For The Maritime Industry
It's no secret that a salt water marine environment is a difficult one for metals. When the hull of a ship, boat, or oil rig is underwater, corrosion is inevitable. You will find Big Bolt fasteners used for decks, ramps, bulkheads, tanks and a wide range of marine products and components. On top of that, other areas of the structure are often above the water line, exposed to the salty sea air. These environments call for different corrosion-resistant solutions including hot dipped galvanized and stainless steel parts. And we know that oftentimes, there is more than one bolt, screw or nut that will get the job done. That’s why Big Bolt carries a wide variety of high-quality custom fasteners for the maritime industry, made from an array of materials and grades, high strength and exotic alloys, that are tested to meet SAE, ASTM, ASME, and ISO standards.
