For applications requiring enhanced durability in corrosive conditions, there’s nothing better than stainless steel. These lightweight and strong rust-resistant alloys excel in harsh operating environments. Keep parts secure with stainless steel flat head socket cap screws manufactured by KD Fasteners. 

What is a Flat Head Socket Cap Screw? 

A flat head socket cap screw is a fastener used to secure the mating parts or panels of an assembly or upper-level tool. It features a flat cylindrical head and hexagonal drive hole. 

The flat socket head enables driving when sufficient space for wrenches or sockets isn’t otherwise available. Upon insertion, the screw head sits flush with the surface of the mating part. Tightening occurs when torque is applied to the screw head. The screw head is clean unless other perimeters are requested. The absence of stampings or markings offers a smooth, orderly appearance. 

Characteristics & Benefits Of Stainless Steel
