Anti Seize

Should be a lifetime supply me. They needed to get rid of this at work the other day, as we switched to food grade. Someone looked at the can, saw something bad, looked at the SDS and saw it was corrosive. They thought the anti seize was eating through the can, so now it REALLY had to go. “Corrosion “ is just some liquid like oil or something that got on the can and collected dust. Yay! Now I don’t have to buy a new 1 oz tube for $3. Lucky me!

Say hello to my little friend!

BTW... “corrosive” apparently refers to “corrosive to skin.” Anti seize is by nature not corrosive to metal... that would defeat the purpose, wouldn’t it?

Re: Anti Seize

Is that a GALLON can?

My "honey-do list" is so long it has chapters.

Re: Anti Seize

Wow. That should last until your grandkids are granddads! Even considering how that stuff gets on everything when you use it.

Re: Anti Seize

The problem is that anti-seize compound will begin to dry up once the can has been opened. The small bottles last a year or two after they are opened. I have no idea how long that big can might be good for.

We'll find out!
I'll be I can stir it a time or two and get the crust off the top. It's already a bit separated. There's some sort of liquid collecting in the low spot within the product. That gallon can is at least 95% full.


Overkill.
I love overkill.

Re: Anti Seize

I wonder if moving it to smaller containers would help make it last longer. It seems like that way only a small bit would have exposure to air at any one time.

I've been dipping out of a pint can of Never Seize for over 40 years. The only thing that happens is that some of the oil separates and sits on top of the paste. Stir it with a screwdriver and use what is on the screwdriver, then put the cover back on the can for a few more months, or years, as the case may be.

The can is still 1/3 full, and I'm not likely to be the one that empties it. Maybe my grandson, if it doesn't get thrown out when my son and SIL clean out my garage.

I've been doing the same with a 20+-year-old bottle as well. Not sure what kind dries up after a year or two.

Re: Anti Seize

Yup, I've got a small tub of silver colored antiseize, not opened a lot, but never looks or feels like it's at all dried out when stirring it prior to application. And just recently used a can of KoprKote my dad bought maybe in the 70's, also didn't seem dried out at all, just stirred it a bit cuz it separated a little, and it seems good to go.

I even have (well, at least had, as I can't find it right now) a "stick" of anti-seize, like a crayon, sold as spark plug antiseize, which seemed to work fine and also didn't seem noticeably dried out when I last used it about 4 years ago (when it was 25 years old).

Re: Anti Seize

When it gets thick, I thin out Antiseize by mixing in some WD40. You arent going to like the food-grade stuff. Doesnt work half as good. I have to use it at work too.

Re: Anti Seize

Unfortunately for me, the brush in my 20 yr old container doesn't reach all the way to the bottom. Hello popsicle stick.
