Starboard Foils recommends that riders use Tef-Gel :
Tef-Gel is a water-resistant PTFE based paste that prevents metal oxidation and corrosion due to galvanneous flows between different metals.
A small amount of Tef-Gel is sufficient to prevent corrosion between different metals and materials (aluminium, stainless steel, carbon…)
Tef-Gel applied to both bolt and threaded hole surfaces leaves a solid film of PTFE, which prevents corrosion welding.
Tef-Gel can also be used as a seawater resistant lubricant and sealant to prevent water penetration.
As Tef-Gel contains no volatile solvents, it does not evaporate, freeze or dry out and provides long-lasting protection for components, allowing easy disassembly.
