Composite Press-Fit Inserts

Marketing Masters’ composite press fit inserts are used to attach and fasten honeycomb sandwich structures, such as airline floor panels. These composite inserts are commonly referred to as “floor panel inserts” because they are widely used in aircraft manufacturing to fasten floor panels to the aircraft structure. However, they can be used anywhere through hole fasteners with high load carrying capabilities are required.
 
Each Marketing Masters composite insert is capable of carrying a more than 2,000 lb. load, depending on the panel type. Made from Torlon® a high-tech composite thermoplastic (see below), our inserts are corrosion free, light weight, high strength and low cost.
