Does anyone have any information on NPT threaded inserts for plastic (not sure on material yet, but nylon and valox are early favorites)? I need a source, and hole sizes for press, thermal or ultrasonic insertion.
Help greatly appreciated.
If anyone else comes looking for NPT threaded inserts, I just wanted to mention what my solution was for this. There are plenty of other threaded inserts out there, but not very many for pipe threads unless you're willing to buy stuff from India. My customer specified local sourcing. I found some from the UK, but that was the closest. We decided to just make our own. Hex stock on a lathe, and you've got some simple to produce brass NPT through threaded inserts for molding. Producing press-in inserts is a little riskier, so we just decided to mold them in place.
Have you checked McMaster-Carr?
Or maybe Pem or E-Z Lok
Maybe you can contact them and see if they carry NPT
