Know the difference between stainless steel screws and carbon steel screws?

Stainless steel screws and carbon steel screws are common screw fasteners, and they are also the number of screw fasteners. We all know that stainless steel screws and carbon steel screws have their own characteristics. Do you know the difference between stainless steel screws and carbon steel screws? That's the difference.





1. Carbon steel screws are not specially added with alloy steel elements, but stainless steel screws are added with high alloy steel content to prevent rust.

2. Stainless steel screws are far more expensive than carbon steel screws. This is mainly because the price of stainless steel materials is higher than that of carbon steel materials, and because the performance of stainless steel materials is better than that of carbon steel, the price of a commodity is not unreasonable.

3. The two kinds of screws are not the same, there is no good or bad. Carbon steel screws are usually stronger than stainless steel screws, but they are easy to rust.

4. Stainless steel screws and carbon steel screws are made of different materials. They are made of stainless steel and carbon steel, and stainless steel is divided into austenitic stainless steel, ferritic stainless steel, martensitic stainless steel, precipitation hardening stainless steel, and carbon steel. It is divided into three types: low carbon steel, medium carbon steel screws and high carbon steel screws.

5. The use environment of stainless steel screw and carbon steel screw is different. Compared with carbon steel screw, stainless steel screw has much higher corrosion resistance and other characteristics. Therefore, we often see stainless steel materials in some medical equipment and food equipment. Carbon steel has poor corrosion resistance, and screws will rust and die over time. Stainless steel screws are better.

Screw is indispensable in daily life and industrial production and manufacturing, and screw is also known as the rice of industry. As can be seen, the use of screws is widespread. The application range of screws is: electronic products, mechanical products, digital products, electrical equipment, and electromechanical products. Screws are also used in ships, vehicles, hydraulic engineering and even chemical experiments. Anyway, there are a lot of places where screws need to be used.

Such as precision screws used in digital products. Micro screws used in DVD, cameras, glasses, clocks, electronic products, etc.; general screws for televisions, electrical products, musical instruments, furniture, etc. As for large screws and nuts for engineering, construction and bridges; transportation equipment, aircraft, trams, automobiles, etc. are all large and small screws. Screws play an important role in industry. As long as industry exists on earth, the role of the screw will always be important.
