FINALLY: a press fastener you can truly rely on
Hardly anybody realizes that press fasteners used in the tough conditions like marine applications are not even resistant to sea water - until now! Probably the smallest item on deck is now available in real 316 stainless steel: CAF-316®. To achieve true durability, even the internal spring is made of top quality duplex stainless steel, insuring years of dependable performance regardless of the conditions.
As true reliability drills down to every detail, CAF-316 uses spring technology that avoids galvanic corrosion or electrolysis, while ensures a similar and stable spring performance as one is used to and should expect. In detail, the CAF-spring material has a complex crystal structure (austenitic and ferritic) to make it even harder, more elastic and better corrosion resistant than regular stainless steel (304 and 316). Good to know, this crystal structure has one known side effect of causing magnetism. All products are tailored for their use and application, using screw-threads designed for their purpose. And above all, full sea water resistant. Accept no compromise.
