Pre-applied lubricant coatings reduce thread friction, allowing effective tightening at higher drive speeds with less operator fatigue. That all adds up to faster assembly times and reduced production costs.
Pre-applied lubricants are dry to handle during product assembly, with a long shelf life as they are chemically stable at room temperature. Selecting the right coating is easy because Belmatic has expertise and experience unequalled in the Australian fastener industry.
That knowledge is available to you through your project manager when you ask Belmatic to apply the ideal fastener coating for your requirements.
Pre-Applied Thread Lubricants Key benefits:
Cost effective: reducing assembly time, total assembly costs operator fatigue and tool wear.
Increase productivity and reduce downtime: Belmatic-applied thread lubricants improve torque clamp-down and speed up assembly operations.
Reduce heat build up and thread galling in long rundowns.
Ensure uniform clamp loading.
Minimise incidence of fasteners shearing during assembly.
Dry finish: we ensure easy handling in order to meet OH&S requirements. Belmatic applies sealants that eliminate drips, mess and fumes of liquid coatings applied at the point of assembly.
Local service: we ensure a fast and ?flexible turnaround, just-in-time delivery, ready access to expert advice and a commitment to building long-term relationships with Australian manufacturers.
Competitive pricing: getting your fastener coatings applied by Belmatic ensures you get excellent value for money without sourcing from Asia.
Specialist coatings are available for low drive-torque: ideal when controlled low drive torque is needed during assembly. Reduces installation torque on tri-lobular or self-threading screws. Thread masking prevents unwanted substances, such as weld spatter or electrostatic paint, from adhering to fastener threads for enhanced smooth running.
Combined thread masking / lubricant: a patented blend of polymers (including Te?on®) providing lubricity with minimal pre-cleaning. Does not cause heat damage or discolouration to the fastener during processing.
Available brands: 3M, Loctite, ND Industries, OmniTechnik, Tectorius North America. Belmatic-applied lubricants stop binding.
