PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS OF ISO METRIC THREADED FASTENERS WITH DRY FILM MICROENCAPSULATED ADHESIVE COMPOUND APPLED TO THE THREADS
|Publication Date:||1 December 2017|
This specification covers the performance of ISO Metric male threaded fasteners with dry film microencapsulated adhesive compound applied to the thread.
NOTE: Fasteners with microencapsulated adhesive compound applied to the thread are not recommended for re-use after initial assembly. Chemical residues from subsequent wash procedures may adversely affect the curing performance of the compound, and care should be taken in the selection of any media employed.
NOTE: These materials may be specified on fasteners that have multiple stage finishing processes. In some cases it may be advantageous to apply the adhesive material prior to the torque control lubricant. It is recommended that the processing route be agreed between the fastener maker, surface finisher and adhesive applicator to meet the Ford requirements.
