Excellent for wood/plastic composites such as Trex®
decking! The easiest and most economical hidden fastening system
for composites on the market!
Offers the least conspicuous exposure when face screwing Ipe
decking! The smallest head available in a type 316 S.S. trim
TrimTite features a self- tapping, type 17 point and an
aggressive coarse thread for superior bite into any wood
substrate. The Torx drive recess provides maximum holding power
to the drive bit resulting in more torque for denser materials.
Similar type square drive screws do not compare in performance
to the star recess of TrimTite screws. The square drive recess
tapers into the screw head which causes cam-out or stripping
when driving into dense materials. The star drive (Torx) recess
goes straight into the screw head at 90 degrees preventing any
slipping or cam-out when driving into dense materials.
The disappearing act...
When countersunk into composite decking, these screws will
virtually disappear! The trick is to drive the screw an
1/8" below the surface without pre-drilling. After
countersinking, pinch the displaced material and hit with a
hammer. This will cause the excess plastic/wood to fill
the hole making the fastener head disappear.

Stainless Steel should only be used in Ipe decking as the wood
is highly acidic and will cause a staining reaction to most
coated fasteners. Pre-drilling and counter-boring is also highly
recommended to prevent screw breakage and wood splitting.
Finish work and trim/casework are also good applications for
