Corrosion Resistant Bolts
Gould Fasteners supplies a large variety of bolts for many industrial applications, and that includes an expansive line of corrosion resistant bolts. These bolts are highly recommended for applications in which rust or corrosion is a potential problem, particularly in outdoor work environments and in the automotive, aerospace, electronics, and marine industries.
Corrosion is a common cause of failure in fasteners, usually in harsh work applications that involve salt water, hot concentrated acids, chemicals, and other substances that can be damaging to metal. That is why some companies require corrosion resistant bolts and similar fasteners, which ensure that fastened objects can last through these tough environments.
These bolts are constructed out of specialty metals that can withstand corrosive substances. Nickel alloys are most commonly used for corrosion protection in fasteners, while many other metals are also effective, like titanium, bronze, brass, and certain types of stainless steel. Polymer fasteners can also resist corrosion from acidic substances, although they are not recommended for high temperatures.
Gould Fasteners supplies corrosion resistant bolts of high quality. Some of these bolts are made out of a variety of corrosion-resistant materials, while other kinds are made of standard materials, but are covered in coatings and treatments that supply the protective quality. Available treatments include chrome plating, cadmium electroplating, zinc plating, phosphating, and hot dip galvanizing.
Gould’s inventory of corrosion resistant bolts is extensive. Shapes range from standard carriage and stud bolts to special styles and aircraft-specific bolts, and all styles and sizes are available from the distributor’s rich, diverse manufacturer base. Even bolts that are custom-designed and -made to drawings are available from many of these producers.
As with all of Gould’s bolts, a statistical quantity of these products is carefully pre-inspected at the supplier’s facility before being shipped to customers’ warehouses. This saves customers a lot of time and money, as defects or flaws are highly unlikely.
For nearly four decades, Gould Fasteners has earned a stellar reputation for supplying high-calibre bolts with top customer service. Contact the Gould team for a fast quotation or to learn more.
