FASTENERS FOR USE IN STAINLESS STEEL SHEETS
One of the very basics of self-clinching is that the fastener must always be harder than the host sheet to ensure
proper and permanent installation. This is particularly challenging when installing fasteners into stainless steel sheets.
Therefore we have developed this line of specially hardened stainless steel fasteners for installation into stainless
steel. Refer to “Dos and Don’ts” on page 14 for further information.
Fasteners made from precipitation hardened grade stainless including A286 stainless are particularly useful in
applications such as outdoor equipment, medical devices and chemical and food processing equipment or anywhere
corrosive element exposure is possible.

Type SP™ PEM 300® nuts provide strong
load-bearing internal threads in stainless
steel sheets as thin as .030” / 0.8 mm PAGE 3

Type TP4™ pins provide an unthreaded
solution for a wide range of positioning, pivot
and alignment applications. - PAGE 9

Types SO4™ and BSO4™ standoffs provide
internally threaded fasteners for stacking or
spacing applications - PAGES 4 and 5

Type PFC4™ provides a self-clinching, tool
only, captive screw solution for stainless
steel sheets. (See page 16 for other nonclinching captive screw solutions) - PAGE 10

Type TSO4™ Through hole threaded
standoffs for clinching into thinner sheets
than Type SO4. Install into sheets as thin as
.025” / 0.63 mm. Also, threaded at the barrel
end minimizing length of screw required PAGE 6

Types A4™ and LA4™ internally threaded
nuts allow for mating hole misalignment
and locking threads if desired. - PAGE 11
Type SFP™ SpotFast® fasteners provide
a solution for flush “face-on-face” sheet
attachment in stainless steel - PAGE 12

Types FH4™ and FHP™ offer externally
threaded attachment points in two stainless
materials, depending on the level of corrosion
resistance required. (See page 16 for other
non-clinching stud solutions) - PAGE 7

Type F4™ fasteners are ideal for flush
applications where a stainless steel sheet
requires load-bearing threads - PAGE 13
Material and finish specifications - PAGE 14

SGPC™ Swaging Collar Studs can install
into most panel material and accommodate
multiple panels as long as the total thickness
does not exceed the maximum sheet
thickness - PAGE 8

Installation - PAGES 15 - 20
Performance data - PAGES 21 - 23
