Equally as strong as steel but 45 percent lighter, Titanium is one of the most durable metals on the planet. Button socket cap screws manufactured from this exotic alloy hold parts together over the long haul. Take your application to new performance levels with Titanium button socket cap screws from KD Fasteners. Whether you need a standard product or a made-to-suit joining solution, we’re your source for high-quality fasteners.
Why pick a button socket cap screw?
It’s a cap screw with a cylindrical head and hexagonal drive hole. The screw head is clean and has no stamping or marking, which results in a smooth, finished look.
A button socket cap screw is used to secure the mating parts or panels of an assembly or upper-level tool. Usually, an Allen wrench or hex key drives the screw into the components’ holes, and tightening occurs by applying torque to the screw head.
Boost performance with Titanium
Titanium is a robust, corrosion-resistant, and inert metal that easily binds with iron, aluminum, vanadium, nickel, molybdenum, and other metals to produce high-performance titanium alloys. Typical traits include:
- Oxide resistance
- Ductile and malleable when heated
- High strength-to-weight ratio
- Burns at high temperatures and when pure nitrogen is present
- High energy absorption
- Low adhesion
- Limited condensation
- Erosion resistance
- Insoluble to water, but soluble in concentrated acids
Titanium is biocompatible, meaning not harmful or toxic to living tissue, due to a resistance to corrosion from bodily fluids. That makes it suitable for use as fasteners in implantable medical devices, such as:
- Drug pumps
- Bone growth stimulators
- Battery components
- Left Ventricular Assist Devices, or LVADs
- Neurostimulation Devices
The primary advantage of Titanium is the ability to withstand extremes. It’s beneficial for industries that operate in harsh environments. Examples include:
- Oil and gas
- Consumer products
- Heavy machinery
