WIROX coating of these spax 4.5 x 30mm woodscrews offers 10 times higher corrosion protection in the neutral salt-spray fog test than is required by standard for conventional yellow zinc coating, and has considerably higher surface hardness.
Ideal for outdoor use in structures such as e.g. carports or pergolas, which are not directly exposed to the elements.
The WIROX coating is free from chromium-VI, so environmentally friendly
