Fasteners For Hard Panels



Type SH™ and HFLH™ Hard Panels Nuts / Studs

  • Installs into thin, harder, high strength steel materials.
  • Allows overall weight reduction for all vehicles.
  • Addresses environmental / recycle concerns.
  • Provides lower installed cost.
  • Allows component standardization.

    Type SH
    Type HFLH

microPEM® TackScrew™ Fasteners


  • Simple, press-in installation for secure attachment.
  • Twist out (unscrews) if removal is necessary.
  • Replaces micro screws, eliminating installation issues including:
         - Cost of locking patch
         - Cost of threaded insert or tapped hole
         - Cost of driver bits
         - Cost of rework due to cross-thareding and driver bit "cam-out"
  • If removed, fastener can be reinstalled one time using permanent thread locking adhesive.
  • Can be installed automatically for high volume applications.

THFE™ Heavy Duty Studs For Thin Sheets


  • Enlarged head diameter reduces stress on panel.
  • Thicker head allows for larger hole in attached panels.
  • Clinch design provides high-strength in sheets as thin as .031" / 0.8 mm.
  • Recommended for use in steel or aluminum sheets HRB (Rockwell "B" Scale) 85 or less and HB (Hardness Brinell) 165 or less.

F4™ PEMSERT® Self-Clinching Flush Fasteners


  • Ideal for flush applications where a thin stainless steel sheet requires load-bearing threads but still must remain smooth.
  • Installs completely flush into thin stainless steel sheets up to HRB 88 / HB 183.
  • Can be installed before bending sheet.

TSO4™ Self-Clinching Standoffs


  • For installation into ultra-thin stainless steel sheets.
  • As thin as .025" / 0.63mm.
  • Permanently mounted in the thin sheet.
  • Threaded at the barrel end minimizing length of screw required.

microPEM® TackSert® Pins


  • Secure panels to common magnesium die casting materials such as AZ91D. Also appropriate for attaching panels to plastics such as ABS.
  • Simple, press-in installation. Does not require heat or ultrasonics.
  • Alternative to micro screws, eliminating many of the costs associated with threaded hardware.
  • Top sheet can be any material.
  • Low profile head.

SFN™ Spinning Flare Nut


  • Rotates freely in sheet.
  • Assembly time reduction and cost.
  • Reduction in loose hardware.
  • Installs into any sheet hardness.
  • RoHS compliant.

Heat Sink Mounting Fastener System


  • Screw and spring mount together permanently into the heat sink.
  • Receptacle nut mounts permanently to the PC board.
  • Scew can not be overtightened.
  • Provides even, constant contact of heat sink to chip component.
  • Allows removal of heat sink if desired.
  • RoHS compliant.
