316 Stainless Steel Hex Head Cap Screw Advantages
UNS S31600 stainless steel hex head cap screws provide a variety of benefits to numerous industrial applications throughout the world. Since AMS 5524 manufactured 316 stainless steel hex head cap screws contain 3% molybdenum they have increased corrosion resistance and elevated temperature strength compared with fasteners produced with 304 stainless steel. Additional advantages that ASTM A666 hex head cap screws provide include:
- Good corrosion resistance
- Increased strength at elevated temperatures
- Improved pitting resistance
- Readily formed and drawn
Type 316 Stainless Steel Hex Head Cap Screw Applications
Advanced quality 316 stainless steel hex head cap screws are general purpose threaded fasteners that provide numerous benefits for insertion of pre-tapped holes or use with nuts. The industries that utilize ASTM A666 grade stainless steel hex head cap screws include:
- Architectural applications in severe settings
- Polluted marine environments
- Sub-zero climates
- Chemical equipment
- Food and beverage
- Oil and petroleum
316 Stainless Steel Hex Cap Screw Thread Options
AMS 5524 stainless steel is used primarily for long lasting applications, due to its corrosion-resistant nature and durability. Scratching or burring the metal will not create surface rust as the corrosion resistance exists within the metal itself. At Fastener Solutions, we offer two different types of 316 stainless steel threads for your hex cap screw needs:
- UNC – Unified Coarse
- UNF – Unified Fine
