Marine Grade Fasteners SS 316 A4

What are marine grade fasteners?

Marine grade fasteners refer to fasteners that have been designed specifically for the marine industry. In other words, they are entirely weather/corrosion resistant. A salt water (marine) environment is a difficult one for metals because of corrosion. On any ship, boat, or oil rig part of the hull or structure remains under water in use, while another portion is above, creating different “zones”, and different corrosion resisting solutions. Most SS fasteners do not stand up to the corrosive properties of saltwater environments. It requires a special grade of SS 316
