IMPROVEMENT OF THE CORROSION RESISTANCE OF HEICO-LOCK® STAINLESS STEEL WEDGE LOCK WASHERS

An optimization of internal processes had considerably increased the corrosion resistance of HEICO-LOCK® Wedge Lock Washers made from stainless steel which withstood over 1,200 hours in the neutral salt spray tests according to DIN EN ISO 9227. Coating systems with a corrosion resistance of over 1,000 hours are also available on request for HEICO-LOCK® Wedge Lock Washers made from steel.

ST. PETER'S BELL IS RINGING AGAIN! HEICO-TEC® TENSION NUT is on THE NEW CLAPPER SUSPENSION

On All Saints' Day in 2018, St. Peter's Bell rang once again after almost 18 months of silence!
