TIKAL TEF-GEL

Prevent galvanic corrosion

"Galvanic corrosion" or "contact corrosion" describes a chemical process that occurs when two dissimilar metals are bonded and have contact with an electrolyte such as water or moisture. Ions flow from the less noble material, which acts as the anode, toward the more noble material, which acts as the cathode. As a result, the lower-grade metal dissolves over time and corrosion occurs.

 

With our TIKAL TEF-GEL (Marinetech | Tikal Tef-Gel | Competence in Stainless Steel) you create a separating layer that stops the chemical reaction. The waterproof paste is based on polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), which is known to be highly unreactive. This resistance also makes TIKAL TEF-GEL suitable as a seawater-resistant lubricant and can be used as a sealant to prevent water penetration.

 

 

 

 

Examples of application areas:

  • Boat industry
  • automotive industry
  • Aerospace industry
  • offshore
  • Outdoor constructions of any kind

 

TIKAL TEF-GEL is not harmful to health and has no danger labels.
