Prevailing Torque High Temp Locking Patch
Nytemp® self-locking patch is comprised of high temperature polymer permanently bonded onto the threads of a fastener. When the Nytemp® patch is engaged, it creates a wedge between the fastener and mating part, compressing the polymer and creating metal to metal contact opposite the patch. This metal to metal contact results in a positive resistance to vibration and loosening. Since this polymer has great memory characteristics, the locking element can be reused several times.
