Pozi Flange Head Thread Forming Screw for Plastic

SKU: TFS07 Category:

FasPlas Pozi Flange thread forming screws are ideal for plastic applications providing maximum engagement with the material as the relationship between the drive and the contact material will be a much better fit and less prone to loosening or loss of resistance. The screws feature a domed head that fits tight to the surface and require a pre-drilled or moulded hole to install into.

  • Pozi Drive
  • One piece flange head provides a larger bearing area without requiring a separate washer
  • Choice of 30°, 45° and 60° thread angle
  • Range of diameters and thread lengths
  • Manufactured in steel zinc or zinc & black, with stainless steel also available.

These screws are available in 30°, 45° and 60° thread angles. The angle required depends on the material they are to be fastened into and the level of resistance that is required – having an angled screw will improve the fit and security of the screw and make for a better fit when forming the thread.

The 45° and 60° Pozi Flange thread forming screws feature a trilobular body that means plastic material can fill the extra space that would not be present on a standard circular thread, reducing stress.

FasPlas Pozi Flange threadforming screws come in a variety of sizes in a range of diameters and lengths. As well as being available in various sizes they are also manufactured in different finishes – zinc steel, black steel and stainless steel.

All stocked sizes are listed below. FasPlas Pozi Flange thread forming screws are available to order in non-standard sizes and finishes, including small volume manufacture, modifications and custom parts to drawings.
