  1. Things to Know Before Using Stainless Steel Screws

    The ideal fastener is the stainless steel fastener because it is durable and performs well under most circumstances apart from being anti-rust and corrosion. The combination that they have of iron and alloy elements like chromium, nickel, molybdenum, and other molecules gives it a superior and long-lasting strength. It also improves iron to be resistant to rust and corrosion. Even with all these advantages of stainless steel screws in mind, one should be careful while choosing the kind of screw according to their requirement. Here are a few things that one must know before they use the stainless steel screws:

    1. Choosing The Right Grade

    There are a variety of different grades which have their own pros and cons. So, one should keep all of the kinds of grades in mind while picking one that they need. The most used grades are 304 and 316. If the environment

  2. Tips for Using Stainless Steel Bolts

    As a business that works with fasteners and enclosures, we do get some questions that are a bit difficult to handle. Because of the experience and expertise that our team holds in the field, some knowledge seems very obvious to us and it is hard to explain to a layman. So we penned down a list of tips and tricks for using stainless steel bolts that anyone can follow:

    1. Stainless steel bolts should not be used in a saltwater environment

    Saltwater causes materials to corrode and rust because of which their durability decreases and they don’t perform to their full potential. It is imperative to know which kind of metal should be used in what conditions. To prevent this, the correct grade of stainless steel bolts needs to be used. The most useful in saltwater conditions would be 316-grade stainless s

  3. How to Decide Between Bolts and Screws

    Planning for building your next construction project? We’d like to be a part of your pre-planning. If you allow us to guide you on material and fasteners you must use, we’d like to start by discussing the difference between screws and bolts. So, if we have your attention, let’s look at the basic difference between screws and bolts.



    A bolt is designed for insertion through holes in material parts and is intended to be tightened

    A screw can be inserted into holes in assembled parts, forming its thread.

    They generally have a uniform cross-section.

    They have a non-uniform cross-section.

    They are always used with nuts.

  4. 7 Ways to Prevent Fastener Galling & How does it Help

    Except for engineers and people who deal with fastener bolts daily, not many would know about ‘Galling’. One may know about it only after his experience of an expensive machine breaking down because of galling. But you might question here, “Is galling a serious issue?” Well, to be straightforward, it poses threat to the safety and quality of your machines which may hamper the speed of the production. Hence, it becomes crucial for everyone that is involved in the production, operation, and procurement to know about fastener bolt galling. 

    Galling happens during the process of sliding or installation. Due to a combined effect of friction and adhesion of metallic surfaces, fasteners are prone to galling. This further increases as the excess of lump forms when material from one surface gets attached to another.

    Additionally, it is important to be aware that once a fastener seized up from galling, it is impossible to remove and the only solution you will have is to cut

  5. 15 Popular Fastener Finishing Treatments

    The new demand in the industry is for stronger and durable and aesthetically sound products. A small thing such as a fastener is no exception to this. Hence, these days, fasteners come with decorative finishing. This serves the additional function of reducing vulnerability to corrosion. In this article, we have listed 15 fastener finishes that are in high demand and their methodologies.

    These methods and types depend on the application of the fastener. In some cases, they are subjected to high stress and temperatures like in automobiles. In others, they are cleaned regularly, like in food industries.

    1. Anodizing: A little knowledge of chemistry will tell you that this method involves electrolytic passivation.
