TR Fastenings is expanding its screws for plastics range with the introduction of the Plas-Fix 45 screw. This product has a 45-degree angle and Tri-lobular thread form, which makes it suitable for harder plastics.
TR also continues to offer the Plas-Tech 30 screw that has a 30-degree angle and is used extensively in softer plastics. The complete range offers a number of different head styles and thread sizes, ranging from 01.4mm up to 06.0mm. Both screws are available off the shelf in case-hardened steel and offer superior screw performance with low-torque drive and high pull-out strengths.
The range of products for plastics also includes a comprehensive selection of brass inserts. Consisting of 16 different types, both headed and un-headed, these brass inserts are available in sizes ranging from M2 up to M10. The variety of styles offers a number of installation methods with varying performance levels, allowing users to easily find the product to suit their individual application.
TR’s products for plastics meet virtually all assembly requirements within the thermoset and thermoplastic industries, and can offer considerable time and cost-saving benefits. In addition, they are designed for optimum performance and therefore can be used in a number of different industries, including electrical, telecommunications, sound and vision.
Steve Wallis, TR Fastenings product specialist, says: “In recent months, TR has invested heavily in its products for plastics ranges. We are confident that we now have a quality fastener to suit most applications and we welcome the opportunity to discuss requirements with manufacturers.”
