SPIROL Introduces Split Seam – Extra Clearance Compression Limiters 30-NOV-2020

SPIROL is pleased to introduce the new CL220 Split Seam – Extra Clearance Compression Limiter to their expansive product offering. 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 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 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+ hours of salt spray protection for highly corrosive applications such as marine, automotive, mining and industrial manufacturing. The benefits of ArmorGalv® include that there are no insignificant surfaces on the Limiter and the entire ID receives full coating and protection.
