reducing the chance of damage to the part and making it less likely to loosen as a result of an uneven fastening surface.
It also uses a stamped metal insert which acts as a locking mechanism by deforming over the threads of the bolt.
the insert locks the Nut in two ways.
First, it forces the bottom face of the screw threads against the top face of the Nut threads, increasing the friction between the two.
Second, the insert applies a compressive force against the screw itself.
A good option where locking devices are required in high temperature applications.

Made from aircraft grade titanium 6AL-4V (grade 5), the outstanding benefits are that we roll the threads to produce greater fatigue strength and reduce galling. These bolts are in excess of 120,000psi ultimate tensile strength, suitable to replace both Grade 5 and Grade 8 steel bolts. We offer Race Spec drilled Flanged Hex Head Bolts, Flanged Hex Head, Tapered Socket Cap, Countersunk Bolts, Dome Head Bolts, Nuts and Washers – from 3mm to 12mm.
