Self-locking nylon nuts from Bülte
The self-locking nuts are suitable for applications that require extra security, as they eliminate backlash without sacrificing efficiency. This type of nut is more effective than standard hex nuts because it includes a no threaded part which closes around the thread creating a lock between the two threads.
Self-locking nuts are being used as a secure fastening nut for joining many kinds of parts. They are manufactured from natural Polyamide 6.6 that, when combined with steel screws, provides low drag torque and smooth operation throughout the life of the assembly (preferably not reusable). They also save weight over the conventional steel/nylon lock nuts.
The cost-effective plastic nuts are widely used in a variety of industrial applications (electronic and electrical equipment, construction, furniture and medical industries) requiring such properties as strength, corrosion resistance, oil resistance, low weight alternatives and low thermal conductivity. The working temperature range is -30 to +100degC. Metric sizes include M5, M6, M8, M10 and M12.
The self-locking nuts can also be supplied in PP, PE and PVDF (these materials are recommended for their good food and medical qualities) and in a wide range of colours to suit your requirements.
