DORMER 3/8-16 H5 SP/PT BLUE SHARK TAP
FOR STAINLESS STEELS
Designed for superior performance through hole tapping in a wide range of Stainless Steel types.
Shark taps are manufactured from a unique powder metallurgy tool steel different from any other HSS-E-PM. This provides an unbeatable combination of toughness and edge strength, allowing the taps to perform at higher cutting temperatures while offering excellent performance and longer tool life.
- Higher impact toughness
- Increased hot hardness
- Consistent hardness
GEOMETRY AND CHAMFER
Thread geometry with optimized form generates:
- Low torque
- Excellent threads at both high and low speeds
- Superior surface finish
Super-B is a low friction TiAlN+WC/C self lubricating hard coating which prevents built-up edge and provides very high wear resistance. This is particularly advantageous when threading tough, long-chipping, heat resistant materials such as stainless steel.
- The color ring on the tool shank identifies suitability for specific materials and enables quick and easy tool selection.
- Significant reduction in axial forces and torque compared to conventional taps. This ensures problem-free threading of blind and through holes in the selected material.
- Standard ANSI shank and square with DIN overall length, for extra reach and compatibility with Inch Standard Tap Holding.
