Abstract: To ensure the durability of fixing elements besides an appropriate design, the use of suitable materials must be considered. Due to economical reasons it is necessary to choose the material, which meets the specific needs of each application best. According to general experience increasing corrosive potentials of specific environments require materials of higher resistance to these conditions. This is normally associated with higher costs.
According to increasing corrosion resistance, appropriate corrosion protection comprises zinc-based coatings for unalloyed steels, stainless steels and highly corrosion resistant special alloys.
Comparative results of laboratory as well as outdoor exposure tests are presented and the application of these materials in approved fixing elements is discussed.
