    There are a diverse range of stainless steel fasteners like stainless steel bolts and nuts offering different levels of corrosion resistance and strength. They are used for corrosive industrial and seawater environments, equipment, structural and architectural applications. These products can be used for all stainless steel designs and for joining other metals such as copper, aluminum, carbon steel, and zinc.

    When we mentioned about Industrial fasteners, especially those tools used in construction, they cover all sorts of screws, nuts and bolts (like stainless steel bolts , hex bolts , carriage bolts) pins and hinges. The bolts although fasteners can be customized to suit a certain need and design or application, but many construction companies will use the standard construction fasteners available in retail wholesale market due to its quality and cost. There are various types of bolts and nuts which include barrels, cap nuts, cage, coupling, crushed, cross dowel, inserts, internal wrenching, knurled nuts, lugs, panels, plates, flange, Hex Nuts, plate nuts, split nuts, weld nuts, staked, swage nuts, self-aligning nuts, Carriage Bolts.

    The most basic criteria to choose a right fastener are application, material, body design, diameter of fastener body, thread type and drive types. A clear illustration showing how a fastener being used in different application according to their different function and characteristic. A fastener used to join two wood beams is different from another fastener to tighten the steel threaded rods. Both are totally different application, if wrongly apply, accident might happens to the material being fastened.

    Din975 tell you the ASTM Standards:

    The ASTM International standards for fastener materials and specific products (bolts, hex nuts, screws, and studs) are provided in the following table. There are standards for both general use and for specialized high temperature, high pressure, and cryogenic applications.
