Fasteners are made from a variety of materials, but it’s essential to choose a material type that best suits your project.
Here are some of the most commonly used fastener materials.
- Steel fasteners
They exist in four different types which include low carbon steel, medium carbon steel, alloy, and stainless steel.
- Titanium fasteners
Titanium is a top choice due to its high strength and resistance to corrosion.
- Aluminum fasteners
Aluminum is relatively affordable and has a lower strength, thus enabling it to be used in lightweight materials.
