Enthone Automotive Solutions for fasteners feature zinc and zinc alloy systems that provide unmatched functionality, reliability and exceptional corrosion performance on both threaded and non-threaded fasteners. Each system features a zinc or zinc alloy coating, followed by a passivate and an optional sealant. Enthone coatings create value throughout the entire supply chain by decreasing metal and chemical consumption, increasing productivity and reducing process steps while helping OEMs meet objectives that range from fuel efficiency to corrosion protection. Exclusive Enthone ELV compliant systems optimize quality, increase durability and extend life, while meeting stringent OEM industry standards.
Enthone cobalt-free systems deliver exceptional corrosion protection that may eliminate the need for a post-seal or lacquer. An environmentally sound and OEM preferred alternative to hexavalent chromates and conventional thick film passivates, the cobalt-free systems meet the emerging European Government directive to eliminate Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC), which may include the banning of cobalt salts.
