Fastener security refers to measures taken to inhibit the unintentional loosening or removal of fasteners by external influences. As well as mechanical security features there are a number of chemical solutions available, optionally involving the use of micro-encapsulated adhesives.
An overview of different chemical security measures is given below.
When it comes to securing and sealing fastener connections, spedcaps offer a number of decisive advantages. Above all, under dynamic loads – transverse to the insertion direction – these pre-coated threads meet the most exacting requirements.
Fasteners coated with spedlack offer a simple, secure, time-saving solution which improves overall product quality enormously.
Particular advantages are:
Spedlack coating is also ideal for use with miniature fasteners.
The highly elastic spedstop coating can be used in a wide range of applications. It provides a high degree of security even without screw tightening, making it an ideal coating for setting and adjustment screws.
Patch application is particularly suitable for situations where an electrically conducting connection is required. 360º all-round coating enables the sealing effect of the material to come into play.
