316 stainless nylon lock nuts

316 stainless steel are a molybdenum-bearing austenitic stainless steel. 316 series stainless steel contains more nickel compared to 304 stainless steel which gives it a better corrosions resistance compared to 300 series stainless steel. 316 stainless steel can withstand such harsh environments while being exposed to water (fresh and sea), chloride corrosion, and other chemicals such as sulfuric, phosphoric and acetic acids. It also offers good strength and creep resistance while being exposed to subzero temperatures while still maintain mechanical and corrosion resistances.

What are nylon lock nuts?

Nylon insert lock nuts (also known as nylocks) are a threaded hex nuts with nylon insert collars that resist turning. The plastic nylon is placed at the end of the nut. When tightened, the nylon portion locks into the threads of the screws, but does not get cut, allowing the nylon nut to be reused.

We carry nylon lock nuts in both standard and metric sizes. We also carry them in the NE, NM, NTM, NTE, NTU, and NU pattern.
