Waxed Nylon Lock Nuts

Thread galling, or fastener seizing (locking nuts and broken bolts) is a common problem with when working with stainless steel and other soft metals. We discuss thread galling in-depth in previous posts as well as on our Fasteners 101 Page. We are excited to offer a new solution to this common problem: Waxed Nylon Lock Nuts.

Waxed Nylon Insert Lock Nuts are treated with wax to act as an on-board anti-seize which saves time and money because an anti-seize solution does not have to be applied to every stainless steel fastener assembly. The anti-seize is already in the nut (via the wax). This time-saving property makes Waxed Nylon Insert Lock Nuts ideal for assembly lines, factories, or anyone looking to skip a step and save time.

Waxed Nylon Insert Lock Nuts are functionally the same as regular Nylon Lock Nuts, however the wax treatment adds lubricity which deters thread galling commonly seen in stainless steel fasteners.The nylon material prevents loosening from vibration and cross threads to stop the nut from backing off of the fastener.
