What is the potential of fastener market in India?
ROOFING Fasteners is a very big market in India. Majority of the companies cater to the bottom of the pyramid of the market with Zinc Coated Fasteners. The Product life cycle is low and starts to rust there by risking the Major items of the METAL ROOF.
Poor Quality of Fasteners lead to Early Roof Failure, Leakages and Rusting challenges.
ROOFIX Fasteners are manufactured and packed in Taiwan. The product is made strictly as per the Australian Standard AS 3566 – 2002. The product uses TRUE Blue EPDM washers of DEKS Industries.
What technology is being adopted by the company, that gives it the edge much needed at present time?
The coating of RUST Shield is very Quality Coating used to protect the steel against Corrosion. The Screws are MECHANICALLY Plated and then E- Coating is done on the screws. The Porosity of Coating is thick as it has to protect the steel against Corrosion.
The Screws are fitted with True Blue EPDM Washers made by DEKS Industries Australia. Which prevents Galvanic cell corrosion caused by disimiliar metals and electro-chemical corrosion is decreased because of the use of low carbon EPDM seals which stops the potential difference circuit.
The coatings are 45 microns thick consisting of a Mechanical Plating plus E-Coating (compatible with zincalume) This is 8 times thicker than standard screw coatings so will last 8 times longer.
The “Edge Guard” feature allows the screw to pass through the profile not allowing the coating to be scraped off. This increases anti-corrosion performance by 60%.
Top Grip locks the profile between the head and under the seal stopping water entry.
