Type 316 Fastener Stainless Steel Information
- The patented 4CUT tip has a square core and serrated threads to reduce installation torque and make driving easier with no predrilling and minimal wood splitting.
- Offering the same easy-driving, split-reducing installation of the standard SDS screw, these screws are made from Type 316 stainless steel. The stainless-steel SDS screws are appropriate for higher-exposure environments where maximum corrosion-resistance is required. See Corrosion Information.
- 3/8" hex washer head is stamped with the No-Equal sign and fastener length for easy identification after installation.
Type 316 stainless steel is a nickel chromium austenitic grade of stainless steel with 2-3% molybdenum and is inherently non-magnetic. Fasteners made from Type 316 stainless steel are compliant with the 2006, 2009, and 2012 International Building Code, section 2304.9.5 and the International Residential Code 2006, Section R319.3 and 2009 and 2012, section R317.3. Type 316 stainless steel is not hardened by heat treatment and provides the highest level of corrosion protection available, especially in environments with chlorides.
