Steel Hex Nuts Galvanised
Steel Hexagonal Nuts
Finish = Galvanised
Gauge / Size Options:
The most common shape today is hexagonal, six sides give a good granularity of angles for a tool to approach from (good in tight spots), but more (and smaller) corners would be vulnerable to being rounded off.
It takes only one sixth of a rotation to obtain the next side of the hexagon and grip is optimal.
However, polygons with more than six sides do not give the requisite grip and polygons with fewer than six sides take more time to be given a complete rotation.
Galvanised is a Hot-dip or Spelter galvanised finish approximately 60 microns thick.
The product is dipped in molten zinc, resulting in a thick, rough coating that has a high corrision resistance.
