Developed using aerospace industry experience, properly applied Tef Gel eliminates the blistering, corrosion, rust, galling, and seizing of hardware commonly experienced in corrosive environments and with dissimilar metals.
It can be used in all weather conditions. The amazing composition is derived from a specially formulated PTFE paste. Syringe tube design for easy application. Whether it swivels, slips or slides, Tef-Gel will protect and ensure the painless future removal of assembled hardware.

I need to attach stainless screws to an aluminum mast. Is this the product to use? I understand that a thin film on the threads will work. Also if attaching stainless padeyes do I just put a thin coat on both the mast and the back fo the padeye?
Yes, this product will work to prevent corrosion and seizing.

can you tell me the difference in the numbering of the Tef Gel?I see a type 1,2, 16???What are the different purposes/ properties?
I have no idea as to what the significance of any numbering. I purchased the product on a strong recommendation and have used it often.
Numbers probably refer to container size (same stuff).
The numbers are not types, but size indicators. 25 indicates 1/4 oz, 1 is 1 oz, 2T is 2oz, 12 is 12 oz and 16 is 16oz.
what is the shelf life?
Tef-Gel is far better than other bi-metal corrosion inhabiters I have used. I was able to unmount several stainless parts from my aluminum mast one year after I put on.
I have had a jar of Tef-Gel open for three years with no noticeable change in its consistency.
The Tef-Gel I purchased in 2009 is still good.
The shelf life is more than 3 years and a little goes a long way.
I bought the Tef-Gel over a year ago. I bought the small jar (not the tube). It is still in good shape. It stays on my boat year round. I haven't found any problems with it.
Hello,I used the Tef-Gel to coat every stainless screw attaching hardware to my aluminum mast and boom after a repainting. It really works wonders. I used a small brush to evenly coat the screw threads. I should have used it with the stainless pop rivits I used to reattach "A" style mast steps. The original SS rivits held up OK for over 25 years without Tef-Gel. The gel goes a long way. Cheers
I used the Tef-Gel on stainless steel bolts on my aluminum boat trailer to create of buffer between the dissimilar metals. It is very easy to work with and created a watertight seal.

I first used this when I was away on a service call and it was awesome got back to the shop and ordered right away great product
Best for SS bolts to aluminum mast etc
Whenever you have dissimilar metals like SS machine screws into an aluminum mast.Makes the screws or bolts go in easy so that they are easy to remove when necessary.

Any time I use fasteners into a metal I use this. Great for preventing the corrosion from stainless fasteners through Harken aluminum parts.
this is the only product to use in the marine enviroment

The real deal
TefGel is the real deal. Don't use any "pretenders". For preventing dissimilar metal corrosion, corrosion in general and anti-seizing, it's the best. I've use it on every electrical connection I've made in the last 10 years and haven't had a corrosion-related failure yet. Great stuff.
TEf gel for stuffing box
I used tef gel on the packing in the stuffing box- buttered some in with gland nut backed oout, then hand tihtened til some pushed out the shaft...then 1/4 more turn- stuffing box performs well year after year- no annual adjustment needed...
Nothing works better than this stuff
This stuff works. It looks expensive but it only takes a thin film to make it stop the dissimilar metal corrosion. It takes a little work to get it off your hands and has the consistency of very sticky grease. It seems to a better than grease substitute for items in a harsh environment.

WORKS AS PROMISED - EXCELLENT ANTI-SIEZE
Tef-Gel was originally recommended to mr by professional riggers. I have used it to isolate stainless fasteners from an aluminum mast, and have no visible galvanic corrosion after about seven years. The best indicator of its anti-sieze properties is an anchor shackle that I treated about six years ago. Yesterday I removed the shackle with only a pair pliers although it had been used often in the intervening years.
