Huck Pin and Collars offer one of the most robust ways of ensuring your joints don't come loose in service, but are you looking for an opportunity to reduce your Huck spend?
We see Huck pins offered in many different plating options, the most common are zinc plated GA and GA2X code to 72 hours and 1,000 hours of corrosion resistance per ASTM B633. In many cases these pins are installed and then the entire assembly is painted, providing a barrier coating for the pins.
Field proposes reviewing your application to determine if a GA code can be used instead of the GAX2 or plain instead of the GA code. In many instances the barrier coating provided by the paint would offer similar corrosion resistance performance at the final assembly.
We are able to offer these coating alternatives at a significant savings to our customers. If you’d like to discuss this option further, please contact our team and we can review your applications with you and determine if it’s possible to change your Huck pin plating.
