Taptite screws, also known as taptite thread-forming screws, are designed to create their own mating threads when driven into a pre-drilled hole or a softer material such as plastic or sheet metal. Taptite screws have unique features that provide excellent thread-forming capabilities and increased resistance to loosening.
Taptite screws typically have higher tensile strength compared to traditional screws. The thread-forming action increases the contact area between the screw and the mating material, distributing the load more evenly and reducing the risk of failure.
Taptite screws are versatile and can be used in various applications, including automotive, electronics, appliances, and other industries. They are particularly suitable for joining softer materials, such as plastics, sheet metal, and non-ferrous metals.
