Buildex® roof and cladding fasteners and the Climaseal® coating process has been proven to stand the test of time in Australia’s harsh marine environment, providing superior corrosion protection. Buildex® pioneered the use of real world outdoor exposure testing for coatings development in 1994 and has continually developed and improved the performance of its coatings, providing superior corrosion protection.
Buildex® Corrosion Warranty
The Buildex® corrosion warranty gives you peace of mind against screw damage, roof failure and expensive call backs.
Superior Screw and Cladding Compatibility
The Climaseal® coating system ensures superior compatibility between fastener coating and roof sheet which helps ensure the fastener does not cause corrosion of the roof, so you avoid expensive rectification costs.
Help prevent under roof corrosion
Under roof corrosion of roofing screws is the great hidden danger. With the Buildex® Shankguard® feature it minimises the coating removed from the screw during installation, ensuring maximum protection from corrosion. The Shankguard enlarges the hole making it larger than the screw shank following behind so that the protective coating is not scraped off when passing through the roof profile.
The Climaseal Coating process also ensures even coating over the thread for greater structural integrity.
Climaseal Coatings Offer Superior Corrosion Protection
These are cross sectional views of the Buildex® Climaseal 5 coating and a competitor coating in the market claiming suitability for Category 5 environments.The Climaseal coating process goes through strict quality control so that superior corrosion protection is achieved on every batch of fasteners. It is made up of a compact even base coat and a top coat for added corrosion protection. The top coat also provides excellent UV resistance which helps protect the coating from breaking down on the screw when exposed to sunlight.
Extensive Real World Testing
Buildex® pioneered the use of real world outdoor exposure testing for coatings development in 1994 and has continually developed and improved the performance of its coatings, providing superior corrosion protection. Constant extensive real world testing sets us apart from competitors.
A Real World Case Study
Due to unusual circumstances, a roof was completed with a combination of Buildex® and competitor fasteners. On later inspection it was found that the competitor’s fasteners had clearly corroded while the Buildex® fasteners showed no visible signs of corrosion in the same conditions.
