Bülte has expanded its product range with washer faced hex screws with Torx.
Revealed earlier this year, Bülte has released more details on the fresh launch, which is manufactured in natural nylon. This new range combines three shapes in one: hex head, star drive and washer. When compared with metallic screws, natural nylon is light, non-conductive to electricity and has very good thermal properties. And the material’s mechanical strength provides good resistance to shocks and will also resist staining.
This triple fastener combination offers several advantages:
– It works with a variety of drive tools : Spanner / Socket / Torx driver
– The combined washer :
- Limits the pressure / tension under the screw head
- Offers better support and protect the fastened surface
- Better distribution of the load
The star drive:
- Improves tightening torque
- Is less likely to slip during tightening
Dimensions available include M4, M5, M6, lengths 6 to 60 mm depending on the diameter.
Besides Nylon, BÜLTE also has this range available in PP, PE, PVDF and PC on request. These materials are also stainless and they offer higher resistance to diluted acids, greases, oils, alcohol or petrol.
Another option is fibreglass-filled Nylon which combines enhanced mechanical performance and long term durability. It represents the perfect polyamide for pieces that require higher Torque and increased shock absorption, Bülte said.
The washer faced hex screw with Torx can be adapted to a wide variety of applications and can be produced in a large range of colours (see RAL chart, minimum quantity on request).
