- PVDF hex head cap screw features and benefits
PVDF hex head cap screws are made from a tough engineered fluoro-thermoplastic that offers a unique balance of excellent chemical resistance and good strength properties.
PVDF hex head cap 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 / Kynar screws also excel in high purity and low-permeability applications such as pharmaceutical and semi-conductor processing.
PVDF hex head cap 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.
It is important to differentiate between a PVDF hex head cap screw and hex head bolt. Often people assume they are the same, but they are actually very different fasteners in terms of how they are manufactured, as well as from an application perspective. Regardless of your choice, PVDF hex heads offer strong, stable joints because of their large head service.

PVDF Hex Head Cap Screw Advantages
The most important feature of a PVDF hex head cap screws is that it has a larger bearing surface area which provide better clamping pressure than other type of fastener such as a socket head cap screw. Additionally, since debris build up is less of an issue with this style of fastener verses a socket head cap screw, they are ideal of dirty applications where particles could clog up a socket. Though PVDF socket heads are typically used for tight access applications, hex heads can be a better choice when there is only side clearance available for tightening.
