Insert Nut for Extremely Hard Materials (IN23)

SKU: IN23 Categories: ,

Insert nuts IN23 are suitable for use in extremely hard types of materials including wood, plastic and metal. They are hard-wearing inserts with fine external thread that are specially designed to provide heavy-duty screw connections in harder materials such as metals, plastics and thermosetting resins.

The three blind cutting holes remove host material whilst also acting as a reservoir to store swarf during installation preventing any fine chips or curls from dropping into sensitive equipment / components whilst the insert’s tapered bottom allows for easy installation by hand, without the need for specialist tools, making it ideal for a range of home, office and industrial uses.

Once installed, the insert creates an extremely strong screw connection, highly resistant to vibration and high torque pull-out.

IN23 Insert Nut for Hard Wood, Metal and Plastic are supplied in RoSH-compliant Zinc Plated Steel, as well as Stainless Steel for corrosion protection.

Available in a range of thread sizes to meet your fastening needs, including M4 to M10 – see product chart below for full specifications. Non standard sizes are available to order.

Non-standard sizes, materials and finishes are available to order as specials, including small volume manufacture, modifications and custom parts made to drawings.
