The term fastener is used to describe various types of hardware used to temporarily or permanently join objects. Fasteners are made from materials including steel, brass, stainless steel, nylon, and specialty metals and often have coatings to improve wear or corrosion resistance.

Types of fasteners include:

  • Bolts
  • Screws
  • Nuts
  • Rivets
  • Standoffs and spacers
  • Threaded inserts
  • Pins
  • Keystock
  • Washers

Military-grade and aerospace fasteners often have requirements for material and coating and must comply with specific industry standards.
