Fastener Point has its own in-house Galvanizing Plant at our Factory in Umm-al-Quwain and is successfully operating since 2006, complementary to our fabrication unit. This plant is capable of Hot Dip Galvanizing as per required standards of threaded and unthreaded Fasteners and steel components with an optimum output unit.
Hot Dip Galvanization is a form of galvanization. It is the process of coating iron and steel with zinc, which alloys with the surface of the base metal when immersing the metal in a bath of molten zinc. Galvanized steel is widely used in applications where corrosion resistance is needed without the cost of stainless steel.
Hot Dip Galvanized coating is relatively easier and cheaper to specify than an organic paint coating of equivalent corrosion protection performance. For fasteners British, European, American and International standard for hot-dip galvanizing are BS EN ISO 1461, BS EN ISO 10684, ASTM F2329, ASTM A153.
