Tef-Gel™ Reactivity Investigation
SUBJECT: ANTISEIZE LUBRICANT REACTIVITY INVESTIGATION
Per your request we have evaluated the two anti seize products you sent me, Chesterton 785 parting lubricant and Ultra Tef-Gel (from Ultra Safety Systems, Inc), for reactivity/incompatibility.
The test method used was simple. Basically, we put a small “spatula full” of the material in a beaker and dripped on top of it a few drops of various compounds and noted the behaviour. The results are recorded on the attached data sheets. In summary, both products were for the most part unreactive. However, there are a few areas of concern. The Ultra Tef Gel gave a slight exotherm with mixed acid. No decomposition was observed, My belief is that this was caused by moisture in the product. The Chesterton 735 product was noted to have some solubility in MCB (monochlorbenzene) and certain acids, most notably nitric and mixed acids.
I hope this information is useful to you.
