ThreadHigh Low Thread

- increases pull-out strength
- reduces installed material cracking and splitting
Patented Self-drilling Thread*

- removes the need to pre-drill composite boards
- no pilot hole needed
Coarse Self-tapping Thread
Fine Self-tapping Thread
Thread With Wings*

- Wings are designed to ream out the timber, so the screw can achieve Max R.P.M. without burning out. When the wings hit the metal they will break off to permit the thread to self tap into the metal.
Single Thread
Molecular Lubrication*

- Patented lubrication, designed
to enhance screw insertion time
and provides greater resistance
to corrosion.
Reverse Thread-----
PointSuper Sharp Point*

- for ease of penetration
Sharp Point*

- for faster bite
- capable of penetrating 0.8mm steel
Self-Drilling Point

- doesn't require pre-drilled hole
Self Drilling Point

- doesn't require pre-drilled hole
Type 17 point*

- reduces torque and the likelihood of the timber splitting when the screw is inserted close to the edge
- doesn't require a pilot hole into most wood types

NOTE!

Some sellers have info that point is A 25 but according to TIMco info, new screws are with Type 17 points.
