Durable Fastener Options for Plumbing Industry Plumbing is a basic and extremely important part of any commercial office, factory or industrial location. Various types of products such as pipes, clamps, screws, nuts and bolts of various shapes and sizes are used to complete this intrinsic system. Major-IPC supports its clients in the plumbing industry by providing standard and custom rods, fasteners, and machining services to produce plumbing products.
Versatile Fastener OptionsOur fasteners are mainly used to support clamps and fixtures that are used to install and hold piping. Two popular types of screws that are used in plumbing applications are socket set machine screws and slotted set machine screws. Socket Set Machine Screws: There are two main materials that are used to manufacture our socket set machine screws. Socket set machine screws are manufactured with Kynar, also known as PVDF. However, they can also be produced utilizing materials like glass filled PEEK-HT, UHMW, and Radel, among others. Slotted Set Machine Screws: Our slotted set machine screws are produced with stainless steel. However, they can also be manufactured with zinc, brass, copper, nickel, and cadmium alloys. All these materials are chosen for their high resistance to corrosion. We also have the capabilities to provide other components such as sleeves and bushings, depending on the customer’s requirements.
Wide Material Choices for Piping RodsFor plumbing applications, we offer nylon rods as the first choice to our customers. Nylon is able to provide a variety of benefits in plumbing applications:
- As a standalone thermoplastic, nylon has one of the highest grades for engineering.
- Continuing from the above point, it is can be easily machined. Even large piping requirements can be completed within a short period of time.
- Most importantly, nylon has immense tensile strength, and is capable of supporting weights in excess of hundreds of kilograms.
World Class Machining ServicesMajor-IPC’s machining services are the most popular offerings chosen for applications by our plumbing clients. We provide solutions in terms of materials as well as manufacturing methods. Materials: We have the capabilities to work with thermoplastics as well as metals. A few examples of our manufacturing materials include:
- Stainless steel
- Milling and Drilling
- Tapping and Threading
- Lathe Turning and Boring
- Sawing and Shearing
- Prototype/ Production Machining
- Screw Machining
