DISC-LOCK Announces RoHS Compliant Commercial Wheel Locking Nut
DISC-LOCK announced that its patented Safety Wheel Nut is now available in a new environmentally friendly anti corrosion coating that is RoHS compliant. The vibration and shockproof wheel nut is used for commercial trucks, trailers and buses and designed to eliminate wheel loss. The lock nut is made of cold forged steel, which some companies often coat, in toxic chrome derivatives such as Hexavalent and Trivalent chrome.
Vehicle manufacturers and operators are under increasing pressure to conform to a range of RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances), EPA, and OSHA directives that prohibit toxic metals on such parts. The new Disk Lock International locking wheel nut is now RoHS compliant. The coating used is from GEOMET®, which is water based and VOC compliant compromised of overlapping zinc and aluminum in an organic binder. The new environmentally safe coated Wheel lock nut can then withstand salt spray tests of 720 hours.
In addition to the protective coating the interlocking cams are simple to install, greatly improve safety and out performs standard two-piece wheel nuts in torque and vibration tests. DISC-LOCK wheel Nut is fitted by major fleet operators and approved by vehicle and axle manufacturers.
