Here at Earnest Machine, we understand the problems that corrosion, chemical exposure and harsh environments can bring to fasteners used in industrial applications.
As a company centred around helping its customers succeed, preventing these issues is a big part of what we do.
Corrosion and wear are the greatest enemies to fasteners. Once corrosion begins, fasteners start to break down quickly, reducing their effectiveness and lifespan on any application. Fasteners made from carbon or high strength alloy steels, that are subjected to harsh environments or hazardous chemicals, typically have a plating or coating applied to their surface to protect the steel underneath. Fasteners that lack this protective layer can become damaged, ultimately compromising their assembly, which can be both dangerous and costly to replace.
