Users of PLASTITE 48 - 2 scr ews should perform their own test to determine the most efficient pilot hole size for their own particular use, or contact the application engineering department of a qualified supplier or REMINC. 19. PLASTITE 48 - 2 Screws Minimum Screw Size Out-of- Soft Ductile Brittle Cable TV Hardware Background. Manufacturer of cable TV hardware was having difficulty attaching circuit board to cast aluminum housing. During wave soldering operation the clearance holes in circuit board filled with solder.

PLASTITE 48-2 screws have a TRILOBULAR™ body like PLASTITE 45 screws, but incorporate a double lead, two-start thread. The steeper helix angle from the double lead permits higher fail torque to be obtained, usually resulting in a higher differential between fail torque and thread forming torque, which allows easier power tool adjustment when assembly stripping is the problem. Trilobular thread-rolling screw with extra wide spacing between 48 profile threads; twin lead threads with a 1- 2 thread point taper. 48 - 2 PLASTITE ALTERNATIVE SCREWS - trilobular thread Specifications heremended Pilot Hole Sizes 3/4 +/- 0.050 all lengths +/- 0.050 Across Center Trilobular thread rolling screw having twin lead thread design; deep and narrow 48 degree thread profile and extra wide spacing between threads and a 1- 2 thread tapered point. 0 thru 1/4 dia

Plastite 48-2 Trilobular™ thread-rolling screws have twin lead threads to provide faster, more efficient insertion. The sharp 48 thread profile increases holding strength and reduces material displacement and boss bursting tendencies. Inch Series PLASTITE 48-2 Screws. Users of PLASTITE 48-2 screws should perform their own test to determine the most efficient pilot hole size for their own particular use, or contact the application engineering department of a qualified supplier or REMINC. PLASTITE 45, 48 - 2 SCREWS Pages 17, 18 19 Advantages Applications PLASTITE 45 TRILOBULAR thread rolling screws have extra wide spacing between narrow profile threads, resulting in exceptionally low induced stress and extra low boss bursting tendencies. TRILOBULAR thread form design provides full relief for easy driving
