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 lightweight 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 lightweight magnesium to be used in applications previously not considered.
