As you torque a bolt, friction will cause the fastener to bind to whatever it is being tightened to. This can lead to the bolt stretching further than recommend and weakening it. Adding ARP’s torque lube prior to tightening bolts, studs, or fasteners will prevent them from bonding and stretching unevenly. This allows for an even preload distribution to reach recommenced tensile strength.
We recommend ARP because of its proven ability to handle the extreme duress that studs and bolts, main studs and bolts, and driveline are expected to handle. It’s 100% metal free, corrosion resistant, and features the highest melting point of all lubes tested at 360 degrees Fahrenheit. Time and time again it provides reliable performance with consistent preloads across fastener groups.
