    Nuts are designed and manufactured to greater strengths than the bolts they are coupled with. You can use a nut designed with greater strength than the bolt, but substituting a weaker nut and stronger bolt results in fastener failure.

    All of our nut products are manufactured by sources that all have ISO9001 and/or TS16949 certifications as well as approval from other accredited laboratories. Supplying quality products on time is our specialty.

    Hex nuts are required for most fastening purposes and designed for hassle free installation. Though the hex nut design seems basic they are created to deliver high end efficiency and performance.

    When stainless steel is not an option due to the application or budget, hex nuts are commonly given an electro-deposited zinc plated finish which gives it a different look and feel.

    In short its reliability and stability increases when such coatings are given, it also ensures in increased life of the nut. This coating protects the nut from rusting and corrosion that might take place due to change in external environments.

    Hex nuts are six sided general purpose nut with internal screw threads. Hex nuts are one of the most common hexagonal fastener with internal threads that screws on to the shank of a hex head cap screw or other bolts. Hex jam nuts, heavy hex nuts, and lock nuts are just a few types of hex nuts we carry.
