PEM65 FHXPennEngineering’s new PEM self-clinching flush-head studs feature X-Press threads that the company says enables quick mating with push-on plastic nuts, wire tie products, or other plastic fasteners in thin metal assemblies, reducing assembly time. The company claims the thread design accommodates paints and coatings without compromising fastener’s performance.

The studs are manufactured from hardened carbon steel and finished with zinc plus clear chromate as standard and are available with 5mm and 6mm metric threads and in lengths from 10mm to 25mm.
