Fasteners are a type of hardware that are able to mechanically join two or more components together. Usually, a protective coating is applied to them, in order to prevent corrosion, extend their durability and allow them to be easily fastened and unfastened when it is necessary. They are used for providing mobility and security, while supporting essential joints in very diverse applications in different sectors, from automotive, marine, railway and aircraft manufacturing to the construction industry.
Industrial fasteners suppliers in Dubai provide a variety of products, such as bolts, sets, studs, cap screws, sockets, hex keys, nuts, self locking nuts, blind rivet nuts, brass inserts, threaded rods, structural fasteners, screws, machine screws, U-bolts, masonry anchors, bonded seals, O-rings, self drilling screws, pins, rivets, washers, set screws, tapping screws, spacers and pillars, as well as sheet metal, security, micro-diameter, spring steel, stainless steel, construction, welding, specialty, precision and marine fasteners, among others. Some of the components are available in different sizes, depending on the application they are needed for.
When selecting the most suitable industrial fasteners, the material they are made of plays the most important role, as making a wrong choice can affect the quality and durability of the joint formed with the specific fasteners. Other factors, such as the environmental conditions they are exposed to, the presence of corrosive elements in their proximity, the physical stress they will be exposed to, their mechanical properties and the overall stability of the structure they are used for, should also be taken into consideration before deciding to purchase specific types. Most of them are made of aluminum, brass, various grades of steel or stainless steel and are suitable for a wide range of applications. Titanium is also used for producing fasteners, but due to the higher costs implied, it is used only in a narrow range of fields that usually require higher resistance to saltwater, chlorides, acid solutions or very high temperatures, together with increased strength.
