Stainless Steel Wood Screws – At Swiftfix we have a large selection of available wood screws. With all types of head styles, various tip formats, different drives and massive size range we have a stainless screw for every application.
A4 stainless steel is known as a marine grade of stainless steel. It has an increased resistance in outdoor environments and to harsh chemicals. This is because it had a slightly higher chrome and molybdenum content than A2. A4 is generally more expensive than A2. But in the long run can be more cost-effective due to the lack of maintenance or replacement required.
A2 stainless steel has a high hardness level providing corrosion and oxidation resistance, with a good prevention of wear and tear. It does not rust, however, unlike A4 it cannot come into contact with salt so is not suitable for marine work like A4 is.
Hardened stainless steel has been treated with heat or chemicals to make it harder and more resistant to wear and tear. This type of steel is typically used for tools and machinery that are subject to high levels of wear and tear, such as axes, knives, and saws.
