What are the problems to be paid attention to when the fasteners of stainless steel materials are selected

Written by

In order to choose stainless steel fasteners with good quality, first of all, we should understand the common manufacturing materials of fasteners. There are many kinds of materials that can be used to make stainless steel fasteners. Among them, stainless steel is the most satisfactory material. Stainless steel fasteners are characterized by high surface quality, high working intensity, and excellent corrosion resistance, easy processing and welding.

Fasteners made of stainless steel can be used for electroplating or heat treatment. With the excellent performance of stainless steel, it can be completely recycled and reused.

In addition, if the fasteners are made of stainless steel material manufacturing, its application in all aspects of manufacturing, processing or have showed very obvious advantages, so although fasteners for stainless steel material manufacturing will have higher costs, but considering the use of stainless steel materials cycle is very long, so in the choice of fastener materials in the scheme, is still very cost-effective.

However, in the use of stainless steel fasteners, there are two problems to be paid attention to.

The first is the cost problem. When fasteners were made of stainless steel, they used to rely heavily on the use of nickel. However, the price of stainless steel fasteners has changed greatly as the price of nickel metal has increased worldwide. In order to alleviate the pressure of material cost and improve the competitiveness of stainless steel fastener products, some fastener manufacturers are looking for alternative materials in all kinds of stainless steel materials, and finally produce low nickel stainless steel fasteners.

One more problem is the magnetic problem. When making fasteners with stainless steel materials, it is necessary to understand the magnetic problem of the stainless steel itself. People usually think of stainless steel materials are not magnetic, but actually austenitic stainless steel by stainless steel processing technology, magnetic or produces weak, so not to have the quality as the standard to evaluate the magnetic properties of stainless steel fasteners.

Specifically, in the selection of stainless steel fasteners, stainless steel does not prove whether there is magnetic material quality, because there is no chromium manganese stainless steel with magnetic stainless steel, but it can not replace the Cr Mn stainless steel 300 series stainless steel is used, especially in the medium high corrosive environment is this.
