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
- Chemistry and specifications of alloy 330
- Alloy 330 Torx screw features and benefits
Alloy 330 torx 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 torx 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 Torx Screws
- Alloy 330 torx 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 torx screws.
- Because of its resistance to nitrogen rich environments, alloy 330 torx screws are used extensively for components handling cracked ammonia.

Alloy 330 Screw Types: 12 Point Screws, Button Head Cap Screws, Flat Head Screws, Hex Head Cap Screws, Pan Head Screws, Set Screws, Socket Head Cap Screws, Tamper Resistant Security Screws, Torx Screws, Vented Screws
Alloy 330 Torx screws are characterized by a 6-point star-shaped pattern, also called a star drive, spined socket or hexalobular (ISO 10664). Where Phillips heads were designed to cause the driver to cam-out (prevent overtightening), Torx screws were designed resist cam-out. This feature allows alloy 330 Torx screws to provide increased torque as well as better torque transfer between driver and fasteners. This feature also helps to reduce wear on driver bits.
Alloy 330 Torx Screw Advantages
- Resistant to cam out (process by which a screwdriver slips out of the head)
- Alloy 330 Torx screws are more difficult to strip
- Increased tamper resistance as a star driver isn’t as common
- Driver insert is less susceptible to damage when over torqued than Allen head
Alloy 330 (UNS N08330) is best known for its extreme high temperature strength and stability. One of the most unique attributes of Alloy 330 is its ability to handle cyclic temperature changes from extreme high temperatures to cooling phases, as well as in oxidation-rich environements.
