High-strength structural bolts are designed for steel-to-steel connections. They are ideal for applications requiring high tensile strength or tension control such as use in bridges, buildings, airports, stadiums and other structures requiring steel-to-steel connections.
Structural products are often exposed to many external factors such as water, varying temperatures or salty air, and can corrode quickly if not protected with a coating.
Corrosion, which is a process of gradual destruction of metallic materials, can significantly affect the quality of the fasteners. In fact, corrosion is considered one of the leading causes of damage to these fasteners.
