Announcement of the Intech Services Authorized Fastener Coater Program

Published June 4, 2014
At Intech Services, the importance of properly engineered and applied coating system is a high priority.  In an effort to provide industry competent sources to apply corrosion one coat products, Intech Services established the Intech Services Authorized Fastener Coater program, which is approved by DuPont Fluoropolymer Solutions.  This program gives fastener users the assurance of a quality job performed by the coater. Intech Services is the sole distributor of DuPont™ Teflon® industrial coating in the U.S. and Canada.
Chris Dohl, Vice President at Intech Services, says, “Product Stewardship is extremely important to any coating that is honored enough to carry the DuPont™ Teflon® brand.  An authorized fastener coater network is the only way to ensure that our new fastener coating line is being applied correctly.  This will enable the end-user to be confident that they will get the performance that they have come to expect from any of the DuPont™ Teflon® Finishes.”
The Intech Services Authorized Fastener Program requires the individual coating shops to meet a strict list of standards and testing requirements proving their ability to apply the coating in a way that maximizes the coatings’ performance.  Specifically, the coater must demonstrate process and quality testing for coating and/or plating processes and have the proper equipment to apply and test the coating. 
The coater must submit panels with one mil of 857G-018 applied over phosphate and under go and pass the following tests:  1000 hours of salt spray per ASTM B117, cross hatch adhesion testing to ensure proper substrate adhesion, MEK rub test to ensure proper curing, and appearance test.  Passing these tests demonstrates the coater is able to apply the fastener coatings to withstand the environments they are engineered to.  The coaters must agree to allow Intech Services to randomly audit their coating process.
