Manufactured from cast steel (Cast Steel) and “primer coated”

Navacqs Corner Castings are made of heavy cast steel. Thanks to this material, a Corner Casting has a tested breaking strength of 50T. The corner castings are provided with a special primer. This primer prevents the corner pieces from rusting. The primer has no effect on the quality of the weld, there is no need to remove it before welding. However, additional smoke formation can occur during welding. If desired, the primer can be ground away locally.

In addition to protecting the steel, the primer also ensures good adhesion for any other paint for finishing. It is immediately suitable for spraying in any desired color.
