ND LM-1293®


ND LM-1293 is an automotive approved process in which fasteners are accurately coated with thread masking and lubricating materials. ND LM-1293 is compatible with male, female, ferrous, or non-ferrous threaded fasteners of virtually any finish. The use of PTFE materials along with ND’s proprietary binder system makes ND LM-1293 ideal for many applications such as e-cote and weld spatter prevention.

How it Works

After choosing ND LM-1293 processing, have your parts sent to one of ND’s service centers. ND will then apply the appropriate materials to your fasteners with our automated equipment which ensures consistent, quality results. Coated fasteners are then dried and repacked as needed. Upon arrival, parts are ready for immediate installation and use.


Reliable Masking

ND LM-1293 prevents undesirable substances such as electro-deposited undercoatings, weld spatter and some other materials from adhering to fastener threads.

Low Heat Process

Unlike competitive processes which often subject parts to extremely high temperatures that may damage or discolor the fastener, ND’s unique patented process employs minimal heat.

Minimal Pre-cleaning

Unlike competitive processes that require parts be completely free of oil or other rust preventative coatings, only parts with excessive oil or surface contaminants may require pre-cleaning.

Eliminates Capping & Plugging

ND LM-1293 eliminates the need to cap male and plug female threads.

Increases Productivity

Increases efficency by lubricating fastener threads which reduces driving friction, heat buildup, and thread galling in long rundowns while helping to ensure uniform clamp loading.

Versatile Application

ND LM-1293 processing creates a cross-linked coating which provides excellent solvent resistance, high temperature resistance, e-coat resistance, resistance to weld spatter, and improvement to torque-tension properties.

Process Benefits

  • Saves Time & Money: ND LM-1293 processed fasteners eliminate the need for re-tapping, plugging, capping, and slave bolts. This increases greatly reduces labor and material costs.
  • Quality Control: Pre-Applied ND LM-1293 fasteners are coated to specification, ensuring consistent performance.
  • Improved Consistency: ND LM-1293 acts as a lubricant and reduces variation in torque tension while lowering installation torque.
  • Electrical Grounding: ND LM-1293 processing helps to guarantee a good electrical ground.


  • Indefinite on part life under ideal storage conditions [+40°F (+4°C) to +90°F (+32°C)], but re-certification must occur once a year.
  • To meet your specific application needs, ND LM-1293 employs a wide range of polymers, including fluorinated ethylene polymer material.
  • As with all our Pre-Applied products, ND Industries can apply ND LM-1293 to your fasteners at any one of our regional service centers, or we can supply you with completed pre-applied fasteners.
