When your project involves harsh environments, KD Fasteners, Inc.’s 316 stainless steel heavy hex bolts are your answer.
Our 316 stainless steel heavy hex bolts give better corrosion resistance when compared to 300 series stainless steel. These bolts can withstand corrosion when submerged in fresh water, salt water, chloride and other chemicals such as sulfuric, phosphoric and acetic acids.
316 stainless steel contains more nickel than 304 stainless steel and molybdenum has been added with the following resulting properties.
- Corrosion resistance
- High strength
- Good creep resistance while exposed to subzero temperatures
- Low carbon content to avoid carbide precipitation in welding applications
Our 316 stainless steel heavy hex bolts are typically used in the marine industry because of their greater pitting corrosion. This material also does well in polluted marine environments with subzero temperatures.
Other industries that use 316 stainless steel heavy hex bolts include:
