Installation Tips and Best Practices for Our Press-In Threaded Inserts

When considering the installation of E-Z Press™ press-in threaded inserts in thermoset plastics, it's important to understand the characteristics of thermoset plastics compared to thermoplastics. Thermoset plastics, unlike thermoplastics, strengthen when heated and cannot be remolded or reheated after their initial forming. This makes the choice of threaded inserts and the installation process crucial to avoid damaging the material.

E-Z LOK™ E-Z Press™ Inserts are designed for easy press-in installation, minimizing the risk of splintering or splitting the plastic. They are available in various lengths and internal thread sizes, and in materials like brass and stainless steel, suitable for thermoset plastics.
