Type AB point has a conical tip and fine spaced threads that are suitable for forming threads in thin metals between 0.015" and 0.050" thick and resin impregnated plywood
Steel is often used in applications where strength is the primary consideration, and the black oxide finish offers mild corrosion resistance and lubricity
Hex washer head has six flat sides that a wrench can grip from the side in low-profile applications and has a flange for additional bearing surface to distribute the force over the material being fastened
Hex drive tightens from the side with a wrench, enabling use when there is no space above for a driver
The black oxide finish steel sheet metal screw with hex washer head and hex drive has a Type AB point for forming threads in thin metals between 0.015" and 0.050" thick and resin impregnated plywood. The Type AB point has the conical tip of a Type A point with the finer spaced threads of a Type B point. Steel is often used in applications where strength is the primary consideration. The black oxide finish offers mild corrosion resistance and lubricity. The hex washer head has six flat sides that a wrench can grip to turn from the side, enabling use when there is no space above the head for a screwdriver. The flange acts like a washer to increase the fastener's bearing surface and distribute the clamping force over a larger area, reducing damage to the material being fastened.
Sheet metal screws, a type of self-tapping screw, have threads down the entire length of the shank for tapping and fastening thin material. The point style determines the type of material the screw can be used on, such as metal, wood, or plastic. These screws commonly have a sharp point that helps penetrate the material.
