Why Do We Need Specialty Fasteners?


Why Do We Need Specialty Fasteners?

A specialty fastener is a fastening system designed for a particular purpose or application that differs from your typical fastener. Their primary use is in critical applications that require safety and reliability. 

Fasteners with a specialty thread pattern are better suited to heavier-duty applications, such as welding, molding, stamping, assembly, and many others.

Custom fasteners come in various shapes, sizes, and materials to meet the demands of the application it will be used for. Manufacturers can also customize them according to customer requirements and specifications.

Common Examples of Specialty Fasteners

1.Shear pins

2.Twelve-point socket flange screws

3.Lock washers

4.Star drive screws

5.6-point specialty screws 

6.Trilobular screws

7.Self-threading screws

8.Electronic and automotive fasteners


Materials for Specialty Fasteners

A variety of materials are used to make specialty fasteners. In addition to their qualities, they have characteristics that make them ideal for a particular application or purpose. Materials such as:Stainless steel





Carbon steel



Nickel alloy


Exotic metals

Since stainless steel is highly resistant to corrosion, it's ideal for applications exposed to outdoor elements. Titanium, however, is often chosen for projects requiring a high strength-to-weight ratio.
