I am not sure if the bolt is dry film lubed. The clear chromate bolt
is not corroding, and the gold colored chromate nut is corroding. They
are exposed to a severe marine environment, and I thought the gold was
supposed to be a better finish than the clear. Strange.
Chromate coatings normally are green or yellowish green. Moly-disulfide
solid film lubrication is charcoal grey. It may or may not have cadmium
under it. I would not even bother with a coated bolt in a "severe marine
environment." You always damage the coating by installing it. I suggest
stainless steel or bronze.
