Tensile Strength Comparison Chart

Tensile Strength is the maximum tension applied as loading that a fastener can support prior to (or coincidental with) its fracture.

Stainless steel fasteners can be made to different grades which relate to properties such as corrosion resistance and also different strength classes. These classes can be identified by their head markings such as on stainless steel bolts.
