6 Lobe Countersunk Head Thread Forming Screw for Plastic

SKU: TFS03 Category: Tag:

FasPlas thread forming screw for plastic, for fixing into a moulded or pre-drilled hole and available with a 30° or 45° flank angle and countersunk 6-Lobe head for excellent driver bit engagement and cam-out resistance.

The thread is designed for use within soft materials like plastic, and the flank angle allows the screw to slice through the plastic to maximise material engagement.

This type of thread offers the highest pull performance to ensure a positive fixing and the 6-Lobe TX head ensures that the maximum torque can be imparted to the fixing.

Thread forming screws are often also referred to as self tapping screws for plastic.

Manufactured in steel or stainless steel with a range of finishes also available.

Available from M6 to M30 with both 30° and 45° flank angle variants, with non-standard sizes also available to order.

Please contact us with your requirements to further your enquiry.
