Glendale Heights, IL, March 15, 2024 — Fast-Rite International, a pioneer in providing innovative solutions for industrial fasteners and metal products, proudly introduces Rite-Shield™, a revolutionary Multi-Layer DIP Spin coating engineered to combat corrosion in outdoor environments.

One of Rite-Shield’s™ remarkable features is its capability to address a WIDE RANGE OF COEFFICIENTS OF FRICTION, providing tailored solutions for diverse applications. Its consistent performance even under elevated temperatures ensures reliable protection against corrosion.  To enhance UV protection, Fast-Rite offers an additional proprietary top coat, which further protects against environmental conditions.
