Exceptional purity and chemical resistance with moderate strengthset screw s

  • High Purity and low extractables
  • Chemically resistant to most common solvents including acids, salts, oils and steam
  • Mechanical strength and toughness to 150°C (300°F)
  • Resistance to ultraviolet, nuclear radiation, and standard sterilization methods
  • Resistance to weathering and fungi
  • PVDF set screw features and benefits

PVDF set screws / Kynar® set screws are made from a tough engineered fluoro-thermoplastic that offers a unique balance of excellent chemical resistance and good strength properties.

PVDF set screws have the characteristic stability of fluoropolymers when exposed to harsh chemical and ultraviolet environments but are much stronger mechanically than PTFE or PFA polymers.  PVDF screws also excel in high purity and low-permeability applications such as pharmaceutical and semi-conductor processing.

PVDF set screws are available in most metric and standard sizes. See our online store (top right) for common sizes or contact us for your specific requirements.

PVDF Set Screw Features & Benefits

PVDF set screws are unique in that they have no screw head, meaning that they have no protruding part past the threaded shaft. They are thread only and are available with a socket or slotted driver insert at one end. Set screws are used to secure an object within or against another object. Typically they secure a rotating part such as a gear or shaft. PVDF set screws are driven through a threaded hole in the rotating part until it is tight against the inner object, preventing from moving relative to the outer object. Set screws are available with various points depending on the application.

cup point

Cup Point 
This is the most commonly used set screw and is identified by a cup-shaped indentation on one end. PVDF cup points are typically used for a quick, semi-permanent or permanent applications where it is acceptable to cut the cup point edge of the screw.

 

Cone Pointcone point
A cone point is easily identifiable by its sharp cone-shaped point – just like an ice cream cone. PVDF cone point set screws deliver the strongest clamping force due to the deep penetration of the point. As a result they are used for permanent assembly.

 

flat point set

Flat Point
The cheapest and simplest of the set screw point styles, this screw has a flat surface on the bottom of the screw. This type is used when you need the ability to frequently change parts and require minimal shaft deformation.
