Flat Head Socket Cap Screws
316 Stainless Steel Socket Cap Screws
Flat Head Socket Cap Screws have an undercut of 82 degrees and are driven with a hex Allen wrench or hex driver. A flat socket cap screw, also known as a flat socket head cap screw, socket screw or Allen flat socket bolt, is a type of cap screw with a cylindrical head and hexagonal drive hole. The term flat socket head cap screw typically refers to a type of threaded fastener whose head diameter is nominally 2 times or more that of the screw shank (major) diameter.
316 Stainless Steel Flat Head Socket Cap Screws are used and recommended for applications in severe, harsh or marine environments. 316 Stainless Steel has corrosion resistance greater than 18-8 stainless, which is why we recommend using 316 stainless steel fasteners for salt water application. It is important to remember that even the salt in the air near a body of salt water can do damage to dry applications, so 316 is the material of choice. Common applications of 316 stainless steel fasteners include use on boats, docks, piers, and pools.
