Mag-Form(reg) thread-forming fastener is for fastening die-cast magnesium and other low-ductility materials and is able to thread- form into magnesium and provide a stronger, more reliable joint. As the Mag-Form fastener is driven, the high-degree flank angle compresses the mating material, rather than roll-forming the material. This type of action creates strong mating threads, while minimizing debris generation and the potential for fracture of the application material. With the Mag-Form design, users are also available to eliminate off-line tapping operations.
