Stainless steel flange head screws are a type of fastener made from stainless steel and have an integrated flange directly underneath the head. This flange serves as a built-in washer, distributing the load across a wider surface area and eliminating the need for a separate washer. The flange also provides a larger bearing surface which helps to prevent the head from sinking into the material being fastened. Stainless steel provides excellent corrosion resistance, making these screws suitable for use in environments where corrosion is a concern, such as outdoor, marine and chemical applications.
Corrosion Resistance: Stainless steel flange head screws offer excellent corrosion resistance, making them suitable for use in environments where corrosion is a concern, such as outdoor, marine and chemical applications.
Integrated Flange: The integrated flange serves as a built-in washer, distributing the load across a wider surface area and eliminating the need for a separate washer. This helps to prevent the head from sinking into the material being fastened.
Strength: Stainless steel screws have good strength and toughness, making them suitable for use in a wide range of applications.
Aesthetic Appeal: Stainless steel screws have a clean and modern appearance, making them suitable for applications where aesthetics are important.
Low Maintenance: Due to their corrosion resistance, stainless steel screws require little maintenance once installed.
Versatility: Stainless steel flange head screws can be used in a wide range of applications and materials, from wood and plastic to metal and concrete.
Recyclability: Stainless steel is 100% recyclable, making it an environmentally friendly choice.
Temperature Resistance: Stainless steel maintains its strength and toughness over a wide range of temperatures, making it suitable for use in high-temperature applications as well as cryogenic applications.
Yes, stainless steel flange head screws can be used outdoors. Stainless steel is known for its excellent corrosion resistance, which makes it suitable for outdoor applications where the screws may be exposed to moisture, salt or other corrosive elements. However, it’s important to select the appropriate grade of stainless steel for the specific environment. For example, 316 stainless steel has higher corrosion resistance compared to 304 stainless steel and is more suitable for marine or coastal environments. Additionally, the flange head design of the screw helps distribute the load across a larger surface area, which can help prevent the head from sinking into softer materials and provides a larger bearing surface that resists surface deformation of the mating material.
Marine Applications: Stainless steel’s resistance to salt water and other corrosive elements makes flange head screws suitable for marine applications such as boat building, docks and marine equipment.
Construction: Used in construction for attaching metal panels, roofing, siding and other building materials that require a strong, corrosion-resistant fastener.
Automotive: Used in automotive applications for attaching body panels, trim and other components that require a strong, durable screw.
Machinery and Equipment: Used for assembling machinery and equipment, especially in environments where corrosion resistance is important, such as food processing, chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing.
Outdoor Structures: Used for assembling outdoor structures such as decks, fences and playground equipment, where corrosion resistance and strength are important.
General Purpose: Suitable for a wide range of general-purpose applications where a strong, corrosion-resistant fastener is required.
Yes, stainless steel flange head screws can be used with a variety of materials, including metals, plastics, wood and composites. The flange head design helps to distribute the load across a larger surface area, which can help prevent the head from sinking into softer materials and provides a larger bearing surface that resists surface deformation of the mating material.
Galvanic Corrosion: When dissimilar metals are in contact in the presence of an electrolyte (such as water), galvanic corrosion can occur. To minimise this risk, it is recommended to use similar materials or use a suitable isolating material between the metals.
Material Compatibility: Ensure the screw is compatible with the material being fastened. For example, some plastics may be sensitive to the pressure exerted by the screw head and may crack.
Pre-drilling: Pre-drilling may be required for harder materials or to prevent splitting in materials like wood.
Torque: The required torque will vary depending on the material being fastened. It is important to apply the correct torque to prevent over-tightening, which can cause damage to the material or the screw.
Thermal Expansion: Different materials have different rates of thermal expansion. This needs to be considered in applications with significant temperature variations.
