A variety of fasteners are available in the market for several applications. Chipboard screws are the fasteners that are available various grades and specifications. These can be purchased from large hardware stores. Chipboard Screws comprise of ‘grippers’, commonly known as nibs. Chipboard Zinc Screws are fabricated from zinc, yellow zinc and black oxide. The cost of screws varies according to the size and the material used in the screws.
A Particle board is commonly known as Chipboard. Sometimes, it is also called engineered wood i.e. man-made wood due to its composition. It is made from the wood particles and synthetic resin. High density of these boards can be attributed to the resin content. The strength of the board is directly proportional to its density. When we talk of moisture, the capability of board to absorb moisture is indirectly proportional to density. One of the main reasons for growing popularity of engineered Particle Boards is their cost effectiveness.
The major disadvantage of using particle board is that due to frequent exposure to moisture it is may undergo expansion. In the case of particle boards it is suggested that their outdoor use should be avoided unless it is protected with appropriate coating. Nevertheless, it is used in kitchens and bathrooms but it is coated with vinyl. All the characteristics of particle board suggest that chipboard screws are the best choice to grip the board rather than normal screws.
Chipboard screws are known for their better grip due to a deep thread. These are preferred as they account for no splitting. This becomes possible solely because of thin shafts. These screws come up with one more advantage of self-tapping. Self-tapping does not require any kind of drilling to make a hole.
