There are many metal materials that can be used to make fasteners. Stainless steel fasteners not only have better appearance and better physical strength, but also have advantages such as corrosion resistance, easy welding and manufacturing.
Stainless steel fasteners can also be treated with electroplating or heat treatment to get better product performance, and the waste can be recycled and reused completely.
The use of fasteners made of stainless steel production, whether in manufacturing, application and processing have very big advantage, so although stainless steel fasteners due to its material cost and the cost is high, but because of its relatively long cycle life, so in all kinds of materials selection of fasteners, is still a cost-effective.
When stainless steel is used as raw material, fasteners are heavily dependent on the addition of nickel. However, the price of stainless steel fasteners is also greatly affected by the high price of nickel. Stainless steel fasteners manufacturers, in order to reduce cost pressure and enhance the price competitiveness of fasteners, have searched for alternative materials, and successfully produced low nickel stainless steel fasteners, so that the price of such fasteners is more close to the people.
If the fastener is made of stainless steel as the main material, it is necessary to clarify the magnetic problem of the stainless steel. Stainless steel is usually considered to be non-magnetic, but in fact, after austenitic stainless steel is partly processed, it may still produce weak magnetism. Therefore, it is inaccurate to distinguish the quality of stainless steel fasteners with or without magnetism.
When selecting stainless steel fasteners, whether the stainless steel material is magnetic can not explain the quality of the products, because some chrome manganese stainless steel is also non magnetic stainless steel. Stainless steel fasteners, such as chromium, manganese and stainless steel, can not replace the application of the 300 series stainless steel, especially in high corrosive medium, and the quality of stainless steel fastener is better.
