- Brass Finserts for Plastic
Finserts provide strong metal threads for wood, composition board and thermoplastics such as nylon, polystyrene, cellulose acetate and cycolac.

Available with one, two or three fins for varying material thickness, Finserts prevent splintering, splitting and thread pullout.
