Intercorp Introduces Strong-Shield Coated Self-Drilling Screws for Maximum Corrosion Protection

ORANGE, CA -- Intercorp., an importer and master distributor of high-performance construction fasteners under the Strong-Point® brand, is pleased to announce their Strong-Shield® coated, corrosion resistant, self-drilling screws. These proprietary Strong-Shield coated products are about 50% less expensive than stainless steel fasteners and offer more than 40 times as much corrosion resistance as zinc.

“These new coated fasteners will attach metal to metal in roofing, siding, carports, patios, mezzanines, framing and more,” said Law Winchester, National Sales Manager. “They have a four-layer protective barrier that prolongs the life of the fastener. It consists of a metallic zinc layer, a hex-chromium passivation layer, a functional nano-coating layer and a high-grade anti-corrosion chemical conversion film. With this kind of corrosion protection, distributors and construction professionals alike will benefit from this product offering.”

These Strong-Shield coated products are ideal for coastal and other regions where corrosion is a concern. They offer a high degree of corrosion resistance which includes exceeding 1,000/hrs. of salt spray resistance, 15 cycles of Kesternich for rust/acid rain protection, and ACQ compatibility.

With locations in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta, Portland, Houston, Cleveland, and Miami, Intercorp is strategically located to ship any of these Strong-Shield coated fasteners today. Call 800-762-2004 to find out more.

All American Systems (www.allamericansystems.com)  is celebrating 22 years in business this year and has three outside salesmen and one part-time inside sales assistant.  They focus on standard and engineered special fasteners and metal components while working with distributors and their OEM customers to develop best practices for fastener installation, part development and supply chain solutions.

KDS Imports (www.kdsimports.com) has been in business for 28 years operating as a mill-importer of standard and special fasteners in various materials for distributors and cold heading manufacturers exclusively.  They have recently moved to a larger location in Elgin allowing them the capacity to continue their growth.  For more information or to contact KDS, please call (888) 537-6455 or write us at sales@kdsimports.com.
