The new CL220 split seam extra clearance compression limiter from SPIROL features a flexible diameter to accommodate wide hole tolerances, as well as a seam 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, which is a 0.5mm greater clearance than that provided by SPIROL’s CL200 split seam compression limiter.
The larger inner diameter also accommodates the protective coating of ArmorGalv®, a zinc alloy thermal diffusion coating that provides up to 1,000+ 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, whilst making sure the entire inner diameter receives full coating and protection.
SPIROL engineers will also review application requirements and work with a design team to recommend the best solution at the lowest total assembly cost.
