The Torque 'N' Tension UV Fluid is formed by a water-based liquid composed of practically neutral substances.
It is applied to threaded fasteners that have been protected against corrosion with protective coatings (hot dip galvanisation, mechanical or electrolytic galvanization, organic and non-organic coatings).
Torque 'N' Tension UV Fluid once applied forms a dry, non-sticky and UV-detectable film.
The purpose of this lubrication is to reduce the friction coefficient on the coated parts and to control the tension that can be obtained with a given twist during assembly.
The non-lubricated fastener requires a greater twist to tighten it is very unpredictable and may not reach the desired tension without the fixation device defects.
Correct lubrication of the fastening devices leads to predictable and reproducible torsion-tension behaviors and therefore in safer joints in torsionally controlled fasteners.
Torque 'N' Tension UV Fluid is used for high-strength coated fastenings in applications where rotary or nut-type fastening systems are used and where control of the bolt mounting rotary capacity, nut and washer is required to determine safety of an acceptable lubrication.
Torque 'N' Tension UV Fluid does not evaporate and always remains on the pieces until they are used, it is not toxic, it is colorless and it is easy to handle.
