  4. The Unique 12.7mm Huck® Magna-Lok®26/01/2016

    Image for story - The Unique 12.7mm Huck® Magna-Lok®

    The new Huck 12.7mm Magna-Lok is a versatile, hole filling, blind fastener with a wide grip range that accommodates large variations in joint thickness, and provides exceptional gap closure.

    Its unique 360 internal locking technology mechanically locks the pin to the sleeve. The expansion, of the structural blind rivet during installation, fills the hole which causes good resistance to liquid penetration*.

    Bigger Size, Bigger Benefits

    Fewer Fasteners Needed (vs. small diameter fasteners)

    The 12.7mm Magna-Lok's larger size has the potential to reduce the amount of fasteners needed, hence facilitating in the production of lighter weight products and reducing inventory, re-work and costs.

    Wider Grip Range

    Bigger size accommodates larger variations in joint thickness.

    Excellent Gap Closure

    Larger gap closure capability.

    Increased Shear and Tensile Strength

    Resistance to failure is greatly increased.

    Unmatched Installation Speed

    Bigger size does not alter Magna-Lok's quick visual inspection for correct installation, and flush pin break eliminates grinding and filing, leaving a smooth and even surface.

    Large Hole Filling

    The sleeve expands during installation for excellent joint tightness and provides resistance to liquid ingress*.

    *Individual fastener benefits will vary depending on the application they are used in.

  5. The Brand New Huck A4 (316) Marine Grade Stainless Steel Magna-Lok® - Engineered for Superior Corrosion15/12/2015

    The Brand New Huck A4 (316) Marine Grade Stainless Steel Magna-Lok® - Engineered for Superior Corrosion

    The new Huck A4 (316) Stainless Steel, 6.35mm (1/4") diameter, Magna-Lok blind fastener retains all the features of the standard version of the Magna-Lok structural blind fastener; including a wide grip range to accommodate large variations in joint thickness, 360 internal locking technology enabling the pin to be mechanically locked to the sleeve, expansion during installation for excellent joint tightness and high-quality resistance to liquid penetration; the 316 A4 stainless steel Magna-Lok fastener also offers corrosion resistance beyond anything else in the Huck blind fastener range.

    Referred to as "marine grade" due to its preferred use in the construction of boats, ships, oil and gas rigs, and off-shore wind farm towers, 316 is an austenite stainless steel which contains 18 percent chromium and 12 percent nickel. Steel is considered stainless when its chromium content is at a minimum of 10.5 per cent. Therefore, a higher content will result in an enhanced corrosion resistance. Un-reactive chromium III oxide can form on a component's surface, protecting the metal beneath from the environment. Nickel further increases the corrosion resistance of the resultant alloy.
