40 Nitronic bolts are made from a ferrous alloy known as XM-19. This versatile material has the strength and corrosion resistance of stainless steel. It is mixed with nickel, chromium, manganese and nitrogen to create an exceptionally low-cost bolt for various applications. Its impressive strength-to-weight ratio makes it ideal for projects that require lightweight yet durable fasteners, like structural hardware or industrial machinery components. In addition to excellent tensile strength, Nitronic 40 bolts are highly resistant to stresses imposed by vibrations, thermal cycles or cryogenic temperatures, making them one of the most dependable and economical fastening solutions available today.
Nitronic 40 bolts are an excellent choice when it comes to fasteners. They offer superior corrosion resistance and have excellent atmospheric corrosion resistance in polluted atmospheres, making them ideal for applications that require strength and high performance, like the aerospace industry. Additionally, they are 15-20% stronger than stainless steel 316 bolts and will not undergo stress corrosion cracking even at temperatures higher than 550 degrees Celsius. They also have excellent tensile strength and offer a ductility rating of around 30%, making them perfect for manufacturing processes that need robust, reliable bolting components. Finally, these bolts are available in various sizes and lengths to best suit each application.
