Performance Specification Anti-Seize Thread Compound, High Temperature
This foundation specification (AMS3050) and its associated category specifications (AMS3050/1 through AMS3050/9) cover anti-seize compounds for use on threads of nuts, studs, bolts, and other mating surfaces, including those of superheated steam installations, at temperatures up to 1050 °F (566 °C). Compounds containing PTFE are limited to 600 °F/315 °C maximum. Materials for nuts, studs, bolts and other mating surfaces include, but are not limited to Steel, Nickel alloys, Stainless Steel, Silver coated materials.
Rationale:This document has been revised to distinguish this foundation specification (AMS3050) and the associated category specifications (AMS3050/1 through AMS3050/9) and to classify different anti-seize greases conforming to this specification by the type of anti-seize additive. The category specifications have been added to the Applicable Documents section.
The specification is a direct copy from MIL-PRF-907F 17 November 2004, except that it is intended to be used (by slash sheet designation) to exclude anti-seize materials not required on commercial aircraft, aircraft engines, engine pylons and aircraft components.
All material referring to Mil Supply and usage; Contacts and addresses have been removed as not required for SAE purposes. No importance should be given to this type of material for future balloting of this specification.
