Stainless nuts and bolts are among the most popular fasteners for a wide range of uses due to both physical and chemical properties. Located in Canton, MA, Electronic Fasteners has a wide selection of stainless steel fasteners that are well-suited for many applications.
Stainless nuts and bolts are chosen for many reasons. Some of these include:
- Corrosion resistance
- High-temperature tolerance
- High abrasion resistance
- Low maintenance
- Low manufacturing cost
Stainless fasteners are the preferred choice for high performance in extreme environments such as high temperatures, abrasion, and corrosion. There are also various types of stainless that depend on the amounts of various metals within the alloy.
Among the properties listed above, stainless nuts and bolts have self-repairing properties. The chromium oxide layer that develops on the surface provides corrosion resistance. If this thin layer is scratched, dented, or damaged in other ways that reveal the bare alloy, if exposed to oxygen, oxidation occurs and repairs the chromium oxide layer. Stainless steel is also resistant to hydrogen embrittlement, another property that makes it a metal of choice.
Stainless nuts and bolts also have a long lifespan due to their ability to resist heat, corrosion, and abrasion. They also are visually appealing wherever the fasteners might be able to be seen.
With all these great features, stainless nuts and bolts are readily available at Electronic Fasteners. When choosing fasteners for your next projects, contact the experts at Electronic Fasteners and we can help you identify the right product for your needs.
