Machine Screws - Slotted Pan - Metric - A4 Stainless Steel

A machine screw is a type of screw that is commonly used in industrial and manufacturing applications to secure components within engines, electronic products and general machinery.

This type of machine screw has a raised head with a slotted recess that can be installed with a flat-bladed screwdriver or bit. They are available in zinc plated, brass or stainless steel.

Unlike the domed head of the pozidrive version, slotted pan head machine screws have a head that is flat on top, resembling an upturned frying pan. For a similar type of screw that has a slightly smaller diameter but with a thicker, deeper head take a look at our cheese head slotted machine screws.

ABOUT A4 STAINLESS STEEL METRIC THREAD

The most common thread type in production today. Usually specified as M then a number x another number. This signifies the thread diameter and the length of the fastener.

For example, M4 x 30 means that the major thread diameter (the external distance across the outside of the thread) is 4mm and the length is 30mm. Length is usually measured from the underside of the fastener head.

A4 Stainless is often referred to as 316 or 18/10 stainless. As in A2 above, the numbers 18/10 refer to the chromium and nickel content- 18% chromium and 10% nickel.

A4 stainless is often used in marine or chemical environments as it has greater corrosion resistance than A2.

The chemical composition of both A2 and A4 stainless steel are almost identical with the most notable differences being the higher nickel content and the addition of Molybdenum in A4. Molybdenum is a silvery white metal that is highly corrosion resistant, very ductile and has an extremely high melting point.

There can also be Titanium present in A4 stainless at the option of the manufacturer.

Typically, A4 grade stainless steel costs slightly more than A2 because of its enhanced chemical and production properties. The extra cost can be justified, however, because hardware made of A4 stainless steel is extra resistant to tarnish and corrosion, enabling it to last a very long time.
