Installation Method
   Installation Method       
   Your choices are...         
   Epoxied-In       Epoxied-in threaded inserts are epoxied in place without a tapped or molded hole. 
   Molded-In       Molded-in threaded inserts are molded-in to the plastic during the molding process. This installation method is used with thermoset plastics. 
   Pressed-In       Pressed-in threaded inserts are pressed into a hole without the use of special tools. 
   Self-tapping       Self-tapping threaded inserts are also called thread forming or thread cutting inserts. They do not require a pre-drilled or pre-molded hole.  
   Thermal       Thermal threaded inserts are placed into a pre-molded or pre-drilled hole. A heated probe heats the insert and pressure is applied. The heated insert melts the base material locally, allowing it to flow into and around the grooves and knurls. When the probe is removed, the base material solidifies and locks the insert in place. Thermal installation is not used with thermoset plastics. 
   Threaded Hole       Threaded-hole inserts can be either solid, metal-threaded inserts or precision-formed, screw-thread coils. They are installed in tapped holes. Threaded-hole inserts are often used as thread repair inserts. Heli-Coil® inserts (Emhart Teknologies) are threaded-hole inserts that are made of stainless steel and that have a diamond-shaped cross-section. They are installed into Heli-Coil tapped holes. 
   Ultrasonic       With ultrasonic threaded inserts, electronic energy is converted to a high-frequency mechanical vibration and the threaded insert is placed in a pre-molded or pre-drilled holed. The ultrasonic tool is pressed on the insert and vibration is transmitted, causing friction to melt a thin film of resin. The insert is pressed into the hole, the tool is removed, and the liquefied base material solidifies, locking the insert in place. Ultrasonic installation is not meant for use with thermoset plastics.

Material / Finish
   Metallic       
   Your choices are...         
   Aluminum       Aluminum is a bluish, silver-white, malleable, ductile, light, trivalent, metallic element that has good electrical and thermal conductivity, high reflectivity, and resistance to oxidation.  Aluminum is lighter than steel, but not as strong. 
   Brass       Brass provides good strength, excellent high-temperature ductility, reasonable cold ductility, good conductivity, excellent corrosion resistance, good bearing properties and low magnetic permeability. 
   Bronze / Copper Base Alloy       A copper base alloy is a metal with copper as the main alloying metal and one or more other metals, such as tin, zinc, or phosphorus. Silicon bronze is a typical fastener alloy. 
   Copper       Copper is a common, reddish, metallic element that is both ductile and malleable. Copper is one of the best conductors of heat and electricity. It also exhibits good corrosion resistance. 
   Inconel® / Incoloy®       Inconel® and Incoloy® (Special Metals Corporation) provide good strength and excellent resistance to oxidation and carbonization in high temperatures environments, and in many aqueous environments. These proprietary materials are used in process piping, heat exchangers, heating element sheathing and nuclear steam generator tubing. Typically, Inconel and Incoloy are used at service temperatures below 650° C (1200° F). 
   Monel®       Monel® (Special Metals Corporation) is a proprietary, high-strength material that offers resistance to a range of corrosive media such as seawater, hydrofluoric and sulfuric acids, and alkalis. 
   Steel       Steel is a commercial iron that contains carbon in any amount up to about 1.7 percent as an essential alloying constituent. Many grades of carbon and alloy steels are used as fastener materials. Steel may require coating for protection against corrosion. 
   Hardened Steel       Steel can be hardened in a number of ways. Methods include quenching techniques in oil and water, and passing the steel through induction chambers. During processing, the rapid cooling of steel freezes, traps and packs the carbon atoms inside the shrunken iron crystals. The resulting steel is very hard and brittle. Hardened steel is strong, but cannot absorb much shock or impact without breaking. 
   Stainless Steel       Stainless steel is chemical and corrosion resistant and can have relatively high stress ratings.  Many grades used in fasteners; often does not require anti-corrosion coating, but most stainless steels cannot be hardened to the same degree as carbon steels. 
   Titanium       Titanium is a hard, lustrous, silvery element that is relatively abundant in the Earth's crust. It is valued for its lightness, strength, and corrosion resistance.  Titanium is used widely in the aerospace industry and in medical products such as replacement joints. When alloyed with other metals, especially steel, titanium adds strength and oxidation resistance. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary metallic materials.

   Non-Metallic       
   Your choices are...         
   Plastic       Products are made of thermoplastic materials. 
   FRP       Fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) or fiber-reinforced polyurethane is a composite material with reinforcing fibers. It is stronger than many plastics which do not contain reinforcing additions. When made with polyurethane, FRP is a tough and wear-resistant material. 
   Nylon       Nylon is a tough, resistant, general-purpose material. It comprises several grades of polyamides and has good pressure ratings. Nylon 6/6 is commonly used with fasteners. 
   PVC       Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a widely used material that has good flexibility, a smooth surface, and nontoxic qualities. Some grades are used in food and chemical processes because of PVC’s inert nature and good resistance to chemicals such as acids and alcohols. PVC brand names include ACP® and Dural® (Alpha Gary), Geon® (Geon), Benvic® (Solvay), and Flexalloy® (Teknor Apex). 
   PVDF       Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) is a melt-processable fluropolymer. PVDF has similar properties to other fluropolymers, but provides better strength and lower creep. PVDF also offers good wear resistance and excellent chemical resistance; however, it does not perform well at elevated temperatures. Brand names include Kynar® (Elf AtoChem). 
   PTFE       Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is an insoluble compound that exhibits a high degree of chemical resistance and a low coefficient of friction. It is sometimes marketed in proprietary classes of materials such as Teflon®, a registered trademark of DuPont Dow Elastomers. 
   Rubber       Synthetic rubber includes grades such as neoprene, silicone, and Norprene® (Norton Co.). Rubber fasteners are used in specialized applications for vibration damping and silencing. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary non-metallic materials.

