Stainless Steel 310S Fasteners

Types of 310S Fasteners

Stainless steel 310 grade is a carbon-containing austenitic stainless steel. Besides carbon, the material consists of another element such as Chromium and Nickel. These two elements make fasteners highly resistant to corrosion and oxidation processes. Various types of 310S fasteners can work in an environment containing the presence of reducing agents such as hydrogen, sulphur,…

Duplex Stainless Steel

Importance Feature of Duplex Stainless Steel

Duplex stainless steel is ferritic-austenitic steels which contain high levels of chromium and nitrogen. These materials make them highly resistant to localized and uniform corrosion. Duplex stainless steel offers excellent resistance against crevice and pitting corrosion. It has adequate strength and weldability. This type of stainless steel has low thermal expansion which makes them the…

Different Grades of Stainless Steel Fasteners Explained

For improved corrosion characteristics, stainless steel is an alloy of low carbon steel and chromium. Stainless steel is for the price, highly corrosion resistant. As the anti-corrosive properties of the metal are intrinsic, if scratched during installation or use, it will not lose this resistance. That stainless steel is stronger than standard steel is a…

What Are the Varying Grades of Stainless Steel Fasteners?

Stainless steel is a low carbon steel and chromium content but offers high corrosion resistance. Stainless steel, because of its stability, strength and anti-corrosive and high heat properties, is one of the most popular materials used for fasteners. A flexible, economical alloy benefits from the combination of steel strength with its superior anti-corrosion and heat-resistance…

What is ASTM A312 Stainless Steel?

Overview ASTM A312 is an American Standard specification which covers seamless, straight-seam welded, and heavily cold worked welded austenitic stainless steel pipe intended for high-temperature and general corrosive service. The most common grades are 304/304L Stainless Steel and 316/316L Stainless Steel .In this article, we illustrate the chemical and mechanical properties of the A312 specifications.…

What’s The Difference between 304 and 316 Stainless Steel?

When choosing stainless steel that must withstand corrosive environments, austenitic stainless steel is typically used. Austenitic Stainless Steel has excellent mechanical properties, the high amounts of nickel and chromium in austenitic stainless steels also provide outstanding corrosion resistance. Additionally, many austenitic stainless steels are formable and easily weldable. SS 304 and SS 316 are the…
