The use of plastics is gaining importance due to new possible applications. The benefits here, among other things, are in the areas of weight reduction, increased resistance to chemicals and recycling of the components.
Due to its efficient possible assembly, detachability and low-cost procurement, the direct screw connection of plastics with thread-forming metal screws provides advantages in comparison with other connection methods.
Connection elements specially designed for the screw connection in plastics enable higher process reliability in comparison with other screw types due to their smaller flank angle and larger thread pitch.
With the WÜPLAST® product line, Würth Industry is providing its customers with an in-stock assortment of thread-forming metal screws for use in plastics. The manufacture of the more than 150 different dimensions is performed in accordance with automotive industry standards.
