Galvanic Corrosion Protection
In response to customer demands, Nylok developed and released a new product (NyShield®) that is effective in preventing galvanic corrosion between steel fasteners and the most extreme lightweight materials (including magnesium and carbon fiber), as well as all metals in-between (aluminum, stainless steel, chromium, etc.). This product allows for the use of steel fasteners for these “at risk” joints instead of turning to much more expensive and less practical alternatives. At this time when these materials are being used to light weight many products this has become a major issue especially in the automotive industry. Also, up to this time there has been very few coatings that can withstand harsh environments as constant exposure to ocean water. Nylok’s breakthrough product NyShield® has been tested and protects to over 1,000 hours of salt spray testing in these extreme environments.
