Nylok® Red Patch Torq-Patch®

Nylok® Red Patch Torq-Patch®

NYLOK® Red Patch TORQ-PATCH® is a self-locking element comprised of nylon permanently bonded onto the threads of a fastener. When the NYLOK® Red Patch TORQ-PATCH® is engaged, it creates a wedge between the fastener and mating part compressing the nylon and creating metal to metal contact opposite the patch. This metal to metal contact results in a positive resistance to vibration and loosening. Since nylon has great memory characteristics, this locking element can be reused several times.

Precote® 30

Precote® 30 varnish-like, solvent free coating systems based on micro-encapsulated acrylates for sealing and locking of threaded parts. The dried film is tack-free, non sticky and can be used in all kind of assembly procedures, particularly for series production. Its characteristics as a locking and sealing element become effective only when the capsules are ruptured by shear and pressure stress and the adhesive is allowed to cure.
