Nycote® thread masking prevents weld spatter, electro-deposited paints, primers or coatings from adhering to the threads.

Nylok’s patented Nycote® coating process provides an affordable and efficient way of protecting fastener threads from weld spatter and electro-deposited paints, primers and coatings. Nycote® is a non-conductive powder thread coating that can be applied to virtually any fastener to add lubricity and reduce torque versus tension scatter.

Nycote® is widely used in industries such as agricultural, automotive, appliance, electronics, HVAC, machinery, marine, outdoor power equipment, recreation equipment and telecommunications manufacturing.


  • Eliminates masking, plugging or capping of threads
  • Eliminates the need for “slave” bolts
  • Eliminates re-tapping which can compromise quality and safety
  • Prevents the adhesion of electro-deposited primers and coatings
  • Prevents adhesion of weld spatter
  • Reduces torque vs. tension scatter
  • Improves lubricity and reduces installation drive friction
  • Can be coated to external or internal threaded fasteners
  • Achieves known and repeatable clamp load
  • Guarantees good electrical grounding
  • Reduces manufacturing cost by increasing productivity
  • Coating is only on the threads — not grip length or faces
