Peal your gages to protect them from Rust and Damage
Seal Peal your gages to protect them from Rust and Damage.
Strippable Seal Peal Coating
is a convenient way to protect your screw thread gages. This is
the method that most screw thread gage makers use to protect new
screw thread gages while in storage and in transit to distributors
or end customers. Strippable seal peal coating is also used by most
calibration laboratories to provide the same protection for screw
thread gages which they have calibrated. We at Gage Crib Worldwide
Inc use strippable seal peal coating for our surplus
screw thread gages.
Strippable Seal Peal Coating is a low temperature, oil impregnated,
thermo-polymer. The low temperature allows strippable seal peal
coating to be melted in your shop at a reasonable safe temperature
in a Melting Tank. The
Hot Pot melts the strippable seal peal coating and once melted the
screw thread gage which is desired to be coated is dipped into the
melted strippable seal peal coating and removed. After a minute
of cooling the strippable seal peal coated screw thread gage is
ready for storage.
The oil impregnation is designed to keep oil in contact with the
raw steel of the screw thread gage while the screw thread gage is
in storage. Being integral to the thermo-polymer the oil does not
drip off or evaporate thus effecting a longer lasting film of protection
for the screw thread gage against rust.
The thermo-polymer strippable seal peal coating is thick enough
to protect the screw thread gage against most incidental bumps.
Whack it real hard against a sharp corner and the screw thread gage
can still be damaged, but in normal storage, rubbing against other
gages in a drawer, there is no worry for dings or wear of the screw
Strippable seal peal coating is an effective tamper indicator. The
gage can be considered unused as long as the strippable seal peal
coating is intact. It will be obvious if the strippable seal peal
coating has been removed and reinstalled.
Strippable seal peal coating is easily peeled off when the gage
is ready to be put into service. The gage will have been preserved
in its calibrated condition, oiled and ready for use.
Strippable seal peal coating is also useful for other tools like
end mills and drills. Applied to cutting tools, strippable seal
peal coating protects the cutting edge while the cutting tool is
in storage against rust, dulling caused by abrasions against other
tools, and accidental damage.
