MAGTITE fasteners are specifically designed for fastening into magnesium alloys. They tap and fasten in a single operation, eliminating a costly secondary tapping operation.
Magnesium can be challenging to work with – but MAGTITE fasteners make it much simpler. Because of its light weight non-ductile properties, Magnesium is prone to galling, cracking, or tearing when traditional thread forming fasteners are utilized to tap a secure thread. But MAGTITE fasteners form consistent lead threads allowing an easy start feature and a thread form which compresses the material promoting significant resistance to vibration loosening.
Other thread forming fasteners generate considerable debris as they attempt to tap into Magnesium, however MAGTITE generates little or no debris allowing light weight Magnesium to be used in applications previously not considered.
