Invar Bolts, Screws, Nuts & Washers

Invar Fasteners are typically used in high performance applications that require a low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) and high dimensional stability. Invar is a Nickel-Iron based alloy that offers a range of properties depending on the grade and chemical composition. These fasteners are typically supplied in:

Invar 36:
Often referred to as Alloy 36, this alloy consists of 64% Iron and 36% Nickel. It provides a rate of thermal expansion approximately one-tenth that of Carbon Steel at temperatures up to 200°C, with an almost zero rate of thermal expansion at cryogenic temperatures as low as -150°C. Invar 36 also features high strength and toughness at cryogenic temperatures – ideal for a range of low temperature or low expansion applications e.g. structural components and precision instruments.

Super Invar:
Invar 32-5 or Alloy 32-5 is a magnetic alloy composed of 32% Nickel, 5% Cobalt and the balance Iron. Designed to provide minimum thermal expansion at ambient temperatures, Super Invar hosts thermal expansion properties less than that of Invar 36 when used between -55°C and 95°C. With a CTE approximately one-third that of regular Invar, these fasteners are regularly utilised for precision measuring devices where changes in dimensions due to thermal expansion should be minimal.

The major advantage of Invar is its ability to retain high strength and toughness at cryogenic temperatures.

It is typically used for low temperature and low expansion applications as a result, often within precision equipment such as thermostats and lasers where changes due to thermal expansion should be minimal.

Invar 42 contains 42% Nickel and has a slightly different coefficient of thermal expansion compared to regular Invar.

Super Invar, otherwise known as Invar 32-5, is composed with an additional 5% Cobalt and is designed to provide minimal thermal expansion at room temperatures.
