SDC Clean-Bolt Series

It is only one proven technology in the world.

No lubricant grease or oil, Ag (silver) plating nor dry film lubricant are required to prevent galling.
Stainless steel fasteners are particularly susceptible to thread galling.
During the tightening of the fastener, pressure builds between the contacting and sliding thread surfaces and breaks down the protective oxide coatings. With the absence of the protective oxide, interface metal high points shear or lock together. In the extreme, galling leads to seizing and welding.
SDC Clean bolt is the most effective fastener to withstand wear and galling, while meeting corrosion resistance, when there is need for cleanness as in semiconductor devices or sanitation as in food or pharmaceutical processing, which precludes the use of lubricants.

Hardness

Material: S31603(316L)
There is no crack nor peeled in case
hardened layer despite the base mate -
rial was plastically deformed with high
load impact. The case hardened layer
followed the base material deformation.
