Technical Data

Recommended maximum safe vertical working loads for Bluemay Nylon Threaded Rod, Buffalo Bolts and T-nut Connectors:

M6 – 30kg M10 – 80kg M16 – 165kg
M8 – 50kg M12 – 120kg M20 – 215kg

Temperature range from +50ºC to -30ºC.

Please note: figures quoted are for vertical loads only – no data is available for inclined or horizontal loads.

Tightening and use of Nuts

Care should be taken not to overtighten nuts when used with thermoplastic threaded rod.
NUTS SHOULD BE TIGHTENED BY HAND AND GIVEN HALF A TURN WITH A SPANNER.

WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THE USE OF STEEL NUTS WITH THERMOPLASTIC THREADED ROD OR BOLTS.
