Stainless Steel Wood Screws
Slotted Oval Head Wood Screws in 18-8 Stainless Steel
Slotted Oval Head Wood Screws are designed to adjoin two pieces of wood tightly and efficiently. Wood Screws are partially threaded with a shoulder below the screw's head designed to slide through the top pieces of wood so that it can pull both boards together tightly. Slotted Oval Head Wood Screws feature a countersunk and undercut head with a raised decorative top.
Stainless steel Wood Screws 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. Stainless Steel is a soft metal due to the low carbon content, therefore most stainless steel screws are cold-formed and not heat treated or thru-hardened. Cold forming and threading causes Stainless Steel fasteners to become slightly magnetic, some fasteners will be more magnetic than others depending on size and how quick the cold forming process is. Stainless Steel fasteners are typically a clean silver color, which also makes them common in finishing and decorative applications. Stainless Steel should never be used with aluminum, corrosion may occur.
