PHEINOX™ Stainless Steel Screws (305 stainless steel grade) are another first from GRK Fasteners.
PHEINOX™ Screws provide a reasonably priced alternative when only stainless steel will do. Our special composition of PHEINOX™ stainless steel is one of a kind. It is hardened and rust free and is of the quality you come to expect from GRK products. All of our stainless steel products come with a limited lifetime warranty against staining and rusting.
GRK’s R4™ self-countersinking screw has an under head with saw-blade like patented cutting teeth and six self-contained cutting pockets. Together these features act like a circular saw blade, transporting the "drill dust" away from the edge of the screw hole while cutting a perfectly clean hole into even the most brittle materials without cracking any surface treatment. This design further enhances the R4™’s versatility by allowing the fastener to be installed without countersinking into even the hardest woods. The screw head closes the hole off with precision, leaving no damaged fibers around the head.
R4™ screws which are 2" and longer have a four threaded CEE thread that enlarges the screw hole for the non-threaded portion of the fastener. This technological advancement allows the wood to settle easily and increases the screw’s drawing strength, reducing the friction on the screw shank and lowering the driving torque. The R4™ is a multi-purpose screw that can be used in all woodworking and plastic applications.
Because the head has a 90 degree angle at the underside, the screw fits perfectly into the pre-countersunk holes of hardware fittings such as hinges or locks. Stocking of different screws is no longer necessary because the R4™ is a very versatile screw.
