YELLOX is free from chromium(VI) and therefore environment-friendlier than standard yellow zinc coating – both during manufacture and in use. Despite this, it’s also more resistant to corrosion than the conventional bright or yellow zinc coatings used for screws. YELLOX is an innovation that benefits the environment and the user.
