Silverhook Ceramic Synthetic grease is a very high purity synthetic (mineral oil free) anti-seize compound and assembly paste. Manufactured from micro-ceramic particles together with micronised mica, compounded in a non-melt synthetic grease base. Under pressure, the solid particles form a uniform matrix, filling surface irregularities and preventing both leaks and the intrusion of contaminants. It does not contain any metals – electrolytic corrosion is prevented as the differing metals are insulated from each other. It also does not contain any sulphur or chlorine.
Use on anti-lock braking systems, ASR traction control, all studs, nuts, bolts and other threaded connections, including turbine casing studs, burner nozzles, all boiler inspection points and furnace bolts. Assembly is made easier and threaded couplings can be secured uniformly with optimum torque. After long periods of service in quite arduous conditions of heat, pressure and vibration, components can be readily broken out without damage or distortion.
As with all greases used the first time, check compatibility with the grease applied previously and if necessary purge bearings prior to application. Likewise, as a general rule, take care not to over-lubricate and only apply the quantity of grease recommended by the bearing manufacturer.
Operating temperature -20 to +1500 degrees Celsius; at the higher temperatures, the synthetic grease burns off, leaving the ceramic particles to act as the anti-seize.
