The X-BT System

Simplify quality fastening to steel

Hilti is a leading manufacturer and supplier of quality, innovative and specialized tools and fastening systems for industries around the globe. Hilti tools are known for their exceptional quality-and the Hilti X-BT Fastening System is no exception.

Hilti’s X-BT System is a one-of-a-kind technology that makes it possible to fasten threaded studs to pre-painted steel without damaging the protective coating on either side of the base material. Designed to work on high-strength steels, as well as steels as thin as 8mm (5/16 in.), the X-BT System is ideal for use in environments in which corrosion often occurs-which is why it’s so well-suited to the offshore and shipbuilding industries.

With the X-BT System, Hilti has provided a highly effective . The X-BT threaded stud is made of grade 316 stainless steel and comes with an (optional) sealing washer, giving it long-lasting durability; and because the flat tip of the X-BT stud prevents through-penetration of the base material, reworking and recoating the base materials is rendered unnecessary, saving you time and money. In fact, using X-BT Hilti drills, tools, and accessories, a single user can set more than 100 studs in an hour, with no rework necessary.

The X-BT System supports a wide range of applications, including fastening grating, PFS ESL type slotted cable hangers and SLP type pneumatic tube supports, and more. PFS is proud to be able to offer the full X-BT installation kit to our customers, which includes a powder-actuated tool, a cordless drill, a cleaning kit, a rapid charger, two batteries, spray lube, and operating instructions-all together in one convenient, compact case.
