  • Approved applicators: Applying these products to a common audited standard ensures the same coating performance throughout the applicator base.
  • High performance: Exceeding corrosion resistance of hexavalent chromate systems and exceptionally consistent torque and tension characteristics.
  • Global consistency: Wherever ZinKlad coatings are applied, applicators know they are using the same high performance products.

Of course, compliance with legislation, such as ELV & RoHS, and predictable torque-tension performance continue to be essential requirements. ZinKlad continues to deliver on all of these needs.
