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
- FluoroKote #1® Coated Studs and Fasteners
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 make it valuable in many types of fastener applications:
The most popular application is on PTFE Blue B7 studs and PTFE 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. In addition, we have one of the largest inventory of PTFE B7 Cap Screws in the US.
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

You may not know, but but the Teflon™ trademark is owned by Chemours. The TEFLON™ trademark should always be used as an adjective qualifying the noun that defines the Chemours licensed product, i.e., TEFLON™ coatings. Furthermore, as TEFLON™ is a Chemours owned trademark, it should never be used as a descriptor. Therfore, it is fair to say that we produce B7 Teflon Studs.
