HECO-UFIX® MDF screw – The screw with drilling Point and cutting ribs for all kinds of screw connections.
MDF is very often used to make furniture, models and moulds and in the construction of kitchen cabinets. An MDF board consists of wood fibres, which are moulded into a mat and then pressed to make a board. If a conventional screw is screwed into the end, the board will split and be unusable. HECO developed the HECO-UFIX® MDF screw for perfect results with this material.
The specially shaped MDF drilling point with cutting ribs centres the screw as soon as it is positioned and clears out a lot of material during driving. This prevents the MDF board from splitting. Nor do bulges appear in the surface when screws are screwed into the end of the board. The HECO-plus toothing at the leading end "saws" one turn into the wall of this "hole". The precisely matching diameter of the "hole" and screw thread provide maximum hold as well as maximum safety against splitting. The HECO-plus toothing also reduces the driving torque.
For those who work with MDF/HDF, the HECO-UFIX® is an essential fastener. Don’t just take our word for it – see for yourself!
