Flaring Type Captive Screws

At Fastener Technology Corp., our experienced team of engineers are adept at creating a range of fasteners and components designed to meet the needs of the aerospace and defense industries.
Flaring screws are used in conjunction with flaring, or flare, nuts to provide a complete seal on joins that are subjected to high levels of vibration, or which are part of a unit that involves hazardous substances such as hydraulic fluid, fuel or gas. Flaring screws are commonly used in the aerospace industry as they have a greater torque tolerance than other types of nuts, and offer a more robust seal.
