Pan head screws with 6-lobe 22 November 2019

Made of natural nylon, this new range from Bülte is available from M4 to M8, with lengths from 6mm to 60mm depending on the diameter. These screws are used when a wider bearing surface or smoother, more finished appearance is desired, or in material too thin to accommodate a countersunk head.

Due to their head geometry, pan head screws with 6-lobe are designed for light fastening applications. The 6-lobe footprint offers many advantages such as ensuring a good alignment of the tool and enabling the use of automatic, electric tools; as well as optimal force transmission since the driving force is transmitted by the surfaces and not by the edges. There is also no ‘cam out’ effect (tool removal during assembly) known with cruciform prints.

“Like all our products, our polyamide fasteners are distinguished from metal screws by their lightweight, stainless and electrically non-conductive nature. The excellent thermal properties and good mechanical resistance of the polyamide make these screws resistant to shocks,” explains Bülte.

In addition to nylon, Bülte offers this range in PP, PE, PVDF, and PC on request, materials that are also stainless and therefore resistant to diluted acids, fats, oils, alcohol or petrol. Also available, are glass-fibre reinforced nylon. This polyamide combines mechanical performance with long-term durability and is an ideal solution for highly stressed parts requiring
shock absorption.

“Our business managers will assist you from design to implementation, and help you make the right choice, with free quotes and samples available on request,” comments Bülte.
