PEM® Type FHP™ self-clinching, flush-head studs from PennEngineering® install permanently into thin stainless steel sheets for attachment applications requiring corrosion resistance. They help contribute to thinner, lighter designs for component assemblies in the medical, food service, and marine industries.
They mount permanently in stainless steel sheets as thin as 0.040 in. and become integral parts of an assembly with only a mating nut required for final component attachment. Made of A286 stainless steel, they can be specified for use in stainless sheets with hardness of 92 or less on the Rockwell B scale.
Thread sizes are #4-40 through #10-32 and M3 through M5. Ten standard lengths are available.
