Hydrogen Embrittlement of Fasteners
Have you ever experienced a broken screw in one of your products? Unexpected failures of fasteners cause damages and high costs. One of the top reasons is hydrogen embrittlement.
Also known as hydrogen attack, hydrogen embrittlement is a process where the metal becomes brittle or fractures over the exposure of and diffusion of hydrogen through the metal. As you can imagine, hydrogen embrittlement is a very serious matter and can pose monumental problems to your product if overlooked. Fortunately, the team at Bossard Can help.
