Apiezon AP101 is a specialist, anti-seize vacuum grease, containing PTFE, which confers superior anti-seize properties providing glass and metal surfaces with long-lasting lubrication and protection from fusing and corrosion. It is silicon-free and is an excellent general purpose, hydrocarbon grease suitable for a variety of scientific applications. Typically, it is used to maintain the smooth operation of stopcocks and taps and is used in most laboratories.
The Grease is not limited to laboratory and glassware use and is equally effective on metal equipment which may be subject to seizure or corrosion. Just a small amount of AP101 on fastenings will ensure they are protected. It reduces sample contamination and consequently the risk of interference in analytical techniques such as infra-red and mass spectrometry. Additionally, AP101 can be used with confidence in paint spraying and metal deposition processes.
