An ordinary screw lacks seal protection, allowing dirt, fluids, gases etc. to infiltrate and damage sensitive devices. Sealing screws provide bi-directional sealing protection to systems where screws are used, to protect them against foreign contaminates, which, with a standard fastening may penetrate or leak and cause damage.
The seal screws incorporate an O-ring underneath the screw, bolt etc. which forms a sealant layer. The seal provides bi-directional sealing. The screws are very easy to use and do not need any special preparation or re-tightening
Automotion Components self sealing fasteners are designed and manufactured with a precision engineered groove beneath the head of the fastener. As the fastener is tightened, the O-ring is compressed, squeezing the O-ring between the groove and mating surface to complete the seal. The design of the groove controls the amount of compression of the O-ring and because O-rings retain their elastic memory, the screws are reusable time after time. There are a range of O-ring materials that can resist virtually all chemical and environmental conditions. We can also provide sealing screws (on request) to military specifications (MILSPEC).

|Hexagonal||Ideal for precision assembly. Most recommened where less surface area is available.|
|Most recommended drive type. Provides good control in |
driving. Always use a driver bit of the proper size which is in
|Positive-engaging, fast-locating method which transmits |
drive torque with less required downward pressure. Good
|Slotted||Accepts standard blade screwdriver. |
Requires less downward pressure to drive parts than those with recessed openings.
Use proper fitting blade to minimize slippage.
|Hex flange||Accepts hex wrench. Slotted drive is added to make it easier to remove the fastener (if required).|
|Security||These screws are impossible to remove without the special matching screwdriver.|
We can provide Torx® heads and security/tamper-proof screws, as well as special threads, grooves and cross holes for safety wires, and a further range of styles such as captive screws, anti-vibration strips on the threads etc (for extrene vibration applications).
