Need of the hour- Affordable Safety

Technology is improving by leaps and bounds on an hourly basis.What was impossible yesterday is possible today. We have numerous safety products bringing almost absolute safety to our manpower machines, equipment and environment. Still we are struggling to control incidents and accidents. Incidents that bring enormous damage to our environment and families shattered by injuries and deaths of loved ones..our coworkers by profession.


Safety protection


One factor that is very deterrent to the safety industry is high pricing in terms of brand name, in terms of quality, in terms of marketing and in terms of profiteering. We as a part of the safety industry believe that safety products should be correctly priced. as at times companies avoid safety because they can’t afford it. Quality has always scope for improvement though after certain parameters are met it suffices the minimum need of the industry to which you are serving.

By adding glamour to the product in terms of look or feel. You are adding a cost which is unproductive and will always remain a cost for the product. Different approval bodies have been charging an exceptionally high fees in terms of approvals which is also a major contributor to the cost of safety products.

We have serious reservations to overpricing a safety product When we look at our industry-Flange spray protectors. our fellow industry stalwarts have priced Flange shields starting at USD 20. just to meet the marketing budget of displaying there products at so called glamour events. We sincerely believe that overpricing is a serious deterrent to safety. 

We are selling Flange guards starting from USD 3.5 and are exporting to more then 10 Countries at present. The reason of pricing a Flange shield very reasonably is because we believe in safety for all of our coworkers. This is the demand of the industry. We have very reasonable amount of marketing budget parked as this is simply an added cost to the product.

We need to realise that every dollar we add to the flange shield is making safety unaffordable for someone. The use of technology in safety should be to make it affordable for all. We are vendors to some of the top most companies of the world and they have evaluation system and quality procedures. 

We believe if a Flange spray guard has been supplied and accepted by few top companies around the world it is reasonably acceptable.We are not willing to be the best..we are willing to be affordable...to all..

What is the most commonly used material for nuts and bolts?

Be it construction or any other major industry the role of nuts and bolts and other types of fasteners are critical. Thus they determine the overall strength and structure of the largest structures.  So in case you happen to have your business in the manufacturing or construction sector we are sure that you would be interested to know what the commonly used materials for nuts and bolts are. So let us understand the different types of materials used. The different types of fastener materials used Fasteners are made with   a wide variety of  of material s . These include everything from common steel to titanium, plastic and other exotic materials. Some of these materials are again separated into different grades. This is done to describe specific alloy mixtures, hardening as well as processes involved.  Apart from this some nuts and bolts are available with a variety of coatings or platings.   This is done to increase the resistance against corrosion or alter the appearan

Properties of HSFG Bolts

Bolts are extensively used as a fastener. They serve various purposes and there may be various types of bolts. We at  Indiana Steel  being in the steel business since long and are involved in the manufacture and supply of various kinds of fasteners includes bolts. Of the various types of bolts which are in use the HSFG bolts are widely used. These are on account of the properties they have. In this blog we will explain to you what they are and their properties and benefits of using them.   HSFG bolts what they are? How they are made? High Strength Friction Grip Bolts are popularly known are HSFG bolts. They are made from bars of medium carbon steel. These bolts have great strength. Their high strength is built through the process of quenching and tempering.  This process is also known as alloying steel. Steel washers of hard steel or carburized steel are provided to evenly distribute the clamping pressure on the bolted member and to prevent the threaded portion of t

Flange and Valve wrapping tape system - Biggest Drawback

Flange and Valve wrapping by a tape system is a real bad idea. Why? 1. This tape system needs a lot of preparation time. 2. Installation involves skilled labor from the manufacturer. 3. Once a Flange is sealed Maintenance cannot be done. - Biggest drawback. 4. Cannot be reused. 5. Too much work in form of removing the packing and tape -After a Flange leak 6. High cost associated in terms of preparation, supervision and material . 7. Installation for large number of flanges will take months. Any solution that seals the flange and is not reusable is a failure. We need to understand that flanges joints are subject to failures : 1. Gasket failure - Mechanical deterioration with time, over tightening, temperature and  2. Fastening system failure - Bolting is subject to vibrations,stress and fatigue. 3. Alignment-Improper alignment of both faces of flange often leads to a Flange failure. Solution  Flange spray safety shields are the best soluti