   Finish       
   Your choices are...         
   Anodize       Anodizing is a process for finishing aluminum alloys that uses the electrolytic oxidation of the aluminum surface to produce a protective oxide coating. The anodic coating consists of hydrated aluminum oxide and is resistant to corrosion and abrasion. Conventional coatings are 0.1 to 1.0 mils thick and are mostly transparent, but may be colored. Anodizing preserves the natural luster and texture of the metal. Anodized coatings are hard, durable, will never peel, and, under normal conditions, will never wear through. Standard and decorative colors are available. This category includes hard-coat anodizing. 
   Black Oxide       Black oxide is a conversion coating that causes virtually no dimensional change. It is a uniform, continuous conversion of the existing metal to a black form of rust. Black oxide is used on components where tight tolerances are needed. It is used mostly as a decorative coating. 
   Chrome       Chrome finish is an electroplated coating that is applied for purposes of lubricity, wear resistance, and decoration. Chrome provides a bright and highly reflective finish. 
   Galvanized       Galvanizing immerses clean, oxide-free iron or steel into molten zinc in order to apply a zinc coating that is metallurgically bonded to the iron or steel surface. The zinc coating protects the surface against corrosion in two ways. First, it shields the base metal from the atmosphere. Second, because zinc is more electronegative than iron or steel, the coating reacts with corroding agents, providing a longer service life for the part. 
   Gold       Gold plating provides total resistance to oxidation and corrosion. It is electrically conductive and can be alloyed with cobalt to produce a wear-resistant finish. 
   Nickel Plated       Nickel plating is a common form of electrolytic deposition. 
   Phosphate       Phosphate coatings are applied via the chemical or electrochemical treatment of a metal’s surface. These corrosion-resistant coatings provide a surface for the improved adhesion of primers and paints. 
   Silver       Silver is the most electrically conductive plating finish. It is used in electronic fasteners for electrical conductivity and signal transmittance. Silver oxidizes rapidly, but resists corrosion. 
   Tin       Tin plating is applied to electronic fasteners that are made of brass. 
   Zinc Plated       Zinc plating is a common form of plating that provides corrosion resistance. 
   Zinc Chromate (Yellow)       Fasteners have a yellow zinc chromate finish. 
   Other       Other unlisted finish.

Fastener Standards
   Fastener Standards       
   Your choices are...         
   AIA / NAS       Dimensional and material standards for aircraft fasteners are developed by the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) and/or its National Aerospace Standards Committee (NASC). All drawings and specifications have a NAS or NASM prefix. NAS is an acronym for National Aerospace Standards. NASM is an acronym for National Aerospace Standards, Metric. 
   AN / MS       Dimensional standards for aircraft fasteners are developed by the Aeronautical Standards Group. All drawings have a prefix of AN or MS. Products are suitable for army, navy, or air force use.  
   ASME / ANSI       The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) B18 standard specifies all ASME B18 fastener products with a single 18-digit PIN code system. Approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and adopted by the U.S. Department of Defense, the ASME B18.24 PIN system is a self-contained code that covers 788 unique B18 fastener types from 72 ASME B18 source documents. The PIN code system is fully parametric, uniform across all fastener types, and is intended as a digital alternative to the traditional plain text fastener product callout prescribed in the "Designation" or "Ordering" section of the applicable source document. 
   BS       Dimensional and material standards developed by the British Standards Institution.  Standards are designated with a BS prefix.  The British Standards International (BSI) Kitemark indicates that products are tested regularly against the requirements of an appropriate BSI standard, and that the manufacturer's quality system is assessed at least twice a year to ensure continued quality production.  
   DIN       DIN is an acronym for Deutsches Institut für Normung (DIN), a German national organization for standardization. Most metric fasteners are manufactured according to DIN standards. Although DIN predates the International Standards Organizations (ISO), DIN standards are being revised to more closely match ISO standards. Ordering DIN fasteners requires three pieces of information: the DIN identifier, which defines the style of the fastener; the material (e.g., 8.8 Steel, 316 Stainless, Hastelloy C276); and the coating or plating (if any). 
   ISO       The International Standards Organization (ISO) is a worldwide federation of national standards organizations from over 100 countries. ISO's mission is to facilitate the international exchange of goods and services, and to foster cooperation in the spheres of intellectual, technological, and economic activity. ISO standards for metric fasteners are gaining recognition rapidly. They will probably become global standards. 
   JIS       Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) is largely based on DIN; however, some standards have been modified to meet the needs of the Japanese market. Most of the fasteners used in electronic equipment manufactured in Japan comply with the JIS standard. 
   SAE       Fasteners meet standards developed by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), a worldwide organization that establishes industry standards for the testing, measurement, and design of automobiles and their components. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary fastener standards.
