Stainless steel 348 nuts contain the chemical element boron (B16). This form of pressure-retaining steel restricts hostile corrosion from going deeper into the nut surface and also minimizes stress corrosion cracking that can occur under certain temperature ranges or solubility. Thanks to this key chemical alloying element, 348 stainless steel nuts can be exposed to higher temperatures than standard steels, and they often don’t require additional coatings such as passivation to retain their strength in most environments. Additionally, when welded together, these nuts remain particularly resistant to mechanical stress and are extremely durable.

Stainless steel 348 nuts were first developed in the late 19th century and, over the decades, have become an important staple material for construction applications and repairs. They are incredibly strong and resistant to corrosion and rust, which makes them ideal for use in active environments such as coastal areas and areas of extreme temperatures. This variety of stainless steel nuts is an excellent choice for industrial, chemical, food processing and automotive companies due to its superior strength when compared to other metals. In addition, these nuts can resist oxidation under heat up to 1500°F, allowing for efficient welding with no fear of contamination or degradation of the metal’s structural integrity. Their unique properties make them beneficial in a wide range of applications where longevity and strength are essential specs.

FAQ's for Stainless Steel 348 Nuts

A stainless steel 348 nut is a fastener that consists of various materials in a stainless steel alloy and is designed to secure two or more components together.

Stainless steel 348 nuts are typically used in industrial, automotive and marine applications due to their strength and corrosion resistance.

To install stainless steel 348 nuts, use the appropriate tools for the specific application. Generally, it involves torqueing or threading the nut into place with a wrench or pliers.
