Barbed large-headed thread insert
A barbed, large headed insert available in extra short lengths in a range of thread sizes from M2 to M10.
The Microbarb ® incorporates the same features as the headed Multisert range but with a shorter overall length. This means it is optimised for pull-through applications in thin section materials due to the full size head geometry.
Larger head and barb diameter
The design incorporates a larger head and barb diameter to provide increased bearing surfaces. For larger thread sizes the back of the head is chamfered to reduce the apparent projection. Maximum thread engagement is achieved by countersinking the limited thread length at only one end.
Insert ideal for use in thin materials
The Microbarb is ideal for use in vacuum formed, rotational moulded and fabricated components in Thermoplastics but has some limitations in Thermoset materials (contactable the Tappex sales office for further details – we may recommend heat-installation instead).
MICROBARB® - SHORT LENGTH - 0006M2
REACH/RoHS compliant as per the candidate list of substances of very high concern.
Finish: Self-Colour. Special finishes to customer requirements, at extra cost.
Description: The Microbarb Multisert has larger head and barb diameter to provide increased bearing surfaces.
Application: Designed for use in thin section thermoplastic and some thermoset materials. Ideal for Vacuum formed, Rotational moulded and fabricated parts, where the insert is installed in one direction and the bolt assembled from the other end, giving maximum pull-out loading.
Hole Size: Moulded and drilled hole diameters vary dependent upon the nature of the final assembly, component geometry and plastic material. Please consult our technical department for a precise recommendation, to ensure optimum production conditions.Sizes given are for reference purposes only.
Hole Design: The hole design information is intended to indicate the approximate dimensional requirements for satisfactory installation of the insert. They should not be specified for production tooling without prior consultation with our Application Engineering Department - we accept no responsibility should the use of this information without consultation result in product failure. Please call our application engineers for assistance +44 (0) 1789 206600
Installation: This insert can be used for heat or push in installation depending on the plastic material.
