Self-Sealing and Self-Locking Fasteners

A 16-page catalog covers high-pressure self-sealing fasteners with threadlocking options.

The ULlisted fasteners provide maximum gas and liquid sealing to 20,000 psi. The devices have a preassembled silicone O-ring embedded under the head in an asymmetrical groove that permits controlled compression and maximum reusability. The fasteners are available in machine screws, bolts, nuts, rivets, and self-sealing oversize washers.
