Strong and corrosion resistant, KD Fasteners, Inc.’s Inconel Nylon 725 lock nuts are an excellent choice for seawater applications.
In fact, Inconel 725 hex nuts are twice the strength of Inconel 625 thanks to its heat treatment. Made with nickel, chromium, molybdenum, and niobium, Inconel 725 is an age-hardenable alloy that has essentially the same corrosion resistance as Inconel 625. Importantly, Inconel 725 is resistant to hydrogen embrittlement and stress-corrosion cracking as well as being incredibly tough.
