Stainless Steel Fasteners: Safe and Secure

The safety, performance and reliability of any engineered system is only as good as the fasteners that hold everything together. Here at BS Stainless, we stock an extensive array of fasteners that are guaranteed to be of the same consistent, excellent quality as all of the other stainless steel materials that we supply.

Our collection of stainless steel fasteners includes rivets, toggles, screws and nuts & bolts. In this edition of the BS Stainless blog, we will be showcasing a number of our bestselling stainless steel fasteners.

Multinox G-Grip Lock Bolts

Perfect for a multitude of different applications which call for a consistent flush pin break to the collar and a wide grip range, Multinox stainless steel lock bolts offer an efficient and cost-effective solution. Available in various sizes, the product is able to provide like-for-like replacement for up to 14 different sizes of the standard six-groove locking fastener system.

More robust than screws or rivet joints, Multinox lock bolts help to immediately solve vibration issues. Sometimes referred to as a 'pintail', the components can be quickly installed by just one person, giving reliably-identical installed values. Primarily produced using Grade 304 stainless steel, they can also be supplied in Grade 316 with the option of aesthetically-attractive bright-polished heads.

Waterproof Closed Cup Rivets

The first product of its kind to be guaranteed 100% waterproof, our closed cup stainless steel rivets are made using a combination of Grade 316 stainless steel for the body and Grade 318L duplex stainless steel for the mandrel. Water ingress is a particular problem in offshore applications, where it can cause crevice corrosion and lead to system failure, necessitating costly repair/­replacement and associated downtime.

Each rivet incorporates an equally-unique washer/gasket made from hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber (HNBR). This material is superior to other commonly-used materials like EPDM, Neoprene and NBT in many ways: it can operate at much higher temperatures, it has exceptional resistance to abrasion and is also resistant to dilute acids, oils and sour gases. Check out our specially-made video on YouTube to see just how well these rivets perform.
