Finish & Grade Options for Our Bolt FastenersThe bolts Fastco distributes come with various finish and grade options. Each coating and material offers unique advantages, including corrosion resistance and enhanced strength.
Finishes & Coatings
Galvanized: Hot-dipped galvanized bolts carry exceptional strength and corrosion resistance. The galvanizing process allows for the thickest possible coating of zinc to be applied to the fastener, resulting in added protection and durability.
Plain: Plain bolts have no special coatings or plating other than an oil finish to increase lubricity. The fastener material determines the level of corrosion resistance and strength. Plain bolts should be used indoors or in environments where corrosion protection is unnecessary.
Zinc: Zinc plating provides good corrosion resistance, enhanced strength, and added lubricity for bolts. The zinc plating will corrode before the base metal, serving as a sacrificial layer of corrosion resistance for the fastener.
18-8 Stainless Steel: Also known as 304 stainless steel, 18-8 stainless steel bolts have high strength and good corrosion resistance. Comprised of 18% chromium and 8% nickel, 18-8 stainless steel bolts are versatile and utilized in numerous applications.
316 Stainless Steel: 316 stainless steel is characterized by its 2-3% molybdenum content. The molybdenum provides 316 stainless steel bolts with resistance to corrosion and pitting, helping retain strength at elevated temperatures.
- Grade 2 bolts: Good strength (57,000 psi), usually manufactured from low or medium carbon steel
- Grade 5 bolts: Increased strength (74,000 psi), made from medium carbon steel
- Grade 8 bolts: Extremely strong (130,000 psi), made from medium carbon alloy steel
Common Applications for Industrial-Grade BoltsEach bolt style has unique design elements, making them ideal for various applications.
Hex head bolts are the most common style of bolts, used extensively across all industries. Typical applications include:
Hex Head Bolt Applications
- Interior and exterior home applications
A325 & A490 Structural Bolt ApplicationsStructural bolts are heavy bolts manufactured for use in construction applications. Common applications include:
- Building construction
- Highway construction projects
- Steel-to-steel structures
Carriage Bolt ApplicationsCarriage bolts are designed for applications that require a rounded, smoother surface for the bolt head, either for practical functionality or aesthetic reasons. Applications for carriage bolts include:
- Wood structures (walking bridges, cabins, sheds, etc.)
- Agricultural structures
Lag Bolt ApplicationsLag bolts are used for wood construction projects, including:
- Fastening wood-to-wood
- Wood-to-metal structures
- Wood-to-cement or masonry
- Load-bearing wood applications
Tension Control Bolt ApplicationsTension control bolts are ideal for high-strength applications, including:
- Steel frame construction
- Steel-to-steel applications
