The required clamping effect is achieved by screwing into a nut or a specific component. While screwing, the nylon is compressed. The radial tension created by the elastic deformation of the product causes a retaining by the increase of friction.
The effect is achieved where the axial clearance between the bolt and nut or specific component is filled with TUFLOK® (1). This TUFLOK® process generates a strong metal-to-metal radial load on the flanks of the nut or specific component, which causes the screw locking (2).
