Online Information Centre for Stainless Steel in Construction
This resource is a guidance note from the Construction Fixings Association (CFA). Firstly, an introduction to the conditions that typically lead to corrosion in metallic fixings is presented and a brief guide to correct material selection given. Secondly the different types of corrosion that can occur and the methods to prevent them are described. Finally 6 metals are considered (zinc plated steel, HDG coated brackets, aluminum, unplated structural steel, cast steel and stainless steel) and the corrosion resistance according to the different available finishes is summarised.
