316 STAINLESS STEEL HEX HEAD CAP SCREWS

Also See ASTM F593.
GOVERNING STANDARDS:
UNS S31600  Specifies the material required for use in manufacture.
ASME B18.2.1 Covers the complete general and dimensional data for multiple types of inch series square and hex bolts and screws.
ASME B1.1 UNC & UNF Class 2A Specifies the thread form, series, class, allowance, tolerance, and designation for unified screw threads.

 

APPLICATIONS:

Common stainless steel fastener for general use in harsh atmospheric conditions and some corrosive environments. 316 stainless steel has higher corrosion resistance than 18-8 stainless steel due to a higher Molybdenum content. 316 stainless steel fasteners are commonly used in applications that require general atmospheric corrosion resistance, such as chemical and food processing equipment. Some chemical environments may require special corrosion resistant materials and precautions.
