Fiberglass Hex Nut


Most often used on machine screws and threaded rod, these general purpose nuts are for low-strength assemblies. Hex Nuts have flat tops with chamfered corners; bottoms may be flat or chamfered. Hex drive systems are driven with a wrench.

Nonconductive and resistant to many corrosives, Fiberglass is a good choice for applications threatened by salt water, oils, mild solvents, and other harsh environments. G-10 is a glass reinforced fiberglass, utilizing a continuous woven glass fabric laminated with an epoxy resin. The glass reinforcing increases tensile strength over non-reinforced fiberglass, G-10 in particular is rated at 38,000 psi (pounds per square inch range). G-10 exhibits a high tensile strength to weight ratio, approximately twice that of Aluminum 2024, for example. G-10 is very non-porous, and will only absorb 0.1% of water if left to soak for 24 hours. G-10 is flame retardant and will operate at temperatures up to 280 degrees without degrading. This material is recommended for applications where superior strength and excellent electrical insulative properties are required over a wide range of temperatures.

A threaded fastener's size name includes information about the major external diameter, followed by the threads per inch, which indicates if it is coarse or fine.



  • Hex Nuts are appropriate for use in low-strength assemblies
  • Fiberglass is suitable for applications where tensile strength to weight, non-conductivity and corrosion resistance are all important considerations
  • Drive system is a hexagon-shaped head
  • Ensure a lasting hold for any project
