Neolube is used to coat the threads on fittings to assure a smooth operation. Neolube is graphite dissolved in Isopropanol solvent. Within minutes of application the Isopropanol evaporates off leaving only graphite to lubricate the threads. No oils or other high boiling contaminants are present to contaminate vacuum of high purity systems.
Neolube No. 1 is a dry film, conductive lubricant, used in many applications as an anti-seize compound, thread lubricant and for lubricating moving parts and rubbing surfaces.
The composition of this material is 99% pure furnace graphite particles in Isopropanol. The material has excellent radiation resistance and high chemical purity. The thin, non corrosive film of Neolube 1 prevents seizing, frettign, galling and resists abrasion. It is easy to apply by spray, brush or dip and has excellent adhesion after a fast air dry. It does not migrate and it is non freezable. Neolube No 1 allows for easy assembly and non destructive disassembly. It has the properties which enable it to be used for lubrication in internal and external applications.
