We stock a variety of plastic male thread protectors (MTP’s) for use with our male threaded fasteners. These sleeves protect the threads of your fastener from damage in transit, prevent adhesives and resin from contaminating the thread and can also be used for a variety of other uses. They are available as three main types:
MTP: a tight fit, closed end thread protector – designed to remain in place even when shaken, placed upside-down, etc.
MTPT: an easy fit, closed end thread protector – designed for an easier installation and removal, for when a tight fit is not required.
MTPO: an open ended thread protector – also designed for an easier installation and removal, is open ended and can be used along with either closed end MTP or MTPT as an extension to protect longer threads.
We offer a variety of diameters (4mm to 10mm) and lenths in all three versions.
Additionally, we stock female thread protectors (FTP’s) which are 15mm diameter stickers which can be used to help prevent the ingress of adhesives, etc. within the internal threads of our F1 hex nut and F2 collar inserts.
