The Plastite® 48-2 range of Trilobular™ screws is best suited for high-torque applications. They can be used on resilient thermoplastic substrates, including styrenics and fluoropolymers, many engineering grades, as well as structural foams. The pitches in our Plastite® fasteners are twice that of normal machine screws. They have a steep 48° thread profile with twin leads, which provides greater shear and drives them faster into plastic material compared to the other fasteners. Their Trilobular™ body further reduces the possibility of any pullouts due to vibrational loosening. Higher holding torque and faster seating of the screw reduces the need for any lock washers or inserts in these fasteners. Additionally, we also provide varied hardening and plating options for these screws to enhance its performance and corrosion resistance characteristics.
