ELESA's new STP threaded stems, designed for leveling equipment and machinery, are crafted entirely of SUPER-Technopolymer. A state-of-the-art polymeric plastic material boasts high mechanical performance, excellent resistance to chemical agents, and optimal thermal properties.

Driving the development of the range is the widespread metal-replacement trend. Impacting an increasing number of sectors today. Replacing metals with engineered plastics has been possible thanks to high performance polymers and composites. These materials, known for their mechanical strength and temperature resistance, have opened up new applications that were traditionally the domain of metals.

From the standard configuration with a polyamide or polypropylene-based technopolymer base to stems with zinc-plated steel or AISI 304 stainless steel joints, ELESA provides versatility. Options also include no-slip disks in NBR rubber or anti-vibration discs for damping vibrations, as well as variants entirely made of zinc-plated steel and different AISI classes of stainless steel, including 316L for special applications and Hygienic Design for environments requiring certified hygiene levels.

The new STP stems, available in different lengths and with threads from M8 to M12, guarantee a maximum static load resistance ranging from 2700 N for the smallest sizes up to 7000 N for the largest.

The mechanical resistance is complimented by the numerous advantages typical of the SUPER-Technopolymer category. Let’s take a closer look at them: 

  • High mechanical resistance, thanks to the inclusion of high percentages of glass fiber bonded with appropriate chemical primers to the base polymer and/or the presence of synthetic aramid fiber.
  • Resistance to corrosion and common chemical agents, making them suitable for applications requiring frequent washing, such as in the food, pharmaceutical, and medical industries, or for use in humid environments or outdoors.
  • Lightness, making transport, storage, and handling more economical, especially beneficial for applications involving mobile machines or equipment.
