Pre-Coated Fasteners (MEC)

MEC Coatings by ThreeBond

ThreeBond pre-applied (MEC) material utilizes microencapsulation technology to coat threaded fasterners, providing powerful locking and sealing characteristics. ThreeBond handles the entire process of coating fasteners - manufacturing the coating material, preparing the fastener for coating and applying the MEC to the fastener at our Ohio facility. Our Ohio facility is ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified.

PRECOATED NUTS & BOLTS

BENEFITS OF USING MEC COATING

Eliminate errors: line workers can be certain the adhesive is on the part, in the correct location and correct amount.

Eliminate physical locking mechanisms: such as cotter pins and lock washers.

Reduce chance of skin irritation: dry to the touch

Reduce component costs and assembly time

Easy to use with automation equipment

Environmentally friendly

Anti-tampering agent: leaves a colored residue if the fastener is removed.

MAIN USES: SCREWS, NUTS & BOLTS THAT REQUIRE SEALING AND LOCKING

This processing technique provides fasteners with the sealing and locking function by applying micro-capsulated adhesive on the threaded parts of the bolt in a special process. When the fastener is assembled, the micro-capsule is ruptured and it adheres as a result of a polymerization reaction.

CROSS-SECTION VIEW OF A MEC-PROCESSED PART

With the surface of the threaded part processed by the micro-encapsulated high-reactive adhesive agent, the fastener is coated with the sealant and locking agent.
