Triangle Fastener Secures Patent For BURR BUSTER® Screws

Pittsburgh, PA - Triangle Fastener Corporation (TFC®) has secured a patent for its BURR BUSTER® screws. The company announced on September 17, 2021, that the US Patent and Trademark Office has granted Triangle Fastener Corporation patent protection on screws that utilize TFC's BURR BUSTER® thread and point design, like the company's PANEL-TITE® metal-to-wood self-piercing screws.

The patented design produces exceptional performance and value, while the point greatly reduces the amount burrs/chips (swarfs) that are created when the screw penetrates the steel. These chips can damage the sealing washer and cause rust on the panel. The low-angle thread helps eliminate over-driving and improves the resistance to back-out.
