Pastes are not greases but are a compound that are often mistaken for grease. They are generally composed of non-melting thickener, a base oil and a content of solid lubricants or soft metallic materials.
They offer separation of surfaces which allows them to prevent seizing of components such as nuts, bolts and other threaded fasteners.
Various solid lubricants are added depending on the requirement of the application, these include copper, aluminium, graphite, nickel, ceramics and lead.
IKV Lubricants offer a full range of these products including standard and premium copper anti-seize pastes as well as more specialist variations for specific applications and industries.
They are not generally suitable for conventional lubrication applications such as bearing lubrication, as better alternatives exist within our product portfolio.
