Color MAX High Performance Taps


Material Specific Color Band Taps
High Performance Taps are designed and manufactured for
successful threading in a variety of part materials for high and
low volume applications. These materials include aluminum,
stainless steels, nickel alloys, titanium alloys, mold steels,
irons, brass, bronze and plastics. Special geometries, tap
surface treatments and premium steels interact to offer the

highest level of performance.
Special tool geometry creates less torque during tapping which
allows better removal of chips so the tool can run cooler. CNC
necked design taps increase the flow of coolant to the cutting
teeth and reduces surface contact between the tool and the
workpiece for more efficient threading.
