Agrati includes in its catalog a wide range of special products with advanced technical features. These special screws are produced through a modern heat treatment process that allows for tempering them in compliance with the most important and restrictive European and international standards and regulations. These specific types of screws can also be coated both internally and externally with various materials to increase their corrosion resistance, modify the friction coefficient, and enhance their sealing function.
In recent years, there has been a significant increase in demand for this type of product from the automotive market, including major OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers. This has led Agrati to create a specific portfolio from which to choose the best product to meet their needs.
