• Nylok Thread Locking Adhesives

Nylok mechanical thread locking adhesives permanently and cost-effectively prevent threaded fastener failue. Nylok thread sealing adhesives prevent the sliding motion within a fastener that causes self-loosening. Nylock thread locking adhesives are unique liquid resins that harden (or cure) to a tough solid when exposed to metal ions in the absence of air, providing a permanent and tight lock for your fastening project needs.

At RC Fasteners & Components, we provide a wide range of Nylok threadlocker products. Each of our Nylok thread sealing products maintains its own unique properties and is designed for specific applications. Whether it’s the automotive, aerospace, military, agriculture, or another industry, we have the Nylok threadlocker product that’s right for your application.

Nylok Threadlocker Product Considerations

When selecting the correct Nylok thread locking adhesive for your application certain considerations must be applied to ensure the correct formula is used. Nylok threadlockers are available in low-strength formulations for easy removal, medium-strength grades that can be removed using common hand tools, and high-strength formulations that offer the highest holding abilities.
The strength and viscosity of the adhesive needed for an application are directly related to the size of the fastener used. Low-strength threadlockers are used on screws up to one-quarter-inch in diameter. Medium-strength materials are for fasteners up to three-fourths of an inch in diameter used in machine tools and presses, pumps, compressors, and as mounting bolts. High-strength threadlockers are best used on fasteners up to one inch in diameter found in permanent assembly applications such as heavy equipment and mounts.

Nylok Mechanical Thread Locking Product Options

At RC Fasteners & Components, we provide Nylok thread locking adhesives in three unique formulations. Each Nylok threadlocking formula is designed for use in specific applications.

Nylok Blue Threadlocker

Nylok Blue is a self-locking element comprised of nylon permanently bonded onto the threads of a fastener. When the Nylok Blue 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 positive resistance to vibration and loosening.

Nylok Blue Nylon Pellet

Nylok Blue Nylon Pellet are permanently embedded into the threads of the fastener and are applied through a drilled hole with a plug of oversized nylon that’s wedged into the hole. When the pellet & strip are engaged it creates a wedge between the fastener and mating part compressing the nylon and creating metal to metal contact opposite the element.

Nylok Blue Nylon Strip

Nylok Blue Nylon Strip is permanently embedded into the threads of the fastener. When mating threads are engaged the tough, resilient Blue nylon element is compressed and a counter-force is created to establish a much stronger contact and positive resistance to vibration and loosening.
