Titanium Drill Point Screws Info
  Titanium Drill Point Screws  

Drill point screws are very useful for many purposes. With a built in drill bit on the tip of the screw, there is never a need to drill a pilot hole beforehand. Though they are used mainly for hanging drywall and fastening together sheet metal, they can also be used on wood and fiberglass. However, in many applications, extra strength and corrosion resistance may be required. That is where titanium drill point screws come in.

Grade 2 titanium, also known as commercially pure, boasts a yield strength of over 39,000 pounds per square inch, which is slightly more than 316 stainless steel. However, the main difference between the stainless steel and titanium screws is corrosion resistance. Stainless steel is primarily made of iron, approximately 70% or more. When introduced to moisture and oxygen, iron rusts rather quickly. Grade 2 and Grade 5 titanium however contain miniscule amounts of iron.

In short, a drill point screw used in the natural environment corrosion free. Even one used in a harsh marine environment will last perpetually. So contractors and boat owners alike may rest assured knowing they’ve made the right choice in selecting titanium drill point screws.
