Collection: Low Outgassing Polymer Screws, Nuts, Bolts, Washers, and Fasteners

What Are Low Outgassing Fasteners?

Low outgassing screws, nuts, bolts, and washers are fasteners that are made from materials that have a low rate of outgassing, or the release of gases into the surrounding environment. They are used in a variety of applications where outgassing is a concern, such as in environments where vacuum conditions are present.

Why Are Low Outgassing Fasteners Necessary?

Outgassing can be a concern in certain applications because the release of gases into the environment can affect the performance of equipment or the surrounding environment. For example, in the aerospace industry, outgassing can cause contamination of optical systems or interfere with the performance of sensors, and in vacuum environments, outgassing can cause the pressure to increase, which can affect the performance of equipment or processes.

Low Outgassing Fastener Materials, Applications And Other Properties

  • Materials

    There are a variety of materials that can be used to make low outgassing fasteners, including stainless steel, titanium, and certain types of plastic or polymer. These materials are chosen for their low outgassing properties, which means that they have a low rate of releasing gases into the environment.

  • Applications

    Low outgassing fasteners are used in a variety of applications where outgassing is a concern, such as in the construction of aerospace and defense equipment or in the assembly of electronic components. They may also be used in the manufacture of electrical insulation materials or in the installation of electrical systems.

  • Other Required Properties

    Low outgassing polymer screws have other beneficial properties, such as corrosion resistance and good mechanical properties. They can help to improve the performance and reliability of equipment and systems in environments where outgassing is a concern, and they can help to prevent contamination or interference caused by the release of gases.
