MiTek’s exclusive Gold Coat finish is a multi-layer system that protects the integrity of the structural connector. 

Stop relying on traditional corrosion protection, and start trusting MiTek’s® exclusive Gold CoatTM finish:

  • Double layer corrosion protection

  • Twice the protection for extended life
  • Visually appealing gold color
  • Available in anchors, hangers, framing angles, straps, fasteners

While traditional corrosion protection is a barrier layer of zinc that temporarily protects steel, it is ultimately eaten away by copper, leaving the steel to be aggressively attacked. Outside factors such as moisture (especially wet/dry cycles), acid rain and chemicals, all serve to accelerate this attack on the steel.

MiTek’s exclusive Gold Coat finish is a multi-layer system that protects the integrity of the structural connector. The top layer is a specially formulated organic polymer barrier designed for outdoor applications and contact with treated wood. Gold coat’s attractive color is an ideal choice for decks, pergola’s and other outdoor projects.

Gold Coat is engineered to protect structural connectors and fasteners from corrosive environments. The unique approach of pre-coating the galvanized steel prior to manufacturing yields a superior product that is cost-effective and has maximum durability throughout manufacturing, shipping, and installation.

In addition to Gold Coat, MiTek also offers G90 Galvanizing, Triple-Zinc Galvanizing, Hot-Dip Galvanized, and Stainless Steel as corrosion resistant finishes to cover a range of corrosion performance.
