Fast, clean, ecological: WASI stainless steel fasteners with Lubo Lubrication 22 September 2017

Working with Dutch company Lubo International B.V, WASI has expanded its range with a product that promises customers significant benefits in daily work – saving time as well as avoiding cold welding.

Whether it’s screws, threaded bolts, hydraulic couplings or special constructions, using WASI stainless steel connecting elements pre-treated with Lubo Lubrication means you can work more efficiently and economically.

The constantly low coefficient of friction of 0.12 avoids cold welding. Screws can be driven at up to 800 rotations per minute and can also be unscrewed again at any time without being destroyed. Thanks to its special characteristics, WASI connecting elements coated with Lubo Lubrication can be used in a wide variety of application, including machine construction, offshore assembly, shipbuilding, industry, structural engineering and civil engineering, as well as in the pharmaceutical and food industries.

A large selection of Lubo coated products are already waiting in the WASI warehouse. The range is constantly being expanded. Advantages of WASI stainless steel fasteners pre-treated with Lubo Lubrication include:

  • Drive screws up to 32x faster.
  •  Up to 800rpm instead of 25rpm.
  • Automatic screw driving possible.
  • Constantly low coefficient of friction of 0.12 (like steel).
  • Precise torque calculations possible.
  • Also suitable under extreme conditions.
  • Resistant to fresh and salt water, weak lyes and acids (960 hour salt spray test).
