Product Data Sheet

Shearing of the screws is significantly prevented by using this product. The shearing is caused by the swelling and shrinking of the wood, the so-called working of the wood. The warping of the wood is particularly pronounced in the boards’ transverse direction. For this reason the screw can break off under strain, and this is known as shearing.

Important: overall, pilot drilling must always be carried out where hardwood/tropical woods are used.

Screws are not included.
