YOU MUST USE ANTI-SEIZE AS A REGULAR PRACTICE, PARTICULARLY IN BLIND HOLES OR WITH NYLON INSERT NUTS- IF YOU EVER WANT TO REMOVE THE FASTENER.
LOC-TITE IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR NY-LOCK NUTS. USE ANTI-SEIZE!
IT’S AN ABSOLUTE REQUIREMENT WITH ALUMINUM!
ON APPLICATIONS WHERE THERE IS VIBRATION, BLUE OR RED LOC-TITE CAN BE SUBSTITUTED FOR ANTI-SEIZE ON THE BOLTS.
**The torque chart provided below is the reduced tightening torque specifications for US and Metric Fasteners when using Anti-Seize or Blue Loc-Tite.**
DO NOT TORQUE OUR FASTENERS OR ARP FASTENERS TO THE MANUFACTURERS’ RECOMMENDED VALUE WHEN USING ANTI-SEIZE OR LOC-TITE! YOU WILL PROBABLY DAMAGE THE BOLT THREADS OR THE THREADS YOU ARE THREADING INTO. THESE LUBRICANTS REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF TORQUE REQUIRED TO ACHIEVE PROPER TIGHTNESS!
All Torque Values Will Change When Using Stainless Steel.
Always use a lubricant for stainless steel applications.
(We recommend “Anti-Seize” or the Blue “Loc-Tite”)
