Round Standoffs

Round Standoffs
Round Standoffs
Round Standoffs are a cylindrical, mechanical device which has a partial or complete internal thread, used to hold two components at a given distance from each other.
Round Standoffs are usually chosen over spacers when longer sizes are required. Round standoffs are less common than hex, used in applications where wrenching of the standoff is not required. Aluminum is popular for its light weight/ strength compromise. It is nonmagnetic, performs well in severe temperatures, and has insulating properties. Brass is used in making high-quality standoffs. It is conductive, resists corrosion, and is non-magnetic. It is costlier and heavier than aluminum and is usually plated zinc or nickel. Steel is used in applications requiring greater strength, but it is heavier than aluminum and does not resist corrosion like aluminum or brass
