What is Stalgard® CoatingStalgardScrewCircleRoHSLogo

Stalgard® corrosion resistant coatings are durable, multi-layer, coatings that are engineered to provide optimal performance in the most demanding construction applications. These environmentally friendly finishes are free from chromates & silicates and any process, like electroplating, that might induce hydrogen embrittlement & structural failures.

  • Maximizes fastener performance
  • Salt spray corrosion resistance at 1000+ hours with no red rust per ASTM B117
  • Uniform thickness
  • Low coefficient of friction – eliminates the need for post-coating lubricants to ease installation
  • Does not use processes that introduce hydrogen – will not cause brittle failures like those caused by electroplating
  • Durable tough finish – doesn’t come off during handling or repeated installations
  • Eliminates the plating process, resulting in a more environmentally friendly product than those with plated zinc or other finishes
  • RoHS Compliant – chrome-free
  • Clean and dry – no oily residue
  • Maintains drilling and tapping performance
  • Blue, grey, and white Stalgard are ACQ-compatible
