*DELTA PT is registered a trademark of EJOT.
DELTA PT, designed for thermoplastics, has special threads and roots.
The threads go into thermoplastics sharply and reduce damage of thermoplastics.
Because it can be tightened repeatedly, it is great for recycling and maintaining your products.
Also, it prevents crack in boss and needs no metallic inserts which is costly to put in and take out.
Additionally, it requires thinner wall of boss and your products could weigh less.
- Displaced material is accommodated entirely into the specially designed root.
- High flank coverage and minor contact pressure
- Less radial stress and frictional resistance
- Damage free material forming

- Due to the straight designed roots, there is not enough space for displaced material, causes crack in boss.
- Small flank coverage and high contact pressure
- High radial stress and frictional resistance
