Architects and building owners want broader guarantees and longer
warranties from contractors and design professionals. I’m seeing this
applied to fasteners more and more.
The industry’s application of higher-grade stainless fasteners is on
the rise because high-grade stainless fasteners, such as the
Crete-Flex® SS4, offer aesthetic benefits, structural integrity,
and long-life performance.
Crete-Flex in particular is becoming increasingly popular because of
its corrosion resistance, enhanced ductility, high pull-out and shear
values, and installation consistency to ensure reliable performance.
Corrosion resistance salt spray tests per ASTM B117 show Crete-Flex
beats a Buildex 410 Stainless Tapcon by 50% (2400 vs. 1600 hours).
