FASTORQ A/G - Most Effective Anti-Gall Lubricant & Sealant
Seals high pressure threaded connections at pressures in excess of 20,000 PSI. In fact, on some connections, metal-to-metal seals can be obtained without galling so that pressures of 50,000 PSI are contained leak free! Eliminates Teflon tape.
Lubricates all mating surfaces so well that a "K" factor of .07 is common on bolted joints where FASTORQ A/G is applied.
Prevents galling, even on stainless steel when threads are stressed to more than 80% of yield strength.
FASTORQ A/G is environmentally safe!
FASTORQ A/G is "quaranteed" to prevent galling on stainless threaded connections. It is equally effective on other gall-susceptible materials, as well as ferrous metals. In demonstrations, a variety of threads have been pressed into distorted shapes, flattened by hammering or otherwise ruined. In every case, FASTORQ A/G reformed the threads to their original shape creating smooth, even mating surfaces. In one instance, a 316 stainless threaded rod was used to chase new threads in an aluminium block.
FASTORQ A/G also reduces torque requirements so that proper makeup can be achieved more quickly and with less effort.
FASTORQ A/G is an excellent lubricant and sealant. In many cases, connections can be tightened until a metal to metal seal is achieved, but without galling. Under more normal conditions, FASTORQ A/G will seal off a leak path and prevent the passage of fugitive emissions at pressures up to 20,000 PSI. Teflon tape is no longer needed!
FASTORQ A/G contains no metals or other ingredients, which may be hygienically or environmentally harmful. This material has passed both the Shrimp Test (drilling fluids toxicity test) and the Static Sheen Test in accordance with EPA standards.
FASTORQ A/G is NOT recommended for applications where temperatures exceed 550ºF, and should never be disposed of by burning. Refer to FASTORQ 72 or FASTORQ 70+ for high-temperature applications.
