Clarendon Specialty Fasteners offer a comprehensive range of Fixed, Floating and Through composite panel fasteners from trusted manufacturers. The moulded-in type insert can be installed in all types of panel. They are retained in the panel by encapsulating the fastener within the panel using an epoxy adhesive. With mould-in inserts, several design considerations need to be addressed prior to installation. Important criteria include the selection of a head diameter which provides sufficient bearing area in the face skin for the size of the bolt or screw to be used and the determination of the fastener length for maximum strength.
Most potted insert applications require the fastener to be installed flush with the face skin. The insert comes with a tab system to facilitate positioning while potting and maintaining that position during cure cycle.
