A: Nylon is a relatively UV stable plastic. I used these to replace corroded cadmium plated steel hardware in decorative aluminum outdoor tables and they are working well. Part of my choice was because I wanted hardware that would remain tight without having to over-tighten them and stress the cast aluminum. If your application allows higher torque you might have other options with standard lock nuts or lock washers.
A: Everbilt 1/4 in.-20 Stainless Steel Nylon Lock Nut (3-Pack) is appropriate for exterior purposes. The stainless steel finish outside will be rust resistant and the ring insert is the only part with nylon.
