    This stuff is great!

    0 5/5 Picky Parker (New Jersey, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Permatex 80078 Anti-Seize Lubricant with Brush Top Bottle, 8 oz. (Automotive) I use this almost every time I work on my car. If you have ever seen a 5 lug car hub using only 4 lugs then you know they never heard of this product. It is great on any part that you think might rust or seize together. This stuff is a life-saver on O2 sensors (thread only) and exhaust headers. Works great on spark plugs too! I live in the Northeast USA so rust is always a threat and this product is great insurance against seized bolts and it really adheres to surfaces for long lasting protection. It has a built in brush attached to the cap so no need to get your fingers dirty (well not too dirty). I really like this larger size as the smaller tubes are made out of metal and always break before you use it all.This product works great and is cheap, it separates a little if you store it in a hot garage but doesn't separate once stirred up an applied to a part. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 6, 2011

    Flawless...

    I own a nearly 20 year old Ford Bronco and one thing that I have learned the hard way is, just about every other nut/bolt that I have tried to remove is seized up. I have taken apart/repaired/put back together many parts on my truck as I am doing a partial restore and prior to putting anything back together I use this stuff religiously.Actually, last year I put some anti seize lube on a bolt that was previously seized for my headlight housing that required a thorough soaking of pb and a ratchet & vise grip combo to remove and just removed it again yesterday and it came off with so much ease I was scared that it was just doing a free spin again (which it wasn't).I have only been using this product for a year now and I only started because it got such rave reviews and I can safely say that I will never go without having this extremely valuable product in my garage. It almost makes me want to take out every single bolt/screw, give it a coating, and replace it... 5/5 Michael Bremer (MCHENRY, IL, US) - See all my reviews This review is from: Permatex 80078 Anti-Seize Lubricant with Brush Top Bottle, 8 oz.

    Anti-Seize Lubricant For Soldering Iron--A Genuine Bargain

    For years my work in stained glass has required the use of some type of anti-seize chemical in the soldering irons that I use--to keep the iron's tip from seizing in the body of the iron. I learned the hard way when my first soldering iron's tip "froze" in the iron's heater body. Eventually I had to throw away the expensive iron.When I discovered that there are such things as anti-seize lubricants for soldering irons, my worries seemed to be over. Well, not quite! Although the lubricants that I was able to find were effective, they were a little difficult to find and came in such small tubes. They were also relatively expensive. Of course, "expensive" does not mean much when one is faced with having to toss a $150.00 soldering iron.After researching anti-seize lubricants and finding them offered on Amazon, I decided to try Permatex's product. It was supposed to work for automobile brakes and their high temperatures, so why not for my soldering irons which... 5/5 DR_CJK - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
