Original Press Release:
Most Complete, Effective Thread Masking Protection
Because it is applied to threaded fasteners with substantially 100 percent TEFLON® powder, the patented NYCOTE® coating from Nylok Corporation provides guaranteed protection against thread contamination from electrodeposited paints, primers and adhesion of weld spatter. It also offers the industry's most complete and effective thread masking and protection. NYCOTE is a revolutionary masking process in which a non-conductive WHITE® TEFLON® PFA powder coating is applied to fasteners and coats only external and internal threads. In addition to eliminating expensive masking, plugging or capping of threads, NYCOTE also eliminates the need for "slave" bolts and re-tapping, which can compromise quality and safety. It also adds lubricity to fasteners and reduces torque vs. tension scatter, according to Nylok, which holds more patents for innovative fastener technology than any other company and has built a reputation throughout the world for "iNYvation" in developing new products that solve challenges. NYCOTE is widely used in such industries as agricultural, automotive, appliance, electronics, HVAC, machinery, marine, outdoor power equipment, recreation equipment and telecommunications manufacturing Nylok Corporation is a member of the Marmon group of companies and the world leader in supplying value-added fastener products.
