Specifically designed for use in soft materials, plastics, and composites, the Versa-Nut wide grip range threaded insert delivers an extra-large blind side bearing area when placed.
Providing up to twice the grip range of standard blind inserts, the Versa-Nut enables a designer to reduce the number of fasteners in an assembly. Plus, it can be installed quickly – in less than 3 seconds – with simple hand tools.
Other key features include higher pull out and torque-to-turn resistance, less radial loading of holes in brittle materials, less risk of cracking and de-lamination of composites, and the ability to cover large variations of thicknesses.
Assembly materials where the Versa-Nut is used include composite molded parts, magnesium, thin sheet aluminum, and plastics.
