Specialty Coatings


Specialty Coatings are paints, lubricants, and custom, high-performance finishes that are used in a wide variety of applications, including hood springs, window rails, seat tracks, and any number of brackets, clips, dowel pins, and hinges.

How it Works

ND’s complete line of coating products provide one or more of the following: • Lubrication • Temperature Protection • Friction Reduction / Modification • Corrosion Resistance • Torque Tension Modification • Clamp Load And Draw Up Modification • Seize And Gall Prevention • Clogging And Accumulation Prevention • Aesthetic Enhancement And Identification


Application Types

Specialty coatings can be applied via dip-and-spin, dip-drain, flood or spray processing.

Water-based capability

Most suppliers offer only solvent-based coatings, ND offers products in both solvent and water-based mediums.

Formula Bases

Specialty coatings are available in a variety of formula bases, including epoxy, acrylic, urethane and others.

Environmentally Friendly

Water based formulations are available with lower Volatile Organic Compounds.

Lower Shipping Costs

A direct benefit from non-hazardous formulas.

Coating adhesion

Specialty coatings will adhere to a variety of substrates


  • Saves Time: Fasteners coated with ND Specialty Coatings can be automatically fed through standard feeding devices.
  • Preserves Fastener Strength: Application and product will not induce hydrogen embrittlement.
  • Quality Control: Pre-Applied parts are coated to specification, insuring consistent performance.
  • Increased Margins: Add value to your fasteners without adding to inventory by supply customers with pre-applied fasteners.


  • 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.
  • ND Specialty Coatings do not typically require lead threads.
  • As with all our Pre-Applied products, ND Industries can apply ND Specialty Coatings to your fasteners at any one of our regional service centers, or we can supply you with completed pre-applied fasteners.
