    An individual working in any industry that requires the use of fasteners for projects should be knowledgeable on different types of construction materials such as metric bolts and nuts. This helps avoid buying mistakes that can cost a serious amount of money.

    Nuts and bolts are graded with strength ratings, like an ISO property class 10 nut will be able to support the bolt proof strength load of an ISO property class 10.9 bolt without stripping. Likewise, an SAE class 5 nut can support the proof load of an SAE class 5 bolt, and so on. The proof strength of the most common property classes is listed at a bolted joint. Nuts and bolts are mostly hexagonal in shape as they give more strength and power through granularity of angles to a tool.

    Even the smallest tools and supplies play a huge role in the construction industry. Nuts and washers, for instance, are two small yet very important parts. These are forms of fastener bolts and function by securing the screws in place. Machines, furniture pieces, and other structures frequently exposed to vibrations need these fasteners. Without nuts and washers, the screws can come off and the machine will break apart. This can lead to grave damage to properties and even serious injuries.

    Nuts are oftentimes hexagonal in shape. Hex nuts are the most common types and are used in many general-purpose products. This fastener has a threaded hole in the center. Washers, on the other hand, are simpler types of fasteners. They are usually flat and are available in different shapes and sizes. Similar to nuts, they function by fastening screws and acting as spacers. Steel and plastic washers are the most used types. Steel types help prevent deterioration of two joint metal objects due to electrical contact. Plastic washers are common in valves and faucets.

    Hex nuts, usually known as finished full are used for fastening to a bolt when mechanically joining materials together. Hex nuts are mostly made from materials like brass, zinc plates, steel grade 8, stainless steel, silicon bronze, hot dipped galvanized and grade 2 chrome. Hot dipped galvanized and grade 2 chrome are most popular hex nuts because of being corrosion resistant. They are thick and are used mostly for exteriors and coastal areas. Whereas, the grade 2 chrome has a bright mirror like finish providing sharp looks for a variety of applications.
