PEM - PESERT self- clinching stainless steel flush nuts for sheet metal




 PEM’ s new stainless-steel flush nuts for thin sheet metals will provide thread strength incomparable to the competition. This solution is best suited for application attachment where thin sheet metals require load-bearing threads that are stronger than tapped holes. They can be installed before sheet bending and forming, providing threads for mating hardware where otherwise would have been inaccessible. The hexagonal head and clinch technology ensures torsional strength and high axial in service. The nuts install permanently, and will never loosen or fall out. Resulting in surfaces being unmarred to ensure the functional and cosmetic qualities of assemblies.

The product line includes PEMSERT F™ 300 Series stainless steel types for installation into steel or aluminum sheets and PEMSERT F4™ heat-treated 400 Series stainless steel versions specifically designed for installation into 300 Series stainless steel sheets.


Available thread sizes:

#2-56 through ¼-20

M2 through M6
