Abstract:

Two antiseize compounds Detroit Arsenal-Franklin Institute were received at Aberdeen Proving Ground for testing to determine if they were capable of assisting in the ease of disassembly of mating steel parts, of preventing seizure and corrosion, and of supplying a measure of lubrication. The base stock of both the F.I.L. 15-13-2 and F.I.L. 15-13-2A antiseize compounds contains teflon and zinc chromate. The diluent for both is methyl isobutyl ketone. CONCLUSIONS Both experimental antiseize compounds have a tendency to cause close-fitting mating parts to bind such as torsion bar serrated end in road wheel arm assembly. Both antiseize compounds have a tendency to flake off mating surfaces that are under load e.g., track pins with a resultant formation of corrosion. Present preservatives and lubricants used are more effective chemical agents in preventing corrosion than the antiseize compounds tested. Mating surface treated with the test antizeize compounds are generally more difficult to separate than mating surfaces assembled dry.
