The Tef-Gel® Story as told by the inventor, Robert P. Mergenthaler
During my years in the Aerospace industry, I used many Hi-tech products not available to the public. Twelve years later I am still applying my Aerospace knowledge to my career in the Marine industry.
The most common problems I see in the Marine industry are: BLISTERING, CORROSION, RUST, GALLING and SEIZING of metals. To eliminate this, I discovered a PTFE compound that when properly applied, eliminates blistering, corrosion, rust, galling and seizing of hardware in marine environments. I called this compound TEF-GEL®. Its space age design doesn't break down in salt water or detergents. TEF-GEL® is a thick white paste made of PTFE, a compound which is impervious to salt water. Water never gets past it.
TEF-GEL® has never failed me! I've sold this commercial grade product to the most demanding professionals at major Equipment Manufacturers, Rigging Companies and Shipbuilders with complete satisfaction. TEF-GEL® has been used thousands of times over the years to stop corrosion from the largest ocean vessels, sailboats & powerboats to the smallest outboards.
So there you have it. Use Tef-Gel when fastening stainless steel screws to aluminum
