European Patent Issued for VRT
European Patent Office grants TFC patent on VRT® Technology!
We are pleased to announce that our VRT® (Vibration Resistant Thread) technology has received patent protection by the European Patent Office. The patent (Europe Patent No. 2286097) will be recognized in the following countries: Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, UK, Belgium, Switzerland, Poland, Turkey, Czech Republic, Hungary, and Luxembourg.
This is in addition to our VRT® patents in the USA, Taiwan, Australia, Mexico, and Canada.
The patented VRT® Technology significantly increases a screw's back-out resistance in lap applications. This reduces the chance of leaks caused by the screw loosening from vibration and expansion and contraction of the panel. They are available on BLAZER® self-drilling screws made of carbon steel and stainless steel with a variety of long-life head styles, including stainless cap, zinc cap and nylon molded.
