48-2 Plastite® Screws
screws are specially designed trilobular®
thread-rolling screws for use in plastics.
Maximum holding power
screws have a twin lead thread design offering quicker and more effective screw penetration into the substrate. They also have a deep and narrow 48 degree thread profile with extra wide spacing between threads. This thread profile improves thread-forming and thread engagement within the plastic. In addition these screws have a trilobular®
thread configuration which improves displacement of material into relief areas when driven into the plastic. This further increases the resistance to vibrational loosening forces. The higher quality internal threads produced by these specialized screws also reduces material failure and improves holding power in plastic materials. It also reduces stripping, pull-out and allows for repeated removal and insertion into the same tapped hole.
