About Powercoil

Powercoil Screw Thread Inserts are used to create high performance threads and to repair damaged threads. The unique design of Powercoil inserts creates superior, stronger thread joints whose compound performance cannot be reproduced by any other fastening system.

Manufactured from 18/8 austenitic stainless steel, Powercoil Wire Thread Inserts provide high strength internal threads that resist the effects of temperature and corrosion. The smooth surface finish of Powercoil inserts also eliminates friction-induced thread erosion.

Available in two basic forms, free running or screw locking, Powercoil Screw Thread Inserts are much lighter and less expensive than any other equivalent type of screw thread insert. The compact size of Powercoil inserts also means that they can be incorporated into existing designs where no previous provision has been made.

The Powercoil Wire Thread Insert System includes a complete range of:

  • Free Running, Screw Locking, Strip Feed Inserts
  • Over 140 Thread Repair Kits
  • STI Hand & Machine Taps
  • Manual & Automatic Installation Tools, Tang Break Tools
  • Thread Gauges & Removal Tools

Features & Benefits

Powercoil Screw Thread Inserts:

  • Increase quality and performance whilst reducing overall product cost
  • Create internal threads in which wear due to thread friction is virtually eliminated. Useful in applications where repeated assembly & disassembly is required
  • Protect tapped threads against failures due to stripping, seizing, corrosion and wear
  • Create internal threads with greatly improved distribution of residual stress loading
  • Compensate for pitch and flank angle errors
  • Can generally be introduced into existing designs where no previous provision has been made
  • Make it possible to use thinner sections or lighter parent materials without sacrificing thread strength
