DIY sheds selling stainless screws

Which / Do any of the DIY sheds / local builders merchants sell
stainless steel screws ?
I need some for prototyping and need to look at them etc. Various
lengths around 20mm etc.
Screws will be embedded in cement thus stainless. I can use some
aquapanel screws I have but they are too long for some areas.
Cheers,
Simon.

I don't recall seeing them in the sheds. Screwfix sell them and
have a number of trade counters. Your YP may list one or more
specialist fixing suppliers.
Places that sell bits for boats will have them - probably expensive but often in small packs so
handy if you only need a few

I have a pack that I bought from B&Q, same range as Screwfix, but only in
the very largest B&Q outlets.

Stainless steel can corrode as readily as mild steel if air is excluded from
the surface.

What ?
But I presume I am preventing rust, which needs oxygen, so either way I
am safe.
Any probs with stainless in cement ? if so makes a nonsense of
stainless EML instead of galv, etc.
Explanation ?

It's not a Shed but Components Direct have a very good range of both

screws.

Very good value too (IIRC £50 incl. VAT for free delivery)
