  • 1 min read
Captive 316SS (A4) Studs provide a strong, flush-head assembly in steel material as thin as .040 in. (1 mm).
The studs are made of 316 series (A4) stainless steel and provide superior corrosion resistance. For many applications the studs can also be installed in stainless panels with a standard shop press and provide high torque-out and pushout performance in materials with a Rockwell Hardness of B88 or less. This combination is ideal for use in food processing, medical and marine applications.
The studs are available in inch and metric sizes ranging from 4-40 to 5/16-18 and M3 to M8, and are passivated per ASTM A380 specifications.316 SS self-clinching nuts and standoffs are also available on special order.
