These Forgefix Pozidrivcountersunk Self Tapping Screws are made from grade A2 stainless steel, offering excellent resistance to corrosion. The screws tap their own thread in to a pre-drilled pilot hole in sheet or solid material.
The Self Tapping Screws are single threaded, and available in the most popular sizes.
Ideal for use in many DIY, ironmongery, engineering, electrical and plumbing applications particularly those exposed to the elements or in costal and marine locations.
A2 Type 304 Stainless Steel can also be called 18/8 because it contains approximately 18% Chromium and 8% Nickel. It is austenitic steel and is non-magnetic. The chromium provides a corrosion and oxidation resistance, although it may tarnish. It is immune to foodstuffs, sterilising solutions, most organic chemicals and dyestuffs and also a wide variety of inorganic chemicals. As such, it is used extensively for many types of fixings and fasteners used in sanitary or hygiene applications.
The Pozidriv screw is similar in appearance to the classic Phillips cross-head, but in fact is very different. The Pozidriv has four additional points of contact, and does not have the rounded corners that the Phillips screw drive has. The biggest advantage it offers is that, when used with the correct tooling in good condition, it does not cam out, allowing great torque to be applied. The Pozidriv screw can easily be distinguished by a line embossed in the screw head at 45° to the slots for the driver.
Countersunk heads are designed to sink flush with substrates to leave a smooth surface finish. Single thread screws have been designed to offer higher pull out values and quicker insertion.
