4mm 5 Pieces M2 Din916 Stainless Steel Hollow Cutting Point Screw Hexagon Head Screws With Hole.
Stainless steel hexagon head screws, commonly known as hex screws or hex bolts, are fasteners with a hexagonal head designed to be tightened or loosened using a wrench or a socket. These screws are widely used in various industries, construction, automotive, and DIY projects due to their strength, corrosion resistance, and ease of use.
Material: Stainless steel hexagon head screws are made from stainless steel. A type of alloy that contains chromium, which provides excellent resistance to corrosion, rust, and staining. This makes them suitable for outdoor and marine applications where exposure to moisture or harsh environments is a concern.
Hexagonal head: This design allows for easy application and removal using a standard wrench or socket, providing a firm grip and minimizing the chances of stripping the head.
Threads: Stainless steel hexagon head screws have either fully threaded or partially threaded shafts, depending on the specific application. Fully threaded screws run the entire length, while partially threaded screws have a portion of their shaft without threads.
Sizes: These screws come in various sizes and lengths to accommodate different needs and applications. The sizing is typically expressed using a standardized system such as metric (e.g., M6, M8, M10) or imperial (e.g., 1/4″, 3/8″, 1/2″).
Grades: Stainless steel hexagon head screws are available in different grades, such as 18-8, 304, 316, and 316L. The grade indicates the composition of the stainless steel and its specific properties. For example, 316 stainless steel has higher corrosion resistance and is suitable for more demanding environments than 18-8 stainless steel.
