These are custom type A tin cobalt chrome plated sheet metal screws made using type 316 stainless steel, designated by a dot on the head of each screw. Like the other custom tin cobalt chrome plated screws, these type A 6 X 3/8 phil flat sheet metal screws are manufactured overseas and supplied to our long time customer on a revolving blanket purchase order basis. The tin cobalt chrome plating is done in a barrel plate format for improved cost efficiency while still producing a very attractive cosmetic finish. Tin cobalt finish typically provides a slightly duller chrome finish than the traditional hexavalent chromium plating. All the custom tin cobalt plated parts we supply are electroplated with a bright nickel under-plate for improved longevity and appearance.
