Fastener Fair Global 2023 was a great success for Dörken, which presented its new topcoat DELTA-PROTEKT® TC 502 GZ.

The German manufacturer of zinc flake systems for corrosion protection Dörken has expressed satisfaction for the outcome of the latest edition of Fastener Fair Global, the international trade fair dedicated to manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors and suppliers of fastening and fixing technology.

The event provided an excellent opportunity to talk about new as well as proven solutions and to exchange ideas with other professionals and experts, with almost 1,000 companies from the industry presenting their products, machines, tools and related services.

The company presented advanced technologies and innovations that make a significant contribution to the protection of surfaces and materials, such as the new topcoat DELTA-PROTEKT® TC 502 GZ: a hybrid solution with excellent friction coefficient properties for use on metric components that provides a very narrow friction coefficient window, is free of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and has a silver finish.

Furthermore, the experts from Dörken – including the Key Account Managers René Rother and Klaus Gradtke – hosted interesting discussions with visitors who were informed about the latest developments in the field of corrosion protection. In addition, the success story of the cooperation with Peiner Umformtechnik, a supplier of fasteners for wind turbines, also attracted the attention of the attendees. The company provided hot-dip galvanised bolt with an additional topcoat to keep the friction values stable regardless of weather conditions.

Finally, another big topic was the partnership with EJOT and WMV, that came together in search of a new coating option for micro screws. WMV was involved in this project as a specialist for surface coating plants, while DÖRKEN as a supplier of component-specific lacquer. Together, after years of work, they managed to develop an innovative coating process for small parts.

“We were very pleased to finally be back at Fastener Fair Global after four years. For us at DÖRKEN, the fair was exceptionally good. From the preparation to the last minute, everything worked flawlessly. But most important were all the interesting and insightful conversations we had with current and potentially new partners,” has declared Christos Tselebidis, the vice-president of sales for the Industrial Coatings division of Dörken.
