Antimony Black Antigalling/Lubricant

Antimony Black Antigalling/Lubricant

Can anyone direct me to information about "antimony black" as an anti-galling and/or lubrication coating for stainless steel?  How is it applied?  Is it used as a mixture with other compounds?

RE: Antimony Black Antigalling/Lubricant

I don't know if this can be used as anti-seiz material, but I would suggest to you to be carefull !!!!!.

if melting point of antimony is close to the working temperature of your working peice, then it might cause a catastrofic failure due to a Phinomenone called Lequid Metal Embretelment  (LME), you can use a Nickle based anti-siez compound instead. Please read about (LME) before deciding which compound to use as an anti-siez.
if Lead,Cadmium,Zink,Merqury is in the compound then try to refraine from using it.
Also double insure that Antimony would not cause (LME) to SS before taking any further step.
