Specialty Coatings. IN STOCK.

Lightning Bolt & Supply is stocks fasteners in a wide variety of different platings.

Our most common platings include:

  • Zinc Chromate Clear/Silver

  • Zinc Chromate Yellow

  • Hot Dip Galvanized

  • Mechanical Galvanized

  • “Teflon Blue” PTFE Fasteners

We are committed to meeting your spec. Additional coatings that would increase the product life of the hardware can be easily provided. Such coatings include but are not limited to:

  • Fluoropolymer Coatings- resin/lubricant blends that offer excellent corrosion protection

  • Xylan® Coatings- a fluoropolymer that can extend component life

  • Phosphate Coatings- ferrous metal coating for anti galling and minor corrosion resistance

The product of thirty years’ expertise in industrial coating, FluoroKote #1® fluoropolymer coating far outperforms standard products in fastener protection. This means a lower coefficient of friction for quick, easy application, and reliable removal with ordinary wrenches even under extreme exposure to salt water or corrosive chemicals. A unique three-step coating process insures both consistent coating and excellent adhesion, even on the difficult-to-coat inside of threaded parts. FluoroKote #1® offers all this at costs that are comparable or less than standard fluoropolymer coatings.

The unique benefits of FluoroKote #1® make it valuable in many types of fastener applications:

  • The most popular application is on Teflon Blue B7 studs and 2H nuts, used at chemical plants, refineries and offshore platforms. The coating’s chemical resistance and easy on/easy off characteristics are perfect for these environments

  • Water utilities take advantage of FluoroKote #1®’s superior corrosion resistance by coating T-head bolts for underground service

  • Stainless steel fasteners, used in many different industries, are coated for lubricity and anti-galling
