Screws for thermoplastics
The use of plastics is becoming increasingly important due to new possible applications. The advantages of this lie in the areas of weight reduction, increased resistance to chemicals and the recycling of components, among others. Thanks to their economic assembly, removability and inexpensive procurement, direct screw fitting in plastics using self-tapping metal screws offers advantage in comparison with other fastening methods. Due to their smaller flank angle and larger thread pitch, fasteners that are specially designed for screw fitting in plastics enable greater process reliability than other types of screw.
We offer a stockable range of self-tapping metal screws for use in plastics. The production of over 150 different dimensions follows the standards of the automotive industry.
