STUD, SELF-CLINCHING GENERAL SPECIFICATION FOR
|Publication Date:||27 April 2012|
This specification covers the requirements for self-clinching studs, which are permanently attached to a structure by embedding them into the structure. Push-out, pull-out resistance results from cold flow of the structural material into recesses or grooves provided beneath the head of the stud.
Self-clinching studs covered by this specification are intended to provide permanent male threads in thin sheet materials, which can be installed quickly and easily.
