What Is a Non-Ferrous Fastener?
Non-ferrous fasteners are nuts and bolts, as well as screws and other accessories, that do not contain any iron. There are multiple benefits to non-ferrous fasteners for many different industries, most notably marine construction or any structures exposed to the elements. These benefits include:
- Stain Resistance: Non-ferrous fasteners tend to resist staining much better than ferrous fasteners, which makes them more suitable for cosmetic applications.
- Corrosion and Rust Resistance: Due to the absence of iron in the metal, non-ferrous fasteners are resistant to both corrosion and rust. This resistance improves the durability and reliability of the fasteners.
- Heat Resistance: Non-ferrous fasteners have high heat resistance, which makes them suitable for use in applications exposed to high heat, such as food preparation.
- Aesthetically Appealing: Due to its resistance to stains, corrosion, and rust, non-ferrous fasteners are often used for cosmetic applications due to their sleek look.
Silicon Bronze and Brass Fasteners
Seattle Nut & Bolt carries a variety of silicon bronze and brass fasteners for use in a wide range of industries, most notably power and utilities as well as the marine industry. Additionally, silicon bronze and brass fasteners are useful in marine environments such as brackish water and seawater. In these situations, the brass takes on a green protective coating called patina. Some of the properties of silicon bronze and brass fasteners include:
- High thermal conductivity
- Largely non-magnetic
- Aesthetically pleasing, especially with wood applications
Nylon fasteners are useful in situations where metal fasteners aren’t advisable. For example, nylon fasteners are also valuable for electronics manufacturing. Additionally, nylon fasteners are often used during the production of fire-resistant products because nylon doesn’t burn; it melts. Nylon fasteners aren’t suitable for all industries, however. It absorbs water and lacks UV resistance, and it’s not as durable as other materials.
The knowledgeable team at Seattle Nut & Bolt can go over available nylon fasteners and the pros and cons of each type. There are a variety of threaded nylon fasteners available, which may prove useful when other non-ferrous fasteners are not suitable. We have experience serving a wide variety of industry professionals. Contact us today for a custom quote on your next order of nylon fasteners!
