Durostone® fasteners have a very low thermal conductivity compared with steel, which means they can be used to prevent cold bridges in the construction sector, such as when mounting façades. All Durostone® grades have a thermal conductivity of 0.3 W/mK, putting them on a par with mineral wool, which is used as an insulating material in construction.
Durostone® fasteners in the field of hydraulic engineering and port construction
Durostone® fasteners are particularly resistant to corrosive salt water and are very UV and weather-resistant. They are used in hydraulic engineering and harbour construction applications such as sea water desalination plants.
Durostone® fasteners - galvanic operations
Durostone® fasteners - Our Durostone® fasteners are particularly resilient against aggressive media and gases, and therefore particularly suitable for use in galvanic operations.
Durostone® fasteners - Nacelle construction
With their high corrosion resistance and electrical properties, our Durostone® fastener offer a long service life, while their low density (between 1.9 and 2 g/cm³) makes it possible to save weight when building your nacelles.
Durostone® fasteners in the offshore sector
In offshore environments, oxidation of fasteners can rapidly happen, unless costly titanium or super duplex grades are used. An alternative to these are our Durostone® fasteners, which are not affected by oxidative degradation like steel. Durostone® fasteners offer high strength and are naturally corrosion resistant, as well as highly weather and chemical resistant, but also only weight approximately 75% less than an equivalent sized steel fastener.
Durostone® fasteners - high-voltage direct current transmission systems
Durostone® fasteners are electrically insulating and anti-magnetic. Some qualities are also part-discharge-free up to high electrical field strengths, particularity creep-resilient and flame-retardant. This will support the longevity of high-voltage direct current transmission systems.
