Why Should We Choose The Right Sizes of Custom Screws?


In the construction industry, the safety of bolted connections is generally underestimated. Choosing simple bolts/nuts as fasteners is an underestimation of its complexity. Common mistakes include choosing too large a bolt size, which will directly lead to costly repairs or accidents. It is also the same to other industries.
 

To Choose the Needed Screw Strength Grade

How many grades for screw strength?

There are many strength grades of screws, from 3.6 to 12.9, there are more than 10 grades. Grade 8.8 and above are high-strength bolts, and those below 8.8 are common bolts.

For example, for 8.8-grade bolts, 8 of which refers to the tensile strength of 800Mpa, and the remaining 0.8 is the yield ratio. The same goes for 10.9, 12.9, and so on.


Commonly, bolts with strength 4.8 are galvanized, so they appear shiny silver, while those with 8.8 are ordinary black (oxidized). We can easily distinguish them by their appearance.

So, the screw strength grades can be divided into many parts, including 2, 5, 8, 8.8, 10.9, 12.9, etc...
 

Choose the Correct Grade for Your Custom Screws


The correct screw grade can ensure that the screw meets the customer's requirements in actual applications. If the level is too low, it may cause quality accidents. Too high a level will affect product performance.

The most important thing is to strictly follow the above steps to choose. At the same time choose professional partners such as Kai-x, we have rich experience in exporting custom screws.
