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.
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.
