Paint and E-coat resistant coatings

Paint and E-coat resistant coatings

(OP)
Is there a coating that can be used on studs to keep paint and e-coat off the threads without using a stud protector?

RE: Paint and E-coat resistant coatings

Fluorocarbon masking is used routinely for this purpose.  Try Nylok:

Teflon - We use it on weld studs in the body shop prior to E-coat and paint. Sometimes it also pays to add a nut with paint cutter threads.
