Inlex Locking Ltd are the threadlocking and sealing specialist in the UK based in Wolverhampton who provide a comprehensive range of thread locking and sealant products for today’s high-tech fastening applications.
Applied via robotic and automated equipment using the latest technologies, application of reactive microencapsulated adhesives and non-reactive thread and underhead sealants systems provide the solution to the perennial problems of sealing metal to metal joints, whilst not affecting the integrity of the joint. The latest technology at Inlex allows duplex patches to be applied featuring two different products on the same fastener or if required single application of the same material on both thread and underhead in one application.
The sealing provided by systems including Precote® 5 and 15 from omniTECHNIK, Microseal 204 prevents potential problems such as water ingress, sealing on fluid tanks, roof channels and also provides vibration and elevated temperature solutions to service performance of unsealed systems. Both reactive and non-reactive sealants as well as Inlex Locking Ltd Rimlex® systems are pre-applied to threads or under head forms, away from the joint assembly area, ensuring the correct amount is applied. These dry films are highly visible, elastic, none hardening and dispensed in accurate amounts ensuring robust and consistent joints.
