316 Stainless Steel Socket Head Cap Screws
Internal Hex Drive Screws in Marine Grade Stainless Steel
A socket cap screw is a fastener driven with a socket wrench, and are knurled. Socket cap screws made of stainless steel are used primarily for long lasting applications, due to its corrosion-resistant nature and durability. Scratching or burring the metal will not create surface rust as the corrosion resistance exists within the metal itself. The 316 grade of stainless steel is used and recommended for applications in severe, harsh or marine environments. Its corrosion resistance is greater than the standard 18-8 stainless, which is why we recommend using 316 stainless steel fasteners for salt water application.
