PPG has announced that it will highlight its complete line of fastener coatings and global support capabilities for the automotive, construction and general metal-fabrication industries at the 2017 International Fastener Expo, Oct. 18-19 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Fastener Coatings for Automotive & General Metal-fabrication Industries


PPG will feature the capabilities of the ALLTECH ENGINEREED FINISHES™ facility, a PPG-owned operation in Taiwan that offers an array of pretreatment and electrocoat (e-coat) finishing services for fasteners and related products. Products on display will include PPG ELECTROPOLYSEAL® bulk coatings, the Spincoat family of zinc-rich finishes and PPG RUSTAREST® 53253 oil pretreatments.

Electropolyseal Coatings

  • It enables bulk processing of small parts and fasteners for e-coat lines using barrel and basket application methods
  • They are compatible with zinc-rich liquid coatings for dip-spin, dip-drain and spray lines, enabling manufacturers to manage costs and increase product performance by combining bulk application processes with high-quality finishes

Electropolyseal, Spincoat AR and Spincoat ZR finishes feature torque-modified finishes for easy and consistent application via e-coat and dip-spin processes. They are also chrome-free, lead-free and compliant with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive.

PPG helps parts manufacturers implement and manage fastener-coating processes throughout North America, Latin America, Europe and the Asia Pacific region.

The International Fastener Expo (formerly the National Industrial Fastener and Mill Supply Expo) is the largest business-to-business trade show of industrial fasteners and tooling and machinery in North America, attracting more than 2,500 attendees and 850 industry suppliers. Since 1981, the event has brought together manufacturers and master distributors of fasteners, precision formed parts, fastener machinery and tooling, and other related products and services with distributors and sales agents in the distribution chain.
