Nylon Lock Nuts with a Waxed Interior to Prevent Thread Galling
Nylon Insert Lock Nuts in this selection feature a waxed interior, which helps to prevent thread galling or fastener seizing that is common in Stainless Steel Fasteners. The threaded interior of these lock nuts are treated with wax to virtually act as an anti-seize without having to actually apply anti-seize to each fastener assembly. Because of this ease of use and time saving property, waxed Nylon Lock Nuts are commonly used on assembly lines in factories, and by anyone looking to save time and still protect their fasteners against thread galling.
A nylon insert lock nut is hex shaped, internally threaded with a nylon insert. The nylon material prevents loosening from vibration and cross threads to stop the nut from backing off of the fastener. The insert deforms elastically over the threads of the screw, but threads are not cut into the nylon. The nylon insert locks the nut in two ways. First, it forces the bottom face of the screw threads against the top face of the nut threads, increasing the friction between the two. Second, the nylon applies a compressive force against the screw itself. They come in a variety of materials.

Bob: This is a standard nylon lock nut, with the nylon insert. And this nut is what they call "pre-waxed". It's waxed to prevent any galling.
Galling gets into where your nut seizes onto the bolt and you can't go any further. The only thing that starts to happen is either you snap the bolt or snap the nut. So, we're going to demonstrate that we'll have no galling with this particular waxed insert lock nut.
This is a great product for manufacturing production. You don't have to put any anti-seize on to the nuts or screws. So this will save yourself a lot of time.
I have here a waxed nylon lock nut and waxed nylon lock nuts are used in manufacturing where you don't use any type of lubricant or anti-seize. This removes the requirement to dip a bolt inside some type of lubricant, so you don't have to waste time. They have what they call pre-waxed nylon lock nuts.
I'm just gonna screw this on right now with this ratchet to show you that it will not gall up as a normal nylon lock nut. If you put no anti-seize on it. This goes on like cake. It's so smooth; that waxing is amazing. So those who are manufacturing and want to get around the issue of galling or having your staff wasting time... That went all the way down. No galling at all. It's the perfect thing for manufacturing.
