Lightweight, flexible, and corrosion resistant, aluminum is an incredibly versatile metal suitable for use in environments where exposure to moisture or the elements is expected. Stand up to harsh conditions with aluminum flat head socket cap screws from KD Fasteners, a leading provider of standard and custom fasteners for industrial applications. 

What is a Aluminum Flat Head Socket Cap Screw?

An Aluminum Flat Head Socket Cap Screw is a type of threaded fastener with a flat cylindrical head and hexagonal drive hole. The flat socket head permits driving when sufficient space for wrenches or sockets isn’t available. Tightening occurs when torque is applied to the screw head, which sits flush with the surface of the mating part upon insertion. 

Unless otherwise specified, the screw head is clean. The absence of stampings or markings offers a smooth, aesthetically pleasing appearance. 

Aluminum Characteristics & Benefits

Aluminum is a soft and silvery-white metal that naturally generates a protective thin oxide coating, which protects against corrosion and degradation. This material also has a long life and is completely recyclable, making it environmentally friendly.

Bindable with other elements like iron, silicon, copper, magnesium, manganese, and zinc, alloyed aluminum can be produced with a wide range of characteristics. Typical performance attributes include: 

  • Lightweight 
  • Resists Corrosion
  • Conducts Electricity
  • Absorbs Shock 
  • Nonmagnetic 
  • Ductile
  • High Strength-To-Weight Ratio
  • Absorbs Sound
  • Nontoxic
  • Reflectivity
  • Odorless
  • Non-Sparking
  • Thermally Conductive
