Fixings might appear simple enough to use, but there are a fair number of dos and don’ts that you must be made aware of if you intend to take full advantage of them. A good example of a do would be to consider electropolishing. This form of finishing aims to enhance corrosion resistance through the thickening of the defensive chromium oxide layer that naturally occurs on stainless steel.

Another do would be to inaugurate and stick to a cleaning schedule of sorts. Any stainless steel component that is in use has to be cleansed to rid it of contaminants, such as salt, and preserve its appearance. Although the material does have a naturally higher resistance, this doesn’t mean you dont need to do any upkeep.

In terms of what you don’t want to do, you certainly should ensure you avoid unintentionally buying low nickel stainless steel fixings. We’ve been alerted to the fact that there are low-nickel, high-manganese products that can be obtained. It’s usually the case that they come with a reduced chromium level, making them more vulnerable to rusting. There’s no need to fret about inferior fixings with us however; we provide the best and nothing less.

At Peter Wragge Supplies, we offer fixings that have been coated mechanically using zinc, with dichromate passivation added in there for extra protection. Our fixings are treated in ways that supply them with outstanding drilling capabilities and power, so we’re confident that they’re more than suitable for the applications you wish to use them in.
