Coater's Corner: Fastener options and dissimilar metal corrosion
Architectural finishing of products that are expected to withstand the stresses of outdoor weather environments requires special attention to all details in all phases of design, processing, installation, and customer care. The most important physical attribute of protective coatings for architectural applications is to prevent corrosion during the expected service life of a product. Not to understate the importance of color and gloss retention, but corrosion is considered to be the cancer of all metal finishing failure modes. When corrosion is determined to be the failure mode within a given warranty period, the failure is often referred to as catastrophic.
