Lubricating & Masking

A range of processes developed to prevent fastener seizing, reduce installation torque, limit material adhesion, and more. ND’s masking and lubricating processes help customers decrease assembly and disassembly time which leads to an increase in productivity. Pre-Applied fasteners are ready for use right out of the box with no curing or drying required.



Anti-SeizeND’s Antiseize products are a pre-applied lubricants meant to prevent galling of metals at high temperatures. This water-based material is applied to threaded fasteners and subsequently dried to a non-tacky coating. This material effectively lubricates threaded assemblies, permitting easy disassembly in temperatures of up to 1,200°F (650°C).
