Self-locking Nytemp fasteners maintain torque and clamp load stability at temperatures to 450°F (232°C). The fasteners need no drilling or milling and are unaffected by water, antifreeze, gasoline, motor oil, and hydraulic fluids. The fasteners reportedly have the industry's highest reusability factory 15 cycles and meet NASA requirements for low out-gassing. The orange-colored Nytemp polymer is applied internally and externally on threads of aerospace and defense fasteners made from alloys including A286, Inco718, and Cres300 Series. The self-locking fasteners meet MIL-STD-1312 #7 torque and vibration specs as well as industry specifications IFI-124, IFI-524, IFI-155, and IFI-555.
