  • Tapered tail for ease of hole entry
  • Expands radially during installation to ensure maximum hole fill
  • Lower in-place costs than welding or nail rivets
  • Hot tin dipped brass option for ease of soldering and good electrical continuity
  • Stainless Steel option for applications subject to high temperatures or corrosion
  • Placed using a unique repetition mandrel system for high speed assembly
  • Can be bowl fed for larger volume applications using automated equipment
