There are two methods of minimizing the corrosion of steels.
The first is to separate the reacting phases, and the second is to reduce the reactivity of the reacting phases.
The separation of the reacting phases can be accomplished by metallic, inorganic or organic coatings, and film-forming inhibitors.
Reactivity can be reduced by alloying, anodic or cathodic protection, and chemical treatment of the environment.
Some methods of protection combine two or more forms.
In most environments, the corrosion rate of carbon steel is typically around 20 micrometers per year in a rural outdoor atmosphere and rising to more than 100 micrometers per year in coastal environments.
It is normally too high for a satisfactory application. The product design does not generally account for a base material loss.
Hence, cost-efficient corrosion protection solutions are necessary.
Coating material is a tried and tested approach for extending the life of a product by reducing corrosion risks.
At Engineering Edge, we offer a wide range of innovative anti-corrosion fasteners that are guaranteed to perform in various corrosive environments.
Check out our CORROSHIELD® coating technology for more details.
At Engineering Edge, we guarantee that each fastener undergoes extensive research and testing.
Each fastener passes the most detailed quality checks to exceed your expectations and perform for a minimum number of years before becoming structurally unreliable due to premature corrosion.
