If you would live in europe I would send you some (working in a metal factory)
Also, go for a screw with a bolted hexed nut, the tools you will need weight less ... And they have the same strength
Inox - I believe that is what is called "stainless steel" here. It is stronger than ordinary steel, but not as strong as the nickel-chrome-molybdenum steel most crampons are made of. I knd of doubt that the screw used for the crampons is ordinary zinc-plated (galvanized) steel.
Stainless steel yes!
Don't know about american standards but we have those normal steel ones also in S355, this would make things even stronger
We also have nuts in titanium (god damn expensive!!!)
Will try some things on the bending bench tomorrow to see which ones are the strongest
