The Red Head Brass Commitment to
Quality and Safety in Aluminum Adapters
All aluminum adapters are not created equal. The Red Head Brass quality advantage is built into every aluminum adapter we sell. Look for the following features:
All Red Head aluminum adapters are hardcoat anodized per MIL-A-8625 Type III, Class 1. No dye or coloring is used. This process provides the completed part with a hardened surface that resists corrosion, abrasion, and reduces electrolysis. It also prevents excessive wear on the threads. Complies with NFPA 1963, 4.12 Corrosion Resistance.
NO PLAIN ANODIZE, PAINTED OR POWDER COATED FINISHES!!
