Screws for Plastics
Plas-Tech® 30° Screws for Plastics
Plas-Tech® 30° Screws for Plastic feature a 30º thread angle and an 8º pitch angle to optimise performance in all types of thermoplastics.
The 30º thread profile minimises radial expansion and stress in the boss. It also increases load-carrying capabilities through increased thread engagement and can be used in repeat assembly operations.
The optimum thread pitch allows deeper thread engagement and increases pull-out values. The recessed thread root allows optimal material flow, minimises installation torque, improves clamp load and minimises the potential of the boss cracking. The round body of the screw evenly distributes the surface contact between the application and the screw, improving load ratio.
Plas-Fix® 45° Screws for Plastics
Plas-Fix® 45° Screws are a Metric 3-Lobe Bodied Screw that encompass a 45º thread profile which allows deep thread penetration into the plastic material. The 3-lobe body allows displaced material to cold flow back into relief areas which minimises radial stress and reduces the possibility of boss failure.
Plas-Fix® 60° Screws for Plastics
Plas-Fix® 60° Screws are an Inch 3-Lobe Bodied Screw that feature a 60° thread profile which allows deep thread penetration into the plastic material. The 3-lobe body allows displaced material to cold flow back into relief areas which minimises radial stress and reduces the possibility of boss failure.
Type BT (25) & Type Y Thread Cutting Screws
Thread Cutting Screws are designed to “cut” threads in thermoset plastics. Thread Cutting Screws minimise installation torque and maximise assembly performance. Each type has design features that allow the screw to form a thread with lower torque figures whilst accommodating the removal of the waste material.
High-Low Threads (30°High - 60°Low) Screws for Plastics
High-Low screws are twin threaded and have two widely spaced threads for use in thermo plastic material or chipboard. The high thread has a 30° included angle whilst the low thread has a 60°included angle. The twin thread profile allows increased thread engagement in softer thermoplastics increasing pull-out loads and improving thread stripping torque values.
