Nylok Introduces Line of Powder Coatings for Fastener Heads



Nylok Corporation, a leading provider of value-added fastener thread coatings and adhesives, is expanding its scope of fastener protection products with a new line of fused-on powder coatings for fastener heads that meet GM 4383 M specifications.

Nylok powder coatings form a consistent and durable coating that prevents metal-to-metal contact and provides wear resistance. They also provide a smooth decorative finish and protects against rust. Nylok offers three different types of fastener head powder coatings: epoxy, nylon 11 and nylon 12. Epoxy powder is applied by electrostatic spray or fluidized bed and cured in convection ovens. Nylon 11 and 12 powders are applied by electrostatic spray and cured by a post heating induction process. The nylon 11 coating also prevents galvanic corrosion between dissimilar materials, while a thick coating of epoxy powder can be used on sharp metal parts to prevent cutting.

The powder coating line is the latest introduction from Nylok, which holds more patents for innovative fastener technology than any other company and has built a reputation throughout the world for "inNYvation" in developing new products that solve challenges.
