Loctite® Food Grade Anti-Seize, metal-free formulation prevents seizure, galling, and friction in stainless steel and other metal parts up to 750°F (400°C).

 

The "Unirac Installation Supplement 910 - Galling and Its Prevention" identifies the fact that "stainless steel bolts and nuts occasionally seize or freeze together - a process known as galling or cold welding.  Fortunately, galling does not occur every day, but when it does, it is effectively irreversible.  Serious delay and parts shortages can occur and tedious remedies are often required"

Unirac recommends a "Three Step Prevention" strategy to eliminate galling:

1.  Apply the recommended Anti-Seize according to the manufacturer's direction.  Anti-Seize lubricant used on a bolt helps to develop greater clamp load for the same torque compared to an unlubricated bolt.

2.  Keep nuts and bolts shaded prior to installation.  Direct sun exposure at the work site, particularly on hot days, can heat hardware dramatically.

3.  Decrease friction and heat by reducing the rate at which you turn the nuts and bolts.  Do not use a high speed setting on your driver.  As rotational speed decreases, the heat that contributes to galling likewise decreases.
