An Assembly Paste is an essential tool to assist during the manufacture
and assembly of all kinds of machinery and equipment. A good Assembly
Paste requires specific characteristics, and also must be quick and
easy to apply, and so is often packaged in the form of a spray can.
The main requirements of an assembly paste must include the capability
of an even spread of lubricant between surfaces, and be sufficiently
fine to allow working of the surfaces to very narrow tolerances. This
is especially important in the assembly of blue printed components.
Some assembly pastes are designed with specific requirements. They will
normally include easy break- away movement characteristics, good
corrosion protection against water and chemicals, good adhesive
properties to the particular surface, and be able to diminish
the effects of fretting as components begin to loosen up.
Lubricants manufacture a number of high specification assembly pastes,
and examples are
Lubricants No657 TAS-AL which is a soft assembly paste that is very
adhesive and has a temperature range from -40°C to 1100°C. Above 200°C
the paste effectively becomes a dry lubricant. The paste is a combination
of solid lubricants in a synthetic carrier oil which evaporates
without leaving any residues at high temperatures. It is commonly
used as a separating and lubricating agent in forging and hot
moulding operations, as well as for screw connections, low speed
bearings, cam discs, large ink plates, spindles and return rollers.
Lubricants No657 MA 2 which is a synthetic assembly paste for extreme
conditions, and is resistant to cold and hot water, water vapour, aqueous
alkaline and acid media, and has been extensively proved under sea and
salt water conditions. Temperature range is -35°C to +170°C and it is
commonly used in roller and friction bearings in textile washing and
dyeing machines, electric motors and pumps in general, the paper
industry and the food and fish packing processes.
Turmsilon MV which is a water and steam resistant whitish transparent
silicone assembly paste, for sealing elements like glass taps, in the
pharmaceutical and food processing industry. The temperature range
is -40°C to +160°C. It's high dielectric strength prevents voltage
arcing in insulators and switches. It remains soft at low temperatures
and prevents freezing of door seals in aerial cable cars and rail
transport vehicles. It also prevents wear in plastic parts of household
appliances and audio equipment.
Turmolyb PSP Mounting lubricant, which is an assembly paste based on
solid lubricants with synergistic effects and a low friction coefficient.
The temperature range is -40°C to + 450°C. It is packaged as a spray
and is used for the lubrication of slide bearings, threaded spindles,
tracks, tensioning devices, toothed wheel works, gears, bolts and screws.
Assembly pastes are only part of the production program, and Lubricants
have many other Greases, Oils and Sprays in their range, and will provide
you with the correct assembly paste or lubricant for your own
application or process.
