Be it in industrial works or construction, corrosion is one inevitable aspect that can present several problems. It can compromise the functionality of a machine because a corroded assembly is known to give way to mechanical failures. Gutter or sidings assembled together with screws that are already rusting can also malfunction. Corrosion likewise, has an impact on the aesthetic quality of the affected material. Rust stains from mild steel screws may develop on the surface of wood even if the latter is painted. The best way to fight these problems is to use copper stainless zipscrews. These devices are coated with anti-corrosion alloy via electroplating. Although their price is a bit higher than ordinary screws, their rust resistant property means it will last longer. Since it is made to withstand moisture, it can be used in marine equipments as well as hard to access areas of a building. Its soft brown tone can also complement a variety of household items from doors to mirrors.
In contrast to nails, you cannot just use a hammer to drive screws into a surface. You would have to first drill a hole to accommodate this tiny fastener. Fortunately, you can do away with such a time-consuming effort by using zip or self tapping screws. The pointed ends of these items are sufficient to puncture different types of materials, including wood and metal. As you turn zip screws in a clockwise direction, it will advance and dig deeper into the material. The choice of self tapping fasteners generally depends on the things it will connect. A round headed screw for example, works best for items with narrow bodies while a flat headed screw can effectively connect furniture joints.
