Choosing the proper heat treat for screwdriver tools is important in achieving long tool life. Different applications, different operators, and different power tools require different heat treats. We offer a choice of three heat treat hardness levels in many or our screwdriver bits to match the particular customer's application. These heat treats are specified by a letter suffix as follows:

        X - The hardest heat treat available (this is also the default value)
         I  - Intermediate hardness
        R - Lowest Hardness

Selecting the heat treat best suited for a particular application may require some trial and error. The proper heat treat depends on the failure mode. If the bit breaks or shatters, select a bit with less hardness. If the failure mode is wear, select a harder bit. Many times both breakage and wear may occur within the same application. This can be due to a number of factors such as a different operator, different torque values, and different power tool settings.

In general, high torque application require "R" heat treats to withstand twisting and resist breakage. The "X" heat treat is most suitable for low torque applications, particularly if hardened screws are used.

If a failure occurs, a change in hardness may result in better service. The "X" heat treat is most common and should be selected unless the specifics of an application or an existing problem would suggest using "I" or "R" hardness.

To specify a particular heat treat, we simply add a letter suffix to the part number. For example to specify "X hardness" in a #2 Phillips insert, the part number would be the standard 10 digit number 1011SBnnnnX. Not all bits are available in all heat treats. Special heat treats can be supplied for a particular application. Contact us for specific recommendations. If no number is appended to the 10 digit part number then the heat treat default value is "X" and the price shown is based on the "X" heat treat.

If you have a requirement for a hand driver / screwdriver or many hand drivers / screwdrivers, insert bit or many insert bits, just go to the page in this web site dealing with that specific product.
