ALLOY-60 Studs

Lightning Bolt is capable of manufacturing a wide range of Alloy-60 studs and Alloy-60 stud bolts.  It’s resistance to corrosion is sometimes compared to between that of 304 & 316 stainless steel.  However, this alloy is used favored in application (ie. Use in semiconductors) for having a yield strength nearly double that of commercial grade stainless steel, but also for their ability to be resistant to galling.  It is this inherent property that makes it favored by many that require anti-corrosion properties of stainless, but without the headache.

The additions of Silicon and Manganese have given this alloy a matrix to inhibit wear, galling, and fretting even in the annealed condition. Higher strengths are attainable through cold working the material and is still fully austenitic after severe cold-working. This working does not enhance the anti-galling properties as is normal for carbon steels and some stainless steels.  Alloy 60 stud bolts are made from threading bar, and then cutting and chamfering them to the customer’s desired lengths.

The benefit to the cold or hot work put into the material is added strength and hardness, and the wear resistance does not decrease noticeably. Chromium and Nickel additions give it comparable corrosion to 304 and 316 stainless steels, while having approximately twice the yield strength. The high mechanical strength in annealed parts permits use of reduced cross sections for weight, and cost reductions through the use of thinner stock.

Alloy 60 fasteners are also referred to as Nitronic 60 fasteners.
