The coating lets the company&rsquo;s HuckBolts and collars sustain up to 1,000 hr of salt-spray testing &mdash; with no painting &mdash; while those only coated with zinc handle only 100 hr. While HuckBolts have always had a zinc coating, the fastener collars have always been the weak point because of the swaging process.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/fasteners/corrosion-resistant-fasteners" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/fasteners/corrosion-resistant-fasteners#comments Fasteners Mon, 23 Jun 2014 18:18:00 +0000 38601 at http://machinedesign.com Self-Clinching Standoffs for Ultrathin Stainless Steel http://machinedesign.com/fasteners/self-clinching-standoffs-ultrathin-stainless-steel <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Type TSO4 self-clinching stainless-steel standoffs are designed for stacking or spacing components to or from ultrathin stainless-steel panels.&nbsp; The specially hardened fasteners permanently install into stainless-steel sheets as thin as 0.025 in./0.63 mm with only a single mating screw required for final component attachment.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/fasteners/self-clinching-standoffs-ultrathin-stainless-steel" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/fasteners/self-clinching-standoffs-ultrathin-stainless-steel#comments Fasteners Mon, 23 Jun 2014 18:11:00 +0000 38581 at http://machinedesign.com
