Micro-bit Replaces Sharp Point Type 17 on High Volume Woodbinder Fasteners

ST Blog PostsArtboard 4 In separate news, SEALTITE also introduces its new micro-bit engineered drill point in 2016. This new drill point will replace the sharp point Type 17 on all high volume WOODBINDER fasteners. The number one complaint regarding sharp point screws is the inconsistency of the drill point. The micro-bit takes metal building fastener drill point technology & marries it to a post-frame fastener. This will provide the most consistent post-frame drill point in the industry. The goal is 100% performance. It will eliminate the metal “pigtail” shaving that can embed itself in the EPDM rubber washer, causing a potential roof leak. The point will generate smaller shavings that can easily be swept from a roof after installation. It will easily penetrate multiple thicknesses of steel—as many as 4 layers of 26 gauge often found at ridge cap applications.
