SPIROL, a global manufacturer of precision-engineered components for fastening and joining, has introduced the new CL220 Split Seam – Extra Clearance Compression Limiter to its extensive product offerings. This post-mold installed Compression Limiter has a flexible diameter to accommodate wide hole tolerances, while the seam is designed to prevent interlocking in the free state.
The spring force that’s generated during installation provides self-retention of the Limiter within the plastic assembly. Once installed, the CL220 provides a minimum clearance of 1mm over the bolt diameter; 0.5mm greater clearance than that provided by SPIROL’s CL200 Split Seam Compression Limiter.
The larger inner-diameter (ID) also accommodates the protective coating of ArmorGalv — a zinc alloy thermal diffusion coating that provides up to 1000-plus hours of salt spray protection for highly corrosive applications, such as marine, automotive, mining, and industrial manufacturing. The benefits of ArmorGalv include no insignificant surfaces on the Limiter and that the entire ID receives full coating and protection.
SPIROL also offers a variety of formed and machined Compression Limiters to accommodate different compressive loads, positional tolerances, and installation methods.
The standard formed Compression Limiters include:
- Series CL200 Split Seam, CL220 Split Seam – Extra Clearance
- CL350 Split Seam – Heavy Wall
- CL400 Split Seam – Oval
- CL460 Molded-In – Oval and the Series CL500 Molded-In designs
The standard machined options include:
- CL600 Aluminum and CL601 Headed Aluminum Compression Limiters
- CL800 Brass and CL801 Headed Brass Compression Limiters
