PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS OF THREADED FASTENERS WITH DRY FILM MICROENCAPSULATED ADHESIVE COMPOUND APPLIED TO THE THREADS
|Publication Date:||25 June 2020|
This specification covers the performance of male threaded fasteners with dry film microencapsulated adhesive compound applied to the thread.
The adhesive bonds during initial installation and provides no bonding if the fastener is removed and reinstalled.
Some torque control lubricants may affect adhesion of the compound to the threads. In those cases, it may be advantageous to apply the adhesive material prior to the torque control lubricant. It is recommended that the processing path be agreed between the fastener maker, surface finisher and adhesive applicator to meet the Ford requirements.
