How to Stop ☠ Galvanic Corrosion ☠ 0👉 Prevention of galvanic corrosion between dissimilar metals; 👉 Eliminates seizing and galling of dissimilar metals; 👉 Lubrication that will not break down, even in salt water or detergents.
The original Ultra Tef-Gel that is available at East Marine Asia is design to stop corrosion between dissimilar metals, galling of stainless steel or aluminium fasteners, and act as an anti-seize agent for ease of maintenance. It contains 40% PTFE powder and 0% volatile solvents, no silicones or petroleum solvents to evaporate, which would leave voids for electrolytes to be drawn into create a galvanic cell. When both surfaces are coated and mated with Tef-Gel, there are no voids for electrolytes (or saltwater) to be drawn in by capillary action over extended period of time.
Tel-Gel prevent corrosion between dissimilar metals, for example stainless screws, bolts or rivets into aluminium (paint blistering, frozen fasteners, outboard motors). Prevent galling on stainless and titanium fasteners, and discoloration and rot in wood (water cannot get past it). Moving parts to lubricate hatch and porthole hinges and joint, sliders, swivels, locking pins, pulleys, rigging screws, low speed bearing.
Tef-Gel also replace silicone to lubricate pump gaskets, heat exchanger parts and PVC fittings. It stops weeping around endplates, faceplates, heat exchangers and plumbing, and it allow better sealing and adjustment in PVC. Tef-Gel able to replace grease for punches presses, drill presses (longer life, smoother operation).
Other useful things to be use for Tef-Gel also include propeller shafts to allow easy removal of propellers (especially splined shafts). Packing in glands to make stuffing box drip free. Use on all your battery ends in flashlights etc to stop tin oxide formation, making your batteries last much longer.
