Stainless Steel Strength and Mechanical Properties


Loading Definitions - What is Loading and how is it defined?

How the stress that is applied to a part or parts is measured or defined is importnt to consider when choosing the right materials for your projects.

Tensile Loads of Stainless Steel Fasteners

Tables displaying the tensile loading of stainless steel fasteners relative to their metric or imperial thread size.

Tensile Strength Comparison Chart

Table showing the tensile strengths of different grades and classes of stainless steel in relation to other alloys and metals.

Tightening Torques

Recommended tightening torques for stainless steel fasteners by the thread type and size.

Yield Load of Stainless Steel Fasteners

Loading data relating to the point where the material has been stressed beyond its elastic limit and permenantly deformed.
