There are many different types of materials used to manufacture fasteners. Some of the most common include stainless steel, alloy steel, chrome, brass, aluminum, and brass. Here at Imperial Fasteners, we specialize in stainless steel fasteners for a variety of industries including the boat building and marine fabrication industries. Below are a few reasons why stainless steel fasteners are always a top choice:
- It is Corrosion-Resistant
Stainless steel is naturally corrosion-resistant, thus making it an ideal selection to use in water-related applications. Thanks to its corrosion-resistant properties, it is a long-lasting material and provides excellent value for money.
- It is Strong
When choosing fasteners, one of the main characteristics that you’ll be looking for is appropriate strength. Strength means that the fastener is sure to remain durable for longer. The good news is that stainless steel is one of the strongest materials available when it comes to fasteners. It is also reliable when it comes to withstanding all kinds of extreme temperatures, both high and low.
- It is Affordable
Despite ensuring a high quality, stainless steel is relatively inexpensive. You’ll often find that many other types of fasteners can prove to be more expensive than the stainless steel variety.
- It is Low Maintenance
Seeing as though it is superior when it comes to strength, and that it offers protection against corrosion, stainless steel requires very little maintenance. It is also resistant to scratches and is really easy to clean.
- It is Non-Magnetic
While each stainless steel alloy will feature a different level of magnetism, the Austenitic (304, 316, 316L) stainless steels are non-magnetic.
