RS PRO A2 Stainless Steel Hexagon Socket Head Screws, Metric Thread

The RS PRO hexagon head socket cap screws have a narrow head and are perfect for use in hard to reach areas. The fasteners are good in machine repair and maintenance and in many sectors including food and beverage, automotive and aerospace.
This range of fasteners are produced from A2 (304) stainless steel and they are ideal for use in the food and beverage industry. A2 stainless steel provides good corrosion resistance and is more affordable than A4 (316) stainless steel. Although A4 (316) has greater corrosion resistance.

You tighten or undo them, using an Allen key or a hex key. They can have various tip point types which include:
Cup point – concave tip, most commonly used
Flat point – used for frequent resetting or relocating, simple and cost-effective
Cone point – pointed tip, designed for a more permanent installation, highest holding capability due to the precise contact of the cone point
Half Dog point – the tip is cylindrical

Features and Benefits:

Various thread sizes available, including M3, M4, M5, M6, M8 and M10
Manufactured from A2 stainless steel
Can be used instead of hex bolt when there is less clearance
Socket Head Cap Screw – strongest of all head styles
Head height is equal to shank diameter

Typical Applications include:

Although uses may vary, as standard, these screws are fasteners for industrial equipment or machines which requires parts to be fixed onto a surface or together. The socket will need to be the same metric thread as the screw itself. As an example, some of the types of uses would be:
Fasteners and fixings
Machine tooling and repair
Security guarding
Electronic applications
Automotive industry
Domestic applications
Medical applications
Facilities and maintenance applications

FAQs
What is a socket screw?

Socket screws are defined by their name. They are a type of threaded bolt which screws into the intended socket. There are various thread sizes and lengths and can be used for both industrial and personal purposes. Good quality and reliable RS PRO socket screws ensures the fixing will remain strong and stable, whatever the application.

What are the benefits of stainless steel?

Stainless steel is useful for more than just a visual purpose. The main highlight would be the superior corrosion resistance, stopping unwanted issues like rusting. High heat resistance is also a big benefit, due to the way stainless steel is created, it can withstand an incredible amount of heat as opposed to a screw or socket made from standard steel. The only possible issue may be cost, however, a reliable and durable material will not only increase the longevity of the application, but also the sustainability.
