Hinges with BCOR surface protection

Special coating for extra protection

Hinges may be tucked away inside furniture, but they are still subject to external influences. Warm, damp air or vapours from chemical substances (e.g. cleaning agents or assembly aids such as silicon) can damage the surface finish of your fittings. That is why we have developed our own extra layer of protection to enhance the high quality materials we use. The special BCOR finish gives hinges improved surface protection.

Optimised corrosion protection

The new BCOR finish is a galvanic coating which forms a protective shield around the hinge. It ensures that the hinge is better protected against corrosion.

Stringent test requirements

BCOR has withstood rigorous testing, namely a 48-hour NSS (neutral salt spray) test and a 24-hour AASS (acetic acid salt spray) test as per DIN EN ISO 9227. Independent international testing organisations also confirm that BCOR provides sound corrosion protection.

Extended range

Many hinge models come in a standard and a special BCOR finish. You can opt for one finish or combine the two to produce the perfect solution to meet customers’ requirements and suit the application.
