M16x1.5 DIN985 NYLOC NUTS IN BRASS
Monday 12th December 2016
We made some nylon insert nuts in a fine pitch format out of CZ121 (CW614N) hexagon brass bar. These were made to DIN985 standard and are often known as nylock nuts or nyloc nuts.
These are a prevailing torque type of nut that uses a nylon ring to create increased torque upon application. When the nut is tightened onto a bolt or setscrew the nylon ring deforms and creates a tight frictional fit which reduces the risk of the nut loosening upon vibration. We typically use Nylon 66 in a natural colour for this.
We typically use Tecamid 66 material for this.
