Corrosion
Have you ever walked by a railroad track and have seen rivets that seem corroded? Or how about a bridge that guides you over a body of water? Corrosion is bound to happen to any rivet that can be influenced by weather and alternative natural occurrences if not appropriately treated. Luckily, with the right amount of knowledge before starting your "big" task, you will be able to prevent quick corrosion to your fasteners.

Rivets and the Rail Industry
Do you remember the great “Rival Rails” Train Race across the continental US? With some of the great innovators like Richard Branson and others, interest in building the newest and fastest trains has a rebound. The need for speed requires the latest technologies and infrastructure using some of the most significant breakthroughs in vibration-resistant fasteners. The use of high-speed trains on the current infrastructure in the US is in its infancy due to the sizable cost. The substantial investment required for the future of rail will help us live up to the goal of making the industry “Cleaner and Greener.”

Sailing
Owning and sailing on your new boat can be a thrilling time and an enjoyable diversion. Of course, it is not all fun and games, and first-time owners must understand that boats require constant maintenance and vigilance. If you do not maintain your vessel correctly, you may find yourself up a creek without a paddle. On today's boats, both sail and motorized, we find a lot of fiberglass, thin laminates or teak that require specialized means of fastening. There are many different types of hardware and safety equipment that can be difficult to properly fasten with a machine screw and nut or sheet metal screw. Today we can use many different components to allow us to bind these thin materials with no access to the backside or better referred to as the "blindside."

Wind Turbine

Climate change has had an immense impact on the world we live in today, causing a vast interest in producing renewable resources. Wind turbines, in particular, can generate substantial amounts of energy without producing large amounts of greenhouse gases unlike alternative solutions of energy production. To meet the high demands of conscious consumers, we begin to see an abundance of wind farms both on and offshore.
