ALUMI-TITE is a thread forming screw for aluminium and soft metal materials which is designed to solve fastening problems caused by soft metals.
If general self-tapping screws are used with a soft metal such as ADC, the screws are more likely to cause sticking with mated hole because of galling. Moreover, soft metal is more likely to cause the internal threads to deform or cause screws to loosen because of varying thermal expansion coefficients. To address such fastening problems, we have developed ALUMI-TITE.
1) In some cases where screws can get loose because of vibration
(automobiles, electric tools, air conditioning equipment, OA equipment, personal computers, mobile communication devices, agricultural machines, and other products), the use of ALUMI-TITE is one of the best choices.
2) In some cases where screws can get loose because of temperature changes (engine parts, water heaters, personal computers, mobile communication devices, and other products), the use of ALUMI-TITE is one of optimal options.
3) ALUMI-TITE coated with CP-Grip is also available for applications which prohibit metal powder.
