Fasteners are used in a wide variety of applications to combine elements and provide a level of protection to the structure in which they are used. Fasteners are typically coated with a type of fastener coating dictated by the functionality required and the environmental demands. When evaluating the quality of fasteners, resilience and durability are the key considerations and the right type of fastener coating makes all the difference.
The Importance of Selecting the Right Fastener Coating
Exposure to certain types of chemicals or environmental conditions can reduce the life span of fasteners, particularly when not properly coated. Fasteners that experience rust or damage can be dangerous in certain environments and may be costly to replace. It is important to select the right type of fastener coating for the application needs and environmental demands initially, to mitigate risk and avoid costly situations later.
Fastener Coatings with Corrosion Resistance
Custom coating manufacturers rely on environmental testing like salt spray tests to determine the level of corrosion resistance of fastener coatings. Fastener coatings are used to provide rustproof nails, screws, nuts, and bolts with corrosion resistance. Lubricant blends and fluoropolymer coatings reduce friction during installation. Epoxy coatings deliver corrosion resistance and superior protection against impact and abrasion. Fastener coatings for outdoor applications may include zinc for excellent corrosion resistance, phenolic coatings deliver good protection in high temperature environments. High-quality fastener coatings protect fasteners and structures for longevity in both indoor and outdoor environments.
