This product is a consolidation of two distinct products, which are described as hexagon head cap screws and finished hexagon bolts. Each category is recognized by national and world standards. Bolts may be ordered according to ASTM, IFI, DIN or others as may be pertinent to customer requirements. Unification of type may indicate products to North American specifications where as British or Japanese standards may alter description or specifications. The top of the head should be full formed and chamfered or rounded with the diameter of the chamfer circle being equal to the maximum witch across flats, within a tolerance of minus 15%. Wrenching height is a distance measured from the bearing surface up to the side of the head at the corners. The width across corners shall be within specific limits for the full wrenching height. Thickness of the washer face should not be less than 0.015 inches nor greater than 0.025 for screw sizes of ¾ inch and smaller and not less than 0.015 or greater than 0.035 for sizes larger than ¾". The body diameter on full-length threaded screws under the head shall not be less than the specified pith diameter of the thread. The point should be chamfered or rounded at the manufacturers option at a distance of 0.016" below the minor diameter of the thread. Chemical and mechanical properties of steel screws normally conform to grades 2, 5 or 8 of SAE J429, ASTM A 449 or ASTM A 354 where specified. Screws may be made from brass, bronze, any of several corrosion resistant steels such as stainless steel, Aluminum alloy or other materials. Various coatings may be applied that include, but may not be limited to zinc, phosphate, dry oxide, ruspert or they may even be hot dipped galvanized, depending on their final end use.
Like other fasteners, nails come in every imaginable shape and size. Most often, nails are used in applications where joining something to wood. However, special use nails that include concrete nails are also available. From the smallest finishing nail to the biggest spikes, nails have not changed in their popularity since the first one was made as far back as 3400 BC. In modern times, nails have evolved to have a wider range of uses that include roofing, drywall, concrete, panel, brads, spirals, common, and box nails. Typically nails are sharp at one end and pointed at the other though headless nails are also available. Most often nails are machine made using wire, but may also be forged or cut for special applications. Body shape will be important, and may include a twisted shank, smooth shank, barbed shank or fluted shank depending on what the nail is intended to fasten. Most often nails are made of carbon steel, but aluminum and stainless are other materials commonly used for making nails.
Nuts are internally threaded fasteners for use with externally threaded bolts or screws as a means of tightening one part to the other.Nuts can be supplied in a wide range of types and sizes, which may be referred to as nominal size. The nominal size is the designation used for the purpose of general identification.Nuts will be measured for the thickness, which is the overall distance from the top of the nut to the bearing surface, measured parallel to the axis of the nut.In order for a nut to fit properly on an externally threaded fastener such as a bolt, the thread of the nut must match exactly that of the thread on the bolt. If not, the nut will not be able to be turned on or tightened. Nuts may have a fine thread or a coarse thread as designated by the customer requirements.Nuts may be supplied in nominal sizes ranging from ¼" to 4" or in the metric equivalent sizes that are outlined in Din specifications.As is the case with any other fastener, nuts may be made using various materials, though carbon steel is common. Depending on application, nuts may also be supplied in stainless steel or brass as well.Nuts may be zinc plated or hot dipped galvanized, though care needs to be taken to ensure that the coating does not change the nominal size of the nut and thus affect its ability to be threaded onto a bolt or other externally threaded fastener.Nuts may be supplied separately or together with their matching externally threaded fasteners.
Poultry netting, chicken wire or hexagonal wire mesh as it is called cover a category of product that is as diverse in it's possible applications as in the wide range of sizes it can be made in. It can be supplied in widths from as small as 12' (30.48CM) to as wide as 2 meters or 6.5 feet.
