FluoroKote#1® possesses a low coefficient of friction which reduces torque requirements. When FluoroKote#1® coated fasteners are used, galling and seizing become problems of the past. Due to the absence of nut locking oxides after extensive exposure to corrosive environments, fasteners coated with our process do not need to be removed by torching, cutting or nut splitting. The easy on/easy off properties exhibited by these fasteners provide safe removal with wrenches. Lower your plant maintenance cost and increase safety by using FluoroKote#1® coated fasteners.
Fluoropolymer coatings are extremely durable and not easily removed. However, during assembly of fasteners in the field, the coating can sometimes be damaged. With most other fluoropolymer coatings, this results in exposed bare metal that quickly begins to show corrosion and causes the coating to fail. Our metallic base coat ensures superior corrosion resistance and continues to provide protection even under the harshest conditions.
