An engineered high temperature resistant steel
- Excellent high temperature stability and strength
- Very oxidation and carburization resistant to 2100°F
- Good resistance to thermal shock and quenching
- Alloy 330 button head cap screw features and benefits
Alloy 330 button head cap screws are specifically designed for high temperature furnace applications such as vacuum furnaces, heat treating and brazing applications. The most prized trait of alloy 330 is its ability perform under cyclic conditions of temperature extremes from heating and cooling; as well as in alternate carburizing and oxidizing atmospheres. An austenitic, nickel-chromium-iron-silicon alloy, 330 button head cap screws also offer industry a low coefficient of expansion, excellent ductility, and high strength.
Benefits & Corrosion Resistance
- Resistance to thermal shock from repeated quenching
- High level of resistance to oxidation and carburization
- Ability to handle thermal cycling
- Provides resistance to scale formation up to about 2000°F
- Good resistance to nitrogen-containing atmospheres where the oxygen content is low
- High nickel content of 34-37% provides high resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking and embrittlement
Applications for Alloy 330 Button Head Cap Screws
- Alloy 330 screws are often used in furnaces, thermal processing and heat treating applications.
- Gas turbine components and boiler fixtures used in power generation often use Alloy 330 button head cap screws.
- Because of its resistance to nitrogen rich environments, alloy 330 screws are used extensively for components handling cracked ammonia.

Alloy 330 button head cap screws combine the similar shape of a pan head with the driver of a socket head. The socket driver is ideal for low clearance applications that require a large area clamping face. Compared to a standard socket head cap screw, alloy 330 button heads have a lower and wider profile. This can be useful when the clamping material is too thin to counter-bore.
- Wide bearing surface for clamping
- Low profile head
