Nylok Self-Locking Fastener Withstands Heat to 450°F (232°C)
Orange-colored NYTEMP® from Nylok Corporation -- the industry's most advanced high-temperature self-locking patch material - frees designers from the 250°F maximum of traditional materials and allows them to use self-locking fasteners with multiple cycle reuse capabilities in areas never before possible. By maintaining torque and clamp load stability in temperatures up to 450°F (232°C), the patented NYTEMP patch is ideal for assembly applications in aerospace, automotive, appliances, small engines and other areas where heat of this magnitude is encountered. It is made of a high temperature-resistant polymer element that is applied as an orange-colored patch to internally or externally threaded parts. The patch meets the torque and vibration requirements of MIL-STD-1312 #7 and is compatible with aerospace and defense fastener alloys such as A286, INCO®718 and CRES300 Series. It also meets and exceeds such major government and industry specifications as IFI-124, IFI-524, IFI-155 and IFI-555; military MIL-DTL-18240F and MIL-QPL-18240; NASA SP-R-0022A and Detroit Diesel TES-113. According to Nylok, the fasteners also are less costly than Vespel® because they do not require any drilling or milling, and are not affected by water, anti-freeze, gasoline, motor oil, diesel oil, various kerosene-based materials, hydraulic fluids or similar materials. Nylok - a member of the Marmon Group --is the pioneer of the blue nylon self-locking process and the worldwide leader in patented fastener coatings for thread locking, sealing and protection.
