Thread Taps | Pipe Thread Taps

High-speed steel (HSS) pipe thread taps are designed to remove material from a pre-drilled or punched hole. As it is installed, the tap produces threads within the hole, which can then be used with bolts or screws to hold two objects or materials together.

High-Speed Steel Tap Advantages

High-speed steel is the material of choice for taps and dies or other cutting tools. Compared to traditional carbon steel, it can withstand higher temperatures, abrasion, and high-friction applications without losing any hardness. These characteristics allow high-speed steel taps to cut quicker and more accurately compared to taps made from other resistance.

All Metric & Multistandard’s metric DIN 158 pipe thread taps are manufactured from high-quality high-speed steel to deliver superior operations.
