precote® 85

precote® 85 – High Strength Vibration and Heat Resistance Threadlocker with Low CoF

precote® 85 is a high strength and high temperature resistant thread locking and sealing
coating designed to be used on all types of threaded fasteners.
precote® 85 features a very low coefficient of friction upon assembly providing excellent
controlled torque vs tension features. This exclusive turquoise colored precote® 85 can be
applied to either internal or external threaded fasteners.

Pre-applied fastener threadlocker, high-strength vibration resistant under
high-temperature applications with controlled torque vs. tension characteristics.

Temperature resistant from -58°F (-50°C) up to 390°F (200°C), its dual micro-encapsulated chemical threadlocker gives excellent vibration resistance under high-temperature applications. With very low coefficient of friction, this pre-applied fastener threadlocker also provides excellent Torque vs. Tension features.


During the assembly process the microcapsules are ruptured and the curing process begins. This exclusive turquoise colored Precote® 85 can be applied to either internal or external threaded fasteners. The pre-applied Precote 85 forms a tack-free dried film, non sticky and can be used in all kinds of assembly processes.

Also available with two additives:

  1. 3” , precote® 85-3 provides a fast curing time, accelerating the locking effectiveness.
  2. “- 8”, and precote® 85-8 is added for utilization with thread sizes M6 and smaller.

The following combinations are available:

  • precote® 85:
    Standard thread locker for threads > M6 or pitches > 1mm.
  • precote® 85-3:
    Accelerated curing for threads > M6 or pitches > 1mm. Yellow UV marker visible under UV light.
  • precote® 85-8:
    Standard thread locker for threads ≤ M6 or pitches ≤ 1mm. White UV marker visible under UV light.
  • precote® 85-3-8:
    Accelerated curing for threads ≤ M6 or pitches ≤ 1mm. White UV marker visible under UV light.

precote® 85 is the preferred fastener thread locking coating on critical assembly applications where controlled friction and locking ability are required even at high-temperatures (200° C). It can be applied to bolts, screws, nuts, studs and special threaded parts, as well as to straight and pipe thread plugs.

All versions of precote® 85 are high-strength thread locking coatings that retain their strength even at high-temperatures. They can be used on all types of external or internal threads.
