Carbon Steel Solid Threaded Insert Advantages

There are many ideal advantages to adding solid threaded inserts to soft metals like aluminum, magnesium, and cast iron. Some of the main benefits of adding carbon steel solid threaded inserts include:
  • Easy to install: solid threaded inserts install with standard tools, simply drill, tap and thread like any ordinary fastener (no special taps or installation tools are necessary)
  • Strength: carbon steel solid threaded inserts are screw machined out of solid steel for a stronger overall product
  • Standard OD Threads: solid threaded inserts for metal permit the use of standard drills and taps
  • Self-Locking: pre-applied adhesive activates upon installation
  • Vibration Resistant: adhesive secures the carbon steel solid threaded insert into place so it won’t back out
  • Seals against Liquids/Gases: solid threaded inserts are pressurized up to 6,000 psi.
