Figure 3-38.  Removing Sealing Compound from a Setscrew
TM 9-254 3-13. Using Expendables - Continued (11)  To lubricate, apply a thin, even film of silicone grease to the top of the caskets. Figure 3-37.  Applying Grease to Beaded Seal e. Sealing  Compound.    Sealing  compounds  are  used  as  a  bonding  agent  to  bond  metal  to  metal  or  glass  to metal in optical or fire control instruments.  It can be used to install gaskets, windows, lenses, and setscrews where a firm air  tight  seal  is  necessary.    Sealing  compounds  are  divided  into  two  categories,  curing  and  non-curing.    A  curing  type sealing  compound  is  made  up  of  two  individual  agents,  a  base  and  an  accelerator  that  are  mixed  together  just  before using.    A  non-curing  sealing  compound  contains  one  base  agent,  and  does  not  require  mixing  prior  to  its  use.    The removal and application of a curing type sealing compound is described as follows: NOTE In steps (1) through (3), refer to figure 3-38. (1) Remove old sealing compound from the top of the setscrew, with a tool such as a scriber or jewelers’ screwdriver.  Loosen and dig out the old compound until the head of the setscrew can be seen. NOTE If  the  setscrew  begins  to  bind  or  get  tight  during  removal,  do  not  force  it.    Turn  the  setscrew clockwise and then counterclockwise, trying to loosen the setscrew a few threads at a time until it can be completely removed.  It may be necessary to apply heat to the area around the setscrew to loosen the sealing compound. 3-36
