Bolting lubricants or thread compounds perform one very important function; controlling friction. Friction control is needed for both accurate bolt loading and easy loosening of the bolts. As a provider of world-class bolted joint solutions Hydratight’s key focus is the correct assembly of bolted joints, so in order to better control the variables of joint assembly we developed our own line of thread compounds (Lubricant Solutions).
We have three primary lubricant blends; each with a separate field application.
* Nickel 328 for high temperature and high bolt loads
* Moly-B for high temperature, high bolt load, on carbon and exotic bolts
* Water Boy for new construction where excess oil and grease threatens to prolong cleanup before painting is completed
