  • Designed for carbon steels, alloyed steels, brass & free machining materials, including stainless steel that require the most economical tool life.
  • Ideal for materials that produce stringy chips, such as steels, stainless steels and plastics.
  • Spiral fluted taps are recommended for tapping blind holes where the chips are pulled out of the hole towards the tap shank instead of pushing them to the bottom of the hole.


  • Bright surface finish.
  • 2.5 threads chamfered.
  • DIN lengths with ANSI shank dimensions.
