TX Aluminium Micro Profile Head Screws

TX Aluminium Micro Profile Head Screws

TX aluminium 6 Lobe Micro Profile Head Screws offer a lightweight, low profile fastening solution weighing approximately a third of the same screws manufactured in steel or stainless steel.

As well as being lightweight, aluminium screws also have many other advantages:

  • Resistance to atmospheric corrosion means that there is no need for the screws to be treated in ordinary environments
  • Resistance to chemical corrosion so are compatible with many chemicals and are safe to use in food holding containers and pharmaceutical products
  • They are non-staining but accept paint readily and can also be supplied in a range of colours
    (see TX aluminium Coloured Micro Profile Head Screws)

Another key feature of Aluminium 6 Lobe Micro Profile Screws is how flat they are in comparison to other screw types, such as truss head and pan / cheese head screws. This  makes them the ideal solution if the screws are to be used for fastening to a thin plate that can’t be counterbored to accept a flat head countersunk screw as they have an extremely thin head height.

All available sizes are listed below. Available to order in non-standard sizes and finishes, including small volume manufacture, modifications and custom parts to drawings.
