XPC FASTENER
THE STEALTH FIXING FOR TUBULAR STRUCTURES
JUST PUT IT IN AND TIGHTEN IT UP
XPC USES PURE FRICTION  TO  CREATE A ROBUST, LOAD BEARING END-JOINT IN METAL TUBE

NO PLUGS, RIBS, CLAMPS, U-BOLTS, CRIMPING, FILLING, WELDING, DRILLING, THREADING, FLANGES,
THRU-BOLTING, RIVETING, ADHESIVE
OR ANY MODIFICATION TO THE TUBE

XPC FASTENER HOLDING STRENGTH IS LIMITED ONLY BY THE STRENGTH OF THE TUBE

XPC FASTENER

‘STEALTH’ FIXING FOR TUBE


XPC ADVANTAGE 1

An XPC joint needs no tube threading, drilling, welding, weld-affected zone, no stress raisers, flanges, thru-bolts, hoop bolts, rivets, brackets, filling, adhesives
All you need is tube and XPC

XPC ADVANTAGE 2

Predictable strength independent of the length of engagement

XPC ADVANTAGE 3

Quick and simple to fit - tube structures can be create on-site by semi-skilled personnel

XPC ADVANTAGE 4

XPC relies only on friction between smooth surfaces only and can be used on materials that are too weak to accept threading

XPC ADVANTAGE 5

XPC disassembly is super-fast, since XPC can be withdrawn as soon as the preload is released and the locking tapers freed off

XPC ADVANTAGE 6

XPC helps in dismantling and overhaul situations - the same hole can be re-used many times

XPC ADVANTAGE 7

XPC is self-centring in the tube and achieves and exceptional level of concentricity

XPC ADVANTAGE 8

XPC will always hold the tube perpendicular to any counterface, no matter what the end face condition of the tube.

XPC ADVANTAGE 9

XPC holding strength is more accurately computable and achieved more quickly than any other tube  fixing.

XPC ADVANTAGE 10

XPC coatings or treatments on the tapered regions of collar and stud eliminate internal lubrication

XPC ADVANTAGE 11

XPC is totally discrete - tube can be finish plated or painted  prior to fabrication, with no requirement for welding

XPC ADVANTAGE 12

XPC is totally discrete - tube can be finish plated or painted  prior to fabrication, with no requirement for welding

XPC ADVANTAGE 13

XPC ‘FAILSAFE’ will not break loose from the tube even if the nut is removed
