Standard Products Now Available with 1,000 Hour-Salt-Spray Rating to Guard Against Corrosion
|PDF file of this page|
|Any standard valve in the HydraForce lineup can now be ordered with the same corrosion protection as the HyPerformance™ line of valves. Based on the success of the 1,000-hour salt-spray protective coating in the high pressure market, HydraForce is now making it available on standard hydraulic cartridge valves, to help guard them against corrosion as well.|
HydraForce HyPerformance™ valves have a 1,000 hour salt-spray rating thanks to a proprietary zinc-nickel plating with a clear coat that can withstand 1,000 hours of salt spray before rusting. This protective coating effectively guards the valve from corrosion and has proven to be highly successful in applications where high pressure hydraulics are used, especially in demanding outdoor operations where equipment is exposed to dirt, moisture, and extremes of temperature.
The 1,000-hour salt-spray protective coating is also ideal for any standard valves used in marine applications, humid climates, or equipment operating outdoors in all weather.
The HydraForce 1,000-Hour Salt-Spray Rating SpecificationThe salt-spray test is a standardized test method used to check corrosion resistance. HydraForce conducts its salt-spray testing according to ASTM Standard B117. The more corrosion resistant the coating, the longer the period in testing without showing signs of corrosion. The HydraForce protective coating is a proprietary plating with a clear coat that has been proven to guard against corrosion with the ability to withstand 1,000-hours of salt-spray testing without showing signs of red rust.
NOTE: Some "A" style adjustment options may not be available on "G"-coated standard valves.
— It is not neccesary to add the "G" prefix to HyPerformance valves.
