The PLASTITE® 45 screw is designed to facilitate thread-forming in less-compressible plastics while providing high resistance to strip-out and pull-out. It has smaller root and major diameters than a 48º PLASTITE®, so it can be used in smaller bosses.

Features

Features

N/A
  • Tri-roundular configuration that allows displaced material to cold flow back into relief areas.
  • 45º profile allows thread to penetrate deeply into plastic material
  • Single lead design and narrow helix angle lowers drive torque and failure torque in stiffer plastics

Benefits

Benefits

N/A
  • Reduces possibility of boss failure
  • Increases product reliability
  • Eliminates need for inserts and lock washers
  • Minimizes radial stress
  • Allows design of thinner bosses
  • Generates strong mating threads
  • Resists vibration loosening
  • Reduces probability of strip-out and pull-out
  • Achieves wide differentials between drive and fail torque
  • Creates less stress on the boss
