E-Z Coil™ inserts — also known as wire or helical threaded inserts — quickly repair or reinforce tapped holes in soft metals. Made from 18-8 stainless steel wire, these helical coil inserts are corrosion resistant and can withstand temperatures up to 800°F.
E-Z Coil™ helical insert coils are manufactured by forming the stainless steel wire into a diamond shape and then winding it into a spring. Before being installed, the insert diameters of these stong internal threads are larger than the tapped hole. During installation, the insert diameter of the helical coil insert is reduced, allowing the insert to thread into the hole. Once properly installed, the radial pressure of the released insert holds the insert firmly in place.
