AFGlobal Commences Engineered Bolting Business

HOUSTON, TX, October 22, 2018 — AFGlobal today announced that it is launching a new API certified fastener business to enhance the Company’s offshore and onshore production capabilities. This business is a natural extension of the Company’s established OEM position with drilling and production technologies.

The new offering will feature engineered bolting for offshore and onshore oil and gas applications. Backed by API Monogram (20E and 20F standards), these fasteners will be built to withstand harsh high pressure/high temperature (HP/HT) environments, improving the safety and reliability of critical surface and subsea applications.

AFGlobal will secure all three bolting specification levels, including the highest stringency level (BSL-3) for technical, quality and qualification criteria.
