MACHINE BOLT with PTFE coated
Coatings of Xylan offer many benefits for offshore service. These include resistance to corrosion and chemical attack, superb subsea visibility, lower maintenance costs and less downtime.
Type : Stud and machine bolt
Material : B7/A325/A320/GR 8.8
Top coat : Whitford PTFE Xylan 1424
Standard : ANSI B18.1.1.
Extensive testing and field use have proven that the future of coated fastener’s lies with Fluoropolymer coatings. Previously hot dip, galvanized, cadmium or zinc plated fasteners were considered the standard. But these coatings could not stand up to the corrosive atmospheres prevalent in many industries. The most widely used application is on B7 studs with 2H nuts.
Dramatic improvements in efficiency, life expectancy and corrosion resistance are claimed to be imparted to Nut and Bolt connectors by the application of a low friction PTFE coating. PTFE coated connectors have out-performed all others in aggressive any noticeable effect.
