What is a socket screw?

Socket screws are defined by their name. They are a type of threaded bolt which screws into the intended socket. There are various thread sizes and lengths and can be used for both industrial and personal purposes. Good quality and reliable RS PRO socket screws ensures the fixing will remain strong and stable, whatever the application.

What is BZP?

Meaning bright zinc plating, a shiny coating is applied to the steel, this process prevents corrosion and rusting. If the application is situated within a harsh environment, BZP will provide much-needed longevity and reliability. Although it may not be as effective as stainless steel, the added benefit would be the price. As stainless steel is completely rustproof, but expensive, BZP Steel offers a great solution and is massively cost-effective.
