Corrosion Resistance Classes
The Australian Standard for fastener performance
(AS3566) was introduced in 1988, amended in 1990 and ratified in 2002. It currently lists four classes of corrosion resistance.
Class 1 For general interior use where corrosion resistance is of minor importance
Class 2 For general interior use where significant levels of condensation occur
Class 3 For general exterior applications including treated timbers (not suitable for external coastal regions)
Class 4 For external use in marine and moderately severe corrosive environments, generally within 1km from marine surf, although topography and/or strong prevailing winds may extend this distance
