Thread-Forming Screw For High-Performance and Bioplastics

Bioplastics are increasingly being used for components in industrial products. Examples include components from the automotive sector, the electronics industry and the construction industry. However, adapted fasteners that can be processed reliably are required to screw biopolymers together.

When it comes to future topics such as sustainability in the value chain, the focus is just as much on the overall products as it is on the individual components and their connection. However, in view of the increasing use of bioplastics in high-performance products, the connections for these new materials must be reconsidered and optimized.
