The decorative dip-spin black top coat enhances corrosion resistance while the low coating thickness can be applied to the entire existing zinc plated/stainless steel stock. The thin layer application is ideal for small fastener parts in instances where the tolerances are limited with no build-up in the recess or threads of the screw. Also in conformity with EU guidelines relation to the End of Life Vehicle Directive (2000/53/EC), the surface treatment is completely free of any hazardous substances.
