Fasteners are used in almost all manufacturing sectors. As manufacturing practices develop, and new industries emerge, fasteners need to evolve alongside. This is where the innovation occurs. Changing the material is not always and option, or unwanted for cost reasons. In these cases, the solution may be found in the coating.
The coating required depends of course on the application. And that’s not all – coatings should also maintain uniform thickness and critical tolerances for parts with complicated geometries. Consistency in environmental compliance is especially important if you’re part of a global supply chain.
