Buildex® self-drilling Chipboard Screws

Buildex® self-drilling Chipboard screws have a coarse thread and fine shank to provide maximum grip and minimum stripout into chipboard MDF board and soft timbers. The head has ribs moulded around the countersunk head which help remove the chipboard particles when countersinking.

Not recommended for outdoor use.

How to Use
1. Measure the total thickness of the materials to be fastened.
2. Choose a screw long enough to provide approx. 20mm of thread embedment into the chipboard or wood being fastened to.
3. Fit a #2 Phillips drive bit to a power screwdriver set to low speed, approx. 1000rpm.
4. Put screw onto drive bit and place at fastening position.
5. Drive screw home until the head is flush with surface.
