PEM self clinching nuts offer a cost effective method of installing metric and imperial threads into all types of sheet and cast metal.
Self clinch Nuts offer benefits over rivet nuts (also known as riv nuts) or rivet bushes (also known as Hank bushes).
Compared to rivet nuts PEM self clinch fasteners offer a lower rear side protrusion and improved torque to turn characteristics.
When compared to rivet bushes PEM self clinch nuts offer improved performance in terms of torque to turn and push-out.
In addition when installed a self clinch fastener is below flush on the face side giving much improved cosmetics compared to a rivet bush which should be be peened over on the face side during installation. Last of all Self clinching nuts will work in almost any thickness of sheet compared to rivet bushes which are extremely sensitive to sheet thickness and hence require a much larger inventory.
