For example, type 304 stain less steel bolt i ng has sur vived more than 20 years in a wood jetty just above t he t ida l zone. How ever, severe crevice corrosion caused fail- ures of the stainless steel bolting in the tidal zone. Alu minum bolting has performed well in a concrete bridge above the splash zone for more t han 20 years. In addition, alloy 400 bolt ing has provided in- definite service in wooden struc- t ures and steel pil ing in marine splash and spray environments.

(Bud) Ross at CORROSION 2000, paper no. 617, presented in Orlando, Florida, USA. The paper provides additional guidelines on the selection of marine fasteners and includes newer nickel-containing alloys, which offer im- proved marine corrosion resistance and higher strength.
