- PVDF flat head screw features and benefits
PVDF / Kynar® flat head screws are made from a tough engineered fluoro-thermoplastic that offers a unique balance of excellent chemical resistance and good strength properties.
PVDF flat head screws have the characteristic stability of fluoropolymers when exposed to harsh chemical and ultraviolet environments but are much stronger mechanically than PTFE or PFA polymers. PVDF screws also excel in high purity and low-permeability applications such as pharmaceutical and semi-conductor processing.
PVDF flat head screws are available in most metric and standard sizes. See our online store (top right) for common sizes or contact us for your specific requirements.
PVDF flat head screws are characterized by having a head with a top flat surface (which can feature either a slotted, phillips or allen driver) and bottom that is cone shaped or countersunk. With this design, the head of the screw can align flush or below the surrounding surface having obvious benefits.

For most flat head screw designs the angle of countersink is usually 82° for UNC and UNF applications however other angles ranging from 60° -120° could be specified.
