RE: different metals

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You definitely have a potential for corrosion (pun unintentional).  If there
is an electrolyte such as rain present, the aluminum will be sacrificial to
the steel rods.  Is a non-metallic sleeve such as a thin-wall plastic tube
possible?  Or can you coat the rods below the nuts with something
non-conductive?  Even wrapping the rods with Teflon tape would help.

	I have a situation were I have a bracket with threaded rods that is
	which is being attached to a flag pole made of aluminum.  What can I
do to
	separate the steel threaded rod from the aluminum base of the flag
	There is a separation between the steel base and the aluminum but no
	separation between the threaded rods and the holes were the rods are

	Thanks in advance
