Thread Armor® VC is a pre-applied thread lubricating coating process which contains a PTFE material for anti-galling on Stainless Steel fasteners. Cross-linking within the coating provides excellent solvent resistance, high temperature resistance, e-coat resistance, weld spatter resistance, resistance to most typically used automotive fluids, and improvement to torque-tension properties.
After choosing Thread Armor® VC 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.
Thread Armor VC prevents undesirable substances such as electro-deposited undercoatings, weld spatter and some other materials from adhering to fastener threads.
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.
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.
