Metal Compression Limiters provide and maintain joint integrity of a bolted plastic assembly. They are designed to protect the plastic components of an assembly from the compressive loads generated when a bolt is tightened to its recommended value, thereby ensuring that the joint remains intact throughout the life of the product. SPIROL’s Compression Limiters have been designed for easy installation, and provide excellent retention and anti-rotation.
SPIROL offers a comprehensive line of split seam, molded in, oval and solid wall designs to accommodate different compressive loads, positional tolerances and installation methods for bolts ranging in size from M4 to M10 and #8 to 3/8”.
