Many fasteners, including stainless steel fasteners, can be used on applications exposed to high temperatures. There are some guidelines you need to follow when using fasteners on high-temperature applications to ensure longevity. Follow these tips to ensure the proper application of fasteners.

Use the right fastener

Certain fasteners are made from alloys that are specifically designed to deal with applications in high-temperature climates. You need to use these specific materials as other materials would not withstand high temperatures without getting damaged or causing damage to surrounding structures. Other fasteners will also result in corrosion or expansion – making it a potential safety hazard. Fasteners to prevent corrosion include alumina, zirconia, nickel alloys, stainless steel 309, and stainless steel 630.

Choose the right fastener for your temperature

Always ensure that your fasteners suit the environment that they will be operating in. The fastener not only needs to withstand the temperature of the climate around it but also handle the heat generated via machine use. It is therefore critical that you choose a fastener that can withstand high temperatures and settings. You can do this by assessing your maximum operating temperature.

Fasteners to suit high-temperature marine environments:

  • Stainless Steel 309 and 310: Ideal for high temperatures and extra corrosion in salty environments. 
  • Stainless Steel 630: One of the strongest and hardest alloy for high temperatures.
  • A-286: Can stand temperatures up to 1,300 Fahrenheit degrees.
  • Nickel: For temperatures up to 1,800 degrees.
