SPIROL is pleased to introduce the new CL220 Split Seam Compression Limiter to their expansive product offering. This post-mold installed Compression Limiter has a flexible diameter to accommodate wide hole tolerances, while the seam is 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; 0.5mm greater clearance than that provided by SPIROL’s CL200 Split Seam - Slim Profile Compression Limiter. The larger inner diameter (ID) also accommodates the protective coating of ArmorGalv®, a zinc alloy thermal diffusion coating that provides up to 1000+ 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 and that the entire ID receives full coating and protection. 

Here is a link to the new CL220 Split Seam Compression Limiter specifications.  

SPIROL offers a variety of formed and machined Compression Limiters to accommodate different compressive loads, positional tolerances and installation methods. Standard formed Compression Limiters include: Series CL220 Split Seam, CL200 Split Seam – Slim Profile, CL350 Split Seam – Heavy Wall, CL400 Split Seam - Oval, CL460 Molded-In - Oval and the Series CL500 Molded-In designs. Standard machined options include: CL6000 Aluminum and CL6100 Headed Aluminum Compression Limiters, and the CL8000 Brass and CL8100 Headed Brass Compression Limiters.
