18/8 or 18-8 Stainless steel is 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. Sheet metal screws have sharp cutting
threads that cut into sheet metal, plastic or wood. Spanner Sheet Metal Screw shanks are threaded up to the head or to the undercut. Sheet metal screws make excellent fasteners for attaching metal hardware
to wood because the fully threaded shank provides good retention in
wood. Security screws in this selection feature a pan head with a snake eye drive.
