English term or phrase: type AB (viti)
montaggio di tende

"Screw #8 x 1/4 AB Pan Phillips"

ho trovato che AB significa:

"A" Sheet Metal Screws

Sheet metal screws with (a) sharp-pointed ends; and (b) fewer threads per inch than type AB screws; and (c) deeper threads with better gripping power than type AB. The Industrial Fasteners Institute incorrectly labels type A an “obsolete” thread though it is universally preferred in 18-8 stainless over type AB, especially by the marine industry.

"AB" Sheet Metal Screws

Sheet metal screws with pointed ends similar to type-A screws and thread dimensions similar to type-B. Type AB screws are seldom used in stainless.
