Explanation:
ça pourrait être ça (acier au carbone), mais je ne vois pas pourquoi le "/". Peut-être l'auteur n'est pas anglophone...

simplement "vis Allen" (ou vis a six pans enfonces, vis creuse a six pans)


Explanation:
This assumes you are talking about screws and not directly of bolts. If it is really of bolts you want to talk about, it is a "boulon Allen". I think that the term "C/S" is redundant.
