Climaseal 4®, the new coating finish from
Buildex, is the end-result of over ten years of "real world" testing, providing a thorough understanding of corrosion and its prevention.
Real world testing has exposed many deficiencies with the acceptance of coated finishes as "deem to comply", simply because of thickness and density measurements.
The new Climaseal®4 coating is a layered system, combining both a high density sacrificial coating substrate, over which a barrier top coat has been applied. The Climaseal®4 is then applied by a new, environmentally friendly, processing system.
Climaseal®4 meets and exceeds AS3566 Class 4 Specifications. It should be used in coastal areas where salt, wind, UV and moisture are prevalent, in tropical zones and industrial areas. It is particularly recommended for use in moderate and severe marine environments.
From 2004 onwards, a number of Buildex Climaseal®3 and all ZACS®4 coated fasteners, will have their coating finish converted to Climaseal®4.
All Climaseal®4 coated screws are easily recognisable by their silver/blue appearance, the "BXZ4" marking on the screw head, and the blue stripe found on the label packaging of Buildex bulk boxes and trade packs.
