Hex Bolts are also know as hex cap screws or machine bolts. They are very common for construction or repair work. They are available in a large variety of lengths and diameters. Hex bolts are made from a range of materials and material grades to cover the abundance of applications for which they're used. The best method for selecting a hex cap screw is to choose the material which best suits your application. Each hex bolt material has unique properties to suit different needs. Some of the most common hex bolts include:
- Stainless steel bolt—common, popular choice because they don't require any coating and are corrosion resistant.
- Carbon steel bolt—the most common hex bolts, zinc plated for added corrosion resistance.
- Alloy steel bolt—made to withstand enormous amounts of pressure per square inch, coating with either cadmium or zinc plating to protect against corrosion.
Hex bolts are available in standard thread length and fully threaded varieties. Applications include exterior, automotive, marine, coastal, and high temperature areas. Whether you need a fully threaded stainless steel bolt, a standard thread alloy steel bolt, or anything in between, Bolt Products has the hex cap screws to meet your requirements.
