Ultra-thin head screw that are 77% thinner than conventional pan head which makes possible flat external surface and contributes low-profile design and weight saving.
These screws feature a reliable TORX drive that facilitates more reliable installation and support smaller and lighter design.
With the miniaturisation of a large number of products, this has become an invaluable addition to the range of screws. With a flattened fastening face, this supports layers of parts.
The Hexalobular Torx drive provides a slip-less and easy fixing. Stainless Steel provides long life and corrosion resistance.
-For flat surface design without head edge
-For smooth appearance design
In installation where the part does not permit deep enough holes to make a countersunk.
The large diameter heads of the low-profile screws have been engineered to spread the load across a wide surface to provide greater holding power in thinner material applications. These offer a sleek, unobtrusive and polished finish for any design.
Saves space and permits flexible design, especially in weight and space sensitive applications such as drones, electric scooters, aerospace and medical equipment.
Low Profile Wafer Head Screws
Low profile or Wafer Head screws are often used in laptops and other electronic components.
Made from Steel with a Black Coating, making it Magnetic to facilitate easy holding to the driver bit while the black coating matches with most electronic assemblies.
Available in Steel BLACK coated.
Sizes: M1.2 to M3
This finish is very useful in reducing light reflection from parts and providing an integrated finish to black coloured products and parts.
These screws have a permanent black colour with exceptional strength and elasticity that does not chip, peel, craze, or rub off and provides good resistance to wear and abrasion.

- Always keep the tightening torque within the recommended torque range. This will prevent screw and joint failure. Consult the product datasheet for details. Using a torque enabled driver is recommended.
- Check tapped hole with thread plug gauge before assembly to ensure perfect installation.
- Use a good quality Hexalobular bit and check that there is no excessive play before applying torque.
