Focus on M10 Titanium Bolts

Embarking on the exploration of M10 Titanium Bolts unveils a realm of precision engineering and versatility. In this comprehensive guide, we delve into the intricacies of various types of M10 Titanium Bolts, unravelling their unique features, applications, and the unparalleled advantages they bring to the world of fastening solutions. This guide aims to be your compass in navigating the diverse landscape of M10 Titanium Bolts. Join us on this journey where precision meets strength, and innovation meets reliability. 

 

Measurement

Let’s start by looking at the system of bolt specification because it provides detailed information about the dimensions of a bolt.

We will use an "M10x1.25x30" bolt as an example:

  1. M10: Diameter

   - The "M" indicates that it is a metric bolt.

   - The number "10" represents the nominal diameter of the bolt in mm. In this case, the bolt has a diameter of 10 mm.

  1. 1.25: Pitch

   - The number after "x" denotes the pitch of the bolt's threads, which is the distance between the threads measured in millimetres (mm). In this example, the pitch is 1.25 mm, indicating that the threads are spaced 1.25 mm apart.

  1. 30: Length

   - The last number represents the length of the bolt, measured from the tip to the bottom of the head. In this case, the bolt is 30 mm long.

In summary:

- M10: Metric bolt with a diameter of 10mm.

- 1.25: Thread pitch of 1.25mm (distance between threads).

- 30: Length of the bolt is 30mm.

Please note: Countersunk bolts are the exception to the above because the length measurement includes the head. That means, for example, an M10x1.25x30 countersunk bolt measures 30mm from one end to the other.

This specification system ensures a standardised way of communicating the key dimensions and features of bolts, making it easier for engineers, technicians, manufacturers, and enthusiasts to select the right bolt for his or her specific application.

 

Head Type

RSR Moto supplies titanium bolts in the following head types

  1. Titanium M10 Hex Flange Head Bolts

titanium m10 hex flange bolts

Identifiable by their hexagonal-shaped heads featuring an integrated flange at the base, these bolts offer distinctive advantages. The integrated flange serves to enhance support and stability during the fastening process, providing a larger surface area that evenly distributes the load. This, in turn, minimises the likelihood of the bolt loosening over time, making them exceptionally well-suited for applications demanding robust durability and reliability. The extended contact area offered by the flange not only enhances resistance to vibration but also acts as a protective barrier, preventing water ingress and reducing the risk of corrosion. The hexagonal head design means easy tightening and loosening, adding to the overall efficiency of these bolts.

RSR Moto’s titanium M10 hex flange bolts are available in the following sizes:

M10x1.25x20, M10x1.25x25, M10x1.25x30, M10x1.25x35, M10x1.25x40, M10x1.25x45, M10x1.25x50, M10x1.25x55, M10x1.25x60, M10x1.25x65, M10x1.25x70, M10x1.25x75, M10x1.25x80, M10x1.25x85, M10x1.25x90

M10x1.5x20, M10x1.5x25, M10x1.5x30, M10x1.5x35, M10x1.5x40, M10x1.5x45, M10x1.5x50, M10x1.5x55, M10x1.5x60, M10x1.5x65, M10x1.5x70, M10x1.5x75 

  1. Titanium M10 Cap Head Bolts

Our M10 cap socket head bolts are recognised by their cylindrical head shape housing a hexagonal socket.  This configuration makes them highly suitable for use in confined spaces.

These bolts are easy to tighten using an Allen key, and also present a neat and tidy appearance due to their minimal head size.

Our titanium M10 cap head bolts are available in the following sizes:

M10x1.25x20, M10x1.25x25, M10x1.25x30, M10x1.25x35, M10x1.25x40, M10x1.25x45, M10x1.25x50, M10x1.25x55, M10x1.25x60, M10x1.25x65, M10x1.25x70

  1. Titanium M10 Drilled Head Hex Flange Head Bolts

These bolts deviate from typical hex flange bolts by featuring strategically drilled holes in the head. These perforations allow the passage of wire, which is then fastened to another component, ensuring the bolt remains securely in place and doesn't come loose.

Commonly employed in racing bikes and embraced by track day enthusiasts, drilled head bolts have also found favour among street riders who appreciate their distinctive appearance compared to standard hex flange bolts. The drilled design not only serves a functional purpose but also adds a unique aesthetic touch that appeals to riders seeking a customised look for their motorcycle.

Our titanium M10 drilled head hex flange bolts are available in the following sizes:

M10x1.25x20, M10x1.25x25, M10x1.25x30, M10x1.25x35, M10x1.25x40, M10x1.25x45, M10x1.25x50, M10x1.25x55, M10x1.25x60, M10x1.25x65, M10x1.25x70

  1. Titanium M10 Tapered Head Bolts

A tapered head bolt, also known as a conical head bolt, features a head that gradually narrows or tapers towards the end. The shape of the head is aesthetically pleasing, making this style of bolt a popular choice in highly visible areas.

The tapered shape reduces material volume in the head, contributing to a lighter overall weight. This is particularly beneficial in applications where minimising weight is crucial, such as in racing and high-performance motorcycles.

Like cap head bolts, they are ideal for use in confined areas and can be easily tightened with an Allen key.

Our titanium M10 tapered head bolts are available in the following sizes:

M10x1.25x20, M10x1.25x25, M10x1.25x30, M10x1.25x35, M10x1.25x40, M10x1.25x45, M10x1.25x50, M10x1.25x55, M10x1.25x60, M10x1.25x65, M10x1.25x70

  1. Titanium M10 Countersunk Bolts

m10 countersunk titanium bolts

A countersunk bolt, also known as a flat-head bolt, sits flush with the object or surface it's inserted into. The term "countersunk" reflects their ability to "sink" into objects and surfaces. These bolts feature a flat head that tapers along the shaft. When driven into an object or surface, the head sinks to be flush with the material in which it sits.

 Our titanium M10 countersunk bolts are available in the following sizes:

M10x1.25x20, M10x1.25x25, M10x1.25x30, M10x1.25x35, M10x1.25x40, M10x1.25x45, M10x1.25x50
