End of Life Notice for Shoulder Screw SS-13.2
Issue Date: 2023/10/03

We must inform our valued customers that 3M, the manufacture of "Fastener Adhesive SG2451J" used in our screw SS-13.2 with Fastener Adhesive, has announced its discontinuation. As indicated in the following document, we were informed that 3M will NOT be able to accept any final orders, and the supply of this material will be discontinued immediately. This is not the usual product discontinuation procedure, so we are unable to follow our typical transition process. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our customers.

For all open orders, we will continue to process them without any changes. 3M has not provided us with a recommended alternative for SG2451J, and there is no alternative available for SS-13.2.

We are currently investigating suitable alternatives. For any future orders of heat sinks/assemblies incorporating SS-13.2, we will accept orders based on the inventory we currently have in stock.

Regarding future specifications, we kindly request you consider transitioning to standard screw (SS-13.2-4.2-M3-4.2) without Fastener Adhesive. For customers who require Fastener Adhesives, please reach out to our sales team for further assistance.

Standard screw without Fastener Adhesive: SS-13.2-4.2-M3-4.2
※There are no changes to the dimensions of the screw itself.

If you have any questions or require further information on this matter, please contact our sales team.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this issue, please do not hesitate to contact our sales team. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your continued support.
