Grade 5 (Import) Hex Cap Screws

Grade 5 Hex Cap Screws are manufactured from medium carbon steel and are heat-treated, quenched and tempered.  With a proof load of 85,000 PSI and minimum tensile strength of 120,000 PSI, their strength is considered mid-range.  They are easily identified with the unique head marking of 3 radial lines and are most commonly available in plain finish, clear electro-zinc plate, and hot dip galvanized.  Import Grade 5 Hex Cap Screws are manufactured offshore, most often from China or Taiwan, and provide a more economical option to domestically manufactured screws.

Applications for Grade 5 Hex Cap Screws

Grade 5 Hex Cap Screws are very common fasteners found in manufacturing, repair and construction industries worldwide.  They are used to fasten 2 or more parts together in an assembly that may require future repair or maintenance disassembly.  Their six-sided hex head allows for a more substantial bearing and wrenching surface than what socket products or machine screws can provide, thereby making them the clear choice in many complex and heavy duty applications.
