Light Base Coated Flange Bolts

Made in the USA flag

Applications

We have created the strongest and longest lasting coated flange bolts on the market. What makes us different? Our flange bolts start with Grade 5 carbon steel and are then treated with a specialized coating that provides unmatched chemical/corrosion resistance and assists in achieving higher clamping forces. Comprehensive testing concludes that our bolts show no signs of corrosion when exposed to potassium acetate and other chemicals found in de-icing solutions. Testing also revealed that after our bolts were torqued to recommended specifications, they showed little or no wear, allowing them to be reused in most cases. Most coated flange bolts on the market today must be replaced after a single use.

Fluoropolymer Coating

The coating is a resin bonded, low-friction, fluoropolymer used in high corrosion areas to lubricate and protect hardware and threaded fasteners. This coating has already been utilized in both salt water and chemical processing applications. Our bolts have undergone in-depth testing done for chemical resistance to potassium acetate as per FAA AC 42G sec. 4.1.6. The results showed absolutely no signs of corrosion.
