Self Clinching Blind Fasteners are used in applications requiring closed end threads.
In contrast to the open version, the closed end self clinching nuts offer the advantage of a longer threaded part. The closed shank end seals the thread against external influences such as dirt, oil, moisture and protects against atmospheric corrosion. In addition, their use is generally more cost-effective than comparable fasteners with similar sealing properties, which, however, require complicated seals and special assembly procedures.
- Provide barrier against foreign matter
- Limits screw penetration thereby protecting internal components
- A sealing effect is achieved
They can be easily installed into correct sized holes with a standard press applying squeezing force between parallel surfaces.
These nuts provide a permanent blind thread in thin metal sheets.
