A thin electroplating coating layer can be used to improve the corrosion resistance of most bolting components under general indoor usage conditions. It can also be combined with an appropriate topcoat (e.g. fluoropolymers) for outdoor usage or even severe environmental conditions.
- Zinc Plating as per ASTM B633 or ASTM F1941
- Cadmium Plating as per ASTM B766 or ASTM F1941
- Zinc-Nickel Plating as per ASTM B841 or ASTM F1941
As a Whitford Quality Approved Coater, we proudly endorse Xylan® fluoropolymer coatings. Xylan® coatings are widely used in the petrochemical industry to provide improved resistance to chemical attack, abrasion and corrosion, allowing them to be used in severe environmental conditions.
- Whitford Xylan® 1014
- Whitford Xylan® 1070
- Whitford Xylan® 1424
Xylar® 2 ceramic-metal coatings are used to provide corrosion resistance even in high temperature environments, where many other coating solutions fail.

A thick galvanized coating layer can be used to improve the corrosion resistance of most bolting components under general outdoor usage conditions.
- Hot-Dip Galvanized as per ASTM A153, ASTM F2329, BS 7371-6, ISO 1461 or ISO 10684
- Mechanically Deposited Zinc as per ASTM B695
As a NOF Metal Coatings licensee, we proudly endorse DACROMET® and GEOMET® zinc-aluminium coatings. A thin zinc-aluminium layer can be used to improve the corrosion resistance of all bolting components under indoor, outdoor and offshore usage conditions. The zinc-aluminium coating process is free from risk of hydrogen embrittlement, allowing it to be used even for very high strength bolting materials
- NOF DACROMET® as per ASTM F1136 or ISO 10683
- NOF GEOMET® as per ASTM F1136 or ISO 10683
