Why Would Coating Bolts Make Sense In Some Situations?
Cleaning and painting of bare steel bolts in the field is likely to be difficult, expensive, and in some cases, not feasible.
The plain bolts, after stuffing in the holes, are expected to sit out in the weather for an extended period of time and get dried out and rusty, making correct tightening difficult or impossible.
Release or retightening of the bolt within the foreseeable future is neces
Due to its unique benefits, Fluoropolymer Coating has been applied to various types and grades of fasteners. The water works industry takes advantage of the superior corrosion resistance properties by coating Hex-head bolts for underground service. Stainless steel fasteners, used in many different industries, are coated for lubricity and anti-galling.
Fluoropolymer coatings are extremely durable and not easily removed. However, during assembly of fasteners in the field, the coating can sometimes be damaged. With most other fluoropolymer coatings, this results in exposed bare metal that quickly begins to show corrosion and causes the coating to fail. Our metallic base coat ensures superior corrosion resistance and continues to provide protection even under the harshest conditions.
