During winter service, vehicles and snow removal trucks are in action to spread salt along the road to prevent ice formation.
Most traffic signals on bypass roads and highways are connected to concrete by anchor bolts that are often HDG (hot dip galvanized coated). When winter vehicles work, snow is thrown towards the side of the roads and so is salt. Unprotected anchor bolts and nuts are submerged.
Salt is chloride and it dramatically accelerates corrosion, especially when the snow starts to melt. HDG proved not to be enough to protect the bolts against corrosion, and most of the bolt threads were severely damaged.
Bolt Armour's solution was to protect all bolts and nuts with BA F-PRO ALU. Prior to installation, corrosion inhibitor grease was generously and evenly applied to the bolts, further preserving them from corrosion.
Inspection after 1 year later showed no signs of corrosion.
