NORMA Products Introduces Clip-Less, Pre-Opened, Constant Tension Clamps
WIXOM, MICH. MARCH 5, 2002. The latest constant tension clamp from Norma Products (U.S.), Inc. compensates for changes in hose diameter due to significant fluctuations in temperature, and comes pre-opened to speed assembly. It is particularly well-suited to radiator and heater hose applications. The NORMACLAMP® FBSC features a dynamic, one-piece design that seals quickly and securely, and automatically re-tightens when hose diameters increase and decrease with temperature. It also features an integrated retaining mechanism to hold the clamp open during assembly. Once the clamp has been glued to the hose, this mechanism can be easily released with a screwdriver. The FBSC clamp has a chrome-free coating that not only resists corrosion, but is very suitable for gluing. The compact, rugged clamp comes in two band widths, 15mm and 12mm, and each is available in a variety of diameters. In addition to the clip-less, pre-opened clamp, NORMA Products manufactures four other spring band (or constant tension) clamps. The standard model is also clip-less. Another has a metal clip and comes pre-opened. Ring-pull and low-profile styles are also available. Norma Products (U.S.), Inc. is a leading manufacturer of clamps and connecting systems for automotive, heavy truck and industrial applications. The company is the North American subsidiary of Rasmussen GmbH of Germany.
