Advanced Benefits of Zinc-Plated Threaded Inserts

There are numerous advantages associated with steel insert nuts. Depending on your application, threaded inserts for metal can provide significant benefits over standard rivet inserts. Some of the main advantages associated with steel nutserts, include:
  • Superior Corrosion Resistance – The zinc coating that is applied over the steel threaded inserts acts as a sacrificial barrier to corrosion. In other words, the zinc must be eaten away before the steel can corrode, which can take several decades depending on the application.
  • Advanced Strength – The steel structure of our threaded inserts provides increased strength over plastic or wood inserts.
  • Vibration Resistant Qualities – The vibration resistant nature of steel nutserts allows the fastener to remain in place even in shaky environments.
  • Incredibly Easy to Install – Zinc-plated threaded inserts do not require any special preparation prior to installation. All that you need is a punched or drilled hole and you’re done!
