For those who work with MDF/HDF boards, the HECO-UFIX is an essential fastener. MDF boards are very often used in the manufacture of furniture, models, moulds and kitchens. An MDF board consists of wood fibres, which are moulded into a mat and compressed into a board. Driving a conventional screw into the end will cause the board to split and render it unusable. HECO developed the MDF screw HECO-UFIX for perfect results with this material. The specially shaped MDF drilling point centres the screw as soon as it is positioned on the surface and clears out a lot of material during driving. Cutting ribs on the point reduces MDF board splitting and no bulges appear in the surface when screws are screwed into the end of the board.
