Micro nylon insert nuts to Din 985, also known as nylon insert nuts, are similar to hexagon full nuts but have a collar containing a nylon insert. Thes nylon insert reduces the internal diameter at the top (collar) of the nut. When a mating stud / screw is inserted into the nut the nylon deforms over the threads of the stud / screw but this does not cut into the nylon.

The nylon insert nut has two locking actions, it creates friction by pressing the bottom face of the threads against the top face of the threads and also applies substantial force against the screw itself.

Only advised for use in temperatures of upto 121 deg C (250F).
