Roof fasteners

The roofs of steel buildings are fully exposed to the elements, so special precautions must be taken to prevent rust. The most common cause of rust in metal roofs is the screw. Although the finish (Galvalume coating or paint) protects the exposed surface of the panels, the screws penetrate this painted surface and make direct metal-to-metal contact. If the screws do not seal properly or develop rust themselves, they will cause the panels to rust.

**PVDF coating (polyvinylidene fluoride) or Kynar® coating is a pure thermoplastic fluoropolymer that is non-reactive and possesses multiple coating benefits. Kynar coating is a chemical resistant, thick film barrier coating primarily used on chemical processing equipment due to it's low weight and low thermal conductivity. This coating is unaffected by most chemicals and solvents, and has excellent wear and abrasion resistance. PVDF coatings are especially resistant to solvents, acids and heat, and has low density compared to similar fluoropolymers. Kynar PVDF coatings also have a high dielectric strength, excellent resistance to weathering elements in harsh environments. Along with the ability to self extinguish, PVDF generates little smoke in the event of a fire.
