thread locker compounds which offer high performance on various metals even without use of an activator, temperature resistant to 180ºC.
Loctite 401 and 406 Instant Adhesive - universal, low viscosity, very fast fixture speed at 3 – 10 seconds, particularly suited for bonding a wide variety of materials, is colourless and suitable service temperature range is -40 °C to +120 °C.
Loctite 567 Thread Sealant withstands temperatures to 400 °F with excellent solvent resistance. Locks and seals tapered pipe threads and fittings, including high pressure applications. Disassembles with hand tools and is RoHS compliant.
Fischer Chemical Anchors are styrene-free polyester resins for fixings in masonry building materials.
