Nord-Lock steel washers offer high salt-spray resistance and reliability

By Michelle Froese Corrosion is a growing concern across industries, and particularly the wind-power sector, where harsh conditions such as heat, humidity, and air pollution are combined. The Neutral Salt Spray Test (NSST according to ISO 9227) is one of the most established methods to verify corrosion resistance. Nord-Lock Group has officially raised the corrosion resistance on all of its steel wedge-locking washers and promises at least 1,000 hours in salt spray test, ensuring optimum performance over time — even in the most extreme environments.
Durable steel washers are required in harsh environments, and are ideal for use in offshore wind turbines.
“Extreme environments demand
