Question Degreasing

Is it necessary to degrease threaded screws etc on a new Trex 500L?

A good idea, probably. Necessary, nah. If you are worried, use an oil tolerant thread locker.

I always dip wipe and redip on a new screw. Ill see the orangeish protectant come off. Some dip in actone. But then the heads rust so I do above to thread. On heavy load I use a 609 green but just the very top threads as its ment to penetrate a pre fastened tread from out side. Sum times requires heat to free. But yes blue 409 n oil will not work well
