Abstract : In an effort to satisfy aerospace demands for high temperature anti-sieze compounds, a project was conducted to evaluate three promising materials. These materials, FEL-PRO C5A, Alpha Molykote 285X, and Convair 2736 were applied to bolt and nut installations. Breakaway torques were measured after heat soaks of 1250, 1550, 1750, and 2000 F. Results of the tests showed that all three materials exhibited good and anti-seize properties in this application. Although no one material was superior at all temperatures tested, the Convair 2736 compound exhibited the best 'over-all' performance over the temperature range. (Author)
