Quality protection in the harshest of environments

Stainless Steel is the only true assurance for protection against our corrosive coastline, fall out and emissions from industrial stacks, marine and other chemically polluted environments.

Buildex® Stainless Steel screws conform to the Australian standard AS3566.2.
Used in conjunction with sheeting & cladding manufacturer’s guidelines Buildex® offers you a variety of Stainless Steel screws suitable for use in metal, timber and aluminium host materials.

No other Australian screw manufacturer can offer the full variety of stainless steel screws required to meet with today’s environmental, structural and aesthetic requirements.

The grades of Stainless Steel used to manufacture and market are tabled below. Buildex® has been the leading Australian manufacturer of Stainless Type17 screws for wood and Taptite thread forming screws for a number of years. More recently Buildex® has introduced a range of Stainless Teks® screws for roofing, cladding and other applications.

The Buildex® new range of Stainless Steel Teks® has led the way again, with the innovation of robotically welding either a Carbon steel or Martensitic drill tips to its 300 series (A2) Teks. All Stainless Teks® have a top coat of Ruspert to give an extra layer of protection and lubrication to enhance their drill performance.
