Heavy Hex Head Bolt

Heavy Hex Head Bolt

There are several ASTM bolting specifications that require a heavy hex head – larger than a standard or finished hex head. These specifications include: A193, A320 and A307B. Although A325 and A490 bolts also require a heavy hex head, they refer to Structural Bolts for dimensional specifications, since structural bolts have shorter thread lengths than standard heavy hex bolts. 

Heavy Hex Bolts are used in a varity of OEM equipment and can be manufactured in multiple ASTM grades.

Sigma coated bolts have a two-layer structure of special pretreatment polymer film and under-treatment layer. Phosphate Pre-treatment technique insures the physical performance of product without changing and fluropolymer top coating results in a better performance in resisting chemical and seawater corrosion. SermaGard coating is different from PTFE because of their strong corrosion resistant ability. Xylan can be different per customers request to meet various environmental working conditions.

  • Xylan
  • SermaGard
  • PTFE
  • PTFE
  • Moly

Xyan combined with an advanced treatment technology; the film is thin but is excellent in corrosion resistance which prolongs the lifespan of the product.  Non-stick and low friction properties can make-up the torque coefficient which is easy to install and disassembling. Property of chemical & weather resistance make it suitable to various severe environments.

Xyaln and SermaGard coatings are the best choice in offshore, oilfield and petrochemical precision equipment against corrosion. Its properties are particularly suitable for surface corrosion prevention of underwater precision equipment including Christmas tree, BOP and pipelines and other parts.

Xylan coating properties:

Low friction ( as low as 0.055)

Remarkable adhesion

Unusual resistance to wear and abrasion

Excellent resistance to corrosion

Resistance to chipping

Resistance to the elements: weather, sunlight, salt water

Working temperature range from: -190 to + 260° C

Available in a wide range of colors
