Stainless Thread galling, sometimes called “cold welding”. Usually happens when Stainless bolts and Stainless nuts are used together, lots of reasons, just best to avoid it. ALL our stainless threaded components come with zinc plated steel or chrome plated steel hardware. For bolts where nuts do not show we use zinc plate steel, where they do show we use Chrome plated.
Avoid Nylox as they increase the problem.
Always use lubrication or Anti-seize on Stainless regardless of what type hardware.
Avoid using power when tightening All Stainless as speed causes more heat increasing likelihood of galling.
