B7 bolts are threaded studs and are commonly used with H2 nuts. They can be produced in a variety of dimensions and pack configurations. MW stocks standard sizes for fast and easy delivery and offers multiple options for product customizations, including added finishes.
Our B7 studs are commonly coated with fluoropolymer. B7 studs and nuts coated with a fluoropolymer finish are considered superior due to their many added performance properties. They are easier to remove after prolonged exposure to corrosive environments since they are produced without the use of nut locking oxides. This feature ensures excellent corrosion resistance, making them perfect for use in irrigation, chemical plants, refineries, and similar environments where corrosion is a concern.
B7 Studs Overview
B7 bolts and studs are commonly requested due to their performance properties, including high tensile strength and superior heat resistance. When specialty coatings like fluoropolymer finishes are added, their performance in corrosive environments is also significantly enhanced.
Custom B7 Studs
Our facilities specialize in custom component production, meaning we offer a variety of specialty finishes and materials as well as a selection of optional manufacturing services. Some of these services include design, tooling, CAD modeling, and various secondary machining processes.

B7 Studs Manufacturing
There is a particular manufacturing process associated with the production of B7 bolts to help them achieve the high level of performance that we’ve come to expect. This process includes heat-treating the material, chromium-molybdenum alloy steel, to 1150 degrees Fahrenheit and may involve adding a protective coating for added performance in extreme environmental conditions.
B7 studs are produced from chromium molybdenum steel; however, if you require a stud, bolt, or coordinating nut from an alternate material, contact us for custom quote information.
