Types of Hex Nuts

Home / News / Industry News / Types of Hex Nuts
A Hex Nut is a bolt that has a threaded hole and is typically used to hold two or more parts together. Nuts are often used with a mating bolt. The threaded hole allows the nut to pass through mating bolts without breaking or becoming loose. There are many different kinds of nuts. Each one serves a different purpose and is useful in different situations. Here's an overview of common types and their uses:
Hex nuts are available in a variety of sizes and materials. They come in metric and imperial dimensions, and are also classified according to their materials and thread profiles. Some of the most common sizes are 1/4-inch, 5/8-inch, and 1-1/4-inch. They can be ordered by size, metric, or by application.
Hex nuts are commonly used in applications where corrosion is a concern. Stainless steel hex nuts are often used in applications where they are exposed to moisture and salt. 316 stainless steel hex nuts are stronger and more resistant to corrosion, and can handle higher temperatures than their non-stainless counterparts.
The most common type of hex nut is the type I. This type comes in three different grades: grade I, grade B, and grade C. A grade I hex nut is commonly used in high-precision applications.
