Project Description


Many projects require painting or top-coating after fastener installation. Typical nut lubricants do not provide satisfactory paint adhesion without significant cleaning and surface preparation. The time and expense associated with cleaning and preparing a traditional nut for painting is a particular problem for contractors, often costing several times the amount of the fastener. Clean-Lube eliminates these problems, resulting in lower total installed cost.


  • Lubricant Free, Paintable Surface
  • No special prep prior to topcoat
  • Post application curedBenefits
  • Less variation in pretension
  • More consistent k-factor
  • Reduce surface prep cost up to 75%

• Acrylic latex based lubricant
• Applied to each nut individually

• Reduced temperature sensitivity • Superior Rotational Capacity Test
