Hydrogen Embrittlement Policy Statement
THB requires our platers and suppliers of plated fasteners to bake qualified case hardened products to appropriate industry specifications. However this process and no plating process will guarantee that hydrogen embrittlement will not be present after baking or that it will not occur at a later date. Special testing or a substitute part may be required to reduce the probability of hydrogen embrittlement depending on the application.
