Sea faring ships and equipment all have corrosion and sealing issues that Van Cor Threads can address. Structural bolts are stretched. The reason why and how much would be re-address with the Van Cor Threads because these threads are not tighten to compress. They are tightened to all surfaces engaged. They can be designed for a fixed compression length in a process of more surfaces engaging as the load increases. The question is will as much force be needed with a threading system that does not require stressing the threads along their axis to be useful. Will this leave more reserve capacity for with standing tensile load?
