Warning labels, mandatory labels, prohibition labels, and many more besides – each and every one helps to ensure safety in the workplace. And it’s also crucial that electronic devices and assemblies are labeled. You too can lead the way when it comes to safety with various signs and labels from the ETTINGER range – including conductor labels, type labels, CE markings, warning...

Surfaces on connection parts are exposed to a whole range of aggravating elements and have to be resistant to: Mechanical strain such as vibrations and scratches Chemical stress from salt water, acid rain, and so on UV radiation Extreme temperature changes Solvents such as oil and gasoline This is where surface finishing comes in. It is a process that provides connection parts with new...

Self-tapping screws create their own internal thread as they are screwed in, eliminating the need for extra steps and cutting back on costs. Other benefits: Lower tool costs as there is no need for a drill or thread tap Internal thread does not need to be inspected Surface pressure creates good electrical contact Usually no need for additional screw-locking devices, as the internal thread...

Screws are available with a range of head shapes that don’t just look different from one another – they also have different properties and advantages. Below, we’ve given you an overview of the screw head shapes available at ETTINGER. Flat Head = Mushroom Head = Round Head = Pan Head Used where the substrate must not be penetrated Lies on the surface, not flush with the material...

The ISO 7046-compliant countersunk screw doesn’t just look great – it also sits flush with the material around it and thanks to its black zinc plating it is barely visible when it is used on black surfaces. Please note: In metal structures, the taper of the head must be pre-milled to enable the screw to be countersunk. A key advantage of this product is its electroplated surface treatment...

The screw drive refers to the shape of the screw head used to set a tool. The first – and therefore oldest – type of screw drive is the slot, or slotted screw drive. The number of drive systems that have come into being has grown as the years have passed. But what exactly is the difference between a Phillips and a Pozidriv screw drive? Take a look below for an overview of the screw...

Not all plastics are the same. When using a plastic product, it’s vital to consider its chemical composition and a range of different properties such as the temperature resistance it offers – because not every plastic can withstand sub-zero or high temperatures. If temperatures are too low Resilience under load decreases dramatically Material failure or breakage can happen as a result...

Plastics play an indispensable role in electronic and electrical applications. But why is this? It’s all down to their superb electrical properties, which allow them to be fully insulating, electrically conductive, or somewhere in between. Pure, unmodified plastics are not conductive. Electrical insulating properties High resistance to electrical current Prevent injuries and material damage...

In an increasing number of countries, coronavirus restrictions are being eased more and more: shops are reopening, employees are returning to their offices, and production is being restarted. In light of these developments, distancing and hygiene rules remain ever more important: Keeping physical distance Washing your hands regularly Disinfecting your hands Wearing a face mask Our...

The UL94 standard is a method for assessing and classifying the flammability of plastics. It originates in the USA and has now become established worldwide. UL stands for Underwriters Laboratories, an independent organization that developed the test method. Vertical flammability test (VB) With the VB (Vertical Burn) test method, the material is tested in a vertical position. Horizontal...
