precote® 30

precote® 30 – Medium Strength Threadlocking Coating with Heavy-Duty Performance

precote® 30 is a medium strength thread locking and sealing coating designed to be used
on all types of external or internal threaded fasteners. It is especially recommended for
fasteners with thread sizes equal or larger than M16 in order to provide easier disassembly.
It’s low Coefficient of Friction provides lower installation torque values and it is ideal
for engine plug sealing applications.

Pre-applied, dry to the touch and providing unmatched vibration resistance for threaded fasteners with sizes M16 and above, precote® 30's signature yellow locking and sealing fastener threadlocking system, provides unparalleled reliability for fastening components in place during assembly. It is activated when compression or shear stress ruptures the micro-capsules after the assembly of the screw. The threadlocking is released and within a short time the system hardens, providing silverback strength and hold – even under the most extreme conditions.

 

Also available with two additives:

  1. “- 3” , precote® 30-3 provides a fast curing time, accelerating the locking effectiveness.
  2. “- 8”, and precote® 30-8 is added for utilization with thread sizes M6 and smaller.

The following combinations are available:

  • precote® 30:
    Standard thread locker for threads > M6 or pitches > 1mm.
  • precote® 30-3:
    Accelerated curing for threads > M6 or pitches > 1mm. Yellow UV marker visible under UV light.
  • precote® 30-8:
    Standard thread locker for threads ≤ M6 or pitches ≤ 1mm. White UV marker visible under UV light.
  • precote® 30-3-8:
    Accelerated curing for threads ≤ M6 or pitches ≤ 1mm. White UV marker visible under UV light.
Application

precote® 30 is a middle strength thread locking and sealing coating designed to be used on all types of external or internal threaded fasteners. It is recommended for fasteners with thread sizes equal or larger than M16 to provide easier disassembly. From screws to studs to pipe threads and non-standardized parts, its dual microencapsulation maintains high integrity and is proven to increase productivity at the assembly line.
