Fastite® 2000™ fasteners feature our exclusive Radius Profile Thread™ with twin-lead helix angle. This mating thread system engages diametrically opposed threads, providing low thread-forming torque with a high resistance to failure. You’ll find that the head seats squarely compared to the off-axis tendency of sheet metal screws.
This exclusive thread-forming design is created to deliver cost-effective and optimum joint performance in sheet metal applications as thin as 0.7mm (.028 in.).
Many of the design innovations employed in Fastite® 2000™ fasteners are also found in our Taptite 2000® high-performance thread-rolling fasteners.
