Our product range includes ultra-high strength stainless steel fasteners with good ductility.
Ultra-high strength fasteners
We can deliver stainless steel fasteners ranging from strength class 8.8 to 16.9 for applications where downsizing, clamping force and strength are critical. Our products offer a unique combination of strength and good ductility. BUMAX Stainless steel fasteners are also resistant against hydrogen embrittlement.
Benefits of high strength fasteners:
- Opportunities to downsize the fastener or reduce the number of fasteners with maintained clamp load.
- Weight savings.
- Compact design and smaller screw joints. Ability to withstand higher static or dynamic stresses.
- Greater safety.
- Higher resistance against relaxation.
The table below shows properties for screws and bolts in as delivered condition.
