Alloy steel fasteners comprise various metals, such as chromium, nickel, molybdenum, and manganese. These components make the pins particularly robust and resistant to corrosion and abrasion. Depending on the specific application requirements and environmental conditions, different alloying elements may be added to increase strength further or introduce additional desirable properties. Forging, quenching, and tempering are often employed to enhance the mechanical behaviour of alloy steel fasteners. Fasteners made from this type of material are highly sought after for a variety of industries that require reliable performance from equipment components under hard-wearing conditions.
Alloy steel fasteners are a popular choice for construction due to their durability and range of uses. The most common form is AISI (American Iron and Steel Institute) 4340 alloy steel, also known as "aircraft quality" steel. This particular alloy steel provides excellent strength and hardness, being able to withstand extremely high temperatures without losing its structure or material properties. It also remains ductile even when used in hygroscopic environments. These fasteners offer superior corrosion resistance, making it possible for them to be used outdoors and underwater for long periods. In addition, its tensile properties make it suitable for vibration-sensitive applications such as engines, pumps, and boilers. Alloy staff fasteners make an excellent choice for almost any construction project.
