Ductmate Industries Inc. has introduced its new premium fastener, the Ductmate HiTex. This high-end fastener, according to the company, features a variety of premium benefits. Using a high “hat” and a larger washer, the ¾-inch, No. 10-16 screws sit in the drill chuck much more securely then most standard fasteners. The HiTex also implements locking serrations and No. 3 S-type sharpened points in order to “grab” the sheet metal with more ease. The product also features a chromate finish for corrosion resistance.
