If you do a search on the general fastener type (like socket cap screws) it will list the coated fasteners available. A search on "ultra-coat" doesn't seem to pull them up.

It is a coating, doesn't look like it would polish for more shine. I "think" it is the same stuff developed a few years ago by 21st century coatings for the Navy, but I have not been able to confirm it.

Found them. I am not able to find them in allen head configuration. Do you know iff they exist (grade 8, ultra coated)?

Grade 8 in hex head, but not socket head (ie allen). I don't think the "grade 8" spec applies to socket heads?? Socket head ultra coated are on page 2924, 180,000 psi steel should be better than a grade 8 equivalent spec.
