Tech Note D100-23: Corrosion Protection of Fasteners


This Tech Note Updates and Replaces Tech Note D100-13

Summary: Moisture, airborne chemicals and pollutants can all combine to reduce the life of ferrous fasteners through corrosion. This Technical Note examines the corrosion process, available fastener finishes, methods of measuring corrosion and the relative durability of fastener finishes.

Disclaimer: Designs cited herein are not intended to preclude the use of other materials, assemblies, structures or designs when these other designs demonstrate equivalent performance for the intended use. CFSEI documents are not intended to exclude the use and implementation of any other design or construction technique.
