1.Application of Chipboard Screws
2.SPAX Wood Screws (Chipboard Screws Countersunk Head, Saw Tri-Claw Thread Galvanised Yellow Chromated)
The Galvanised Chipboard Screw has a coarse thread and a fine shank to maximize grip into chipboard, MDF, and other soft timbers. The head has nibs which help to remove the chipboard particles when countersinking. The galvanized coating is suitable for most outdoor applications.
chipboard screw or particleboard screw is a self-tapping screw with a thin shaft and coarse threads. Chipboard is made up of resin and wood dust or wood chips, so chipboard screws are made to grip this composite material and to resist withdrawing. The screws solidly fasten chipboard to chipboard or chipboard to other materials such as natural wood.
Chipboard screws come in a variety of lengths and can be used to fasten chipboard in a variety of applications. Average length chipboard screws are often used to join chipboard flooring to regular wood joists. Smaller screws may be used to fasten hinges to chipboard cabinetry. Very long screws may be used to butt chipboard to chipboard when making cabinets. Average screws are 1.5 inches (around 4 cm), small screws are usually ½ inches (around 1.5 cm), longer screws are 5 inches (around 13 cm).
Different shapes and materials of chipboard screws are common as well. The most common screws are made out of zinc, yellow zinc, brass, or black oxide. Popular heads are either pan, flat, or bugle, and popular gauges are 8 and 10. Screws may have Phillips or square (Robertson) screw drives.
