(OP)
Has anyone a helpful tip where to find nutplates catalogs (to be used for aircraft)?

RE: Nutplates

tonino59...

SPS has a catalog of standard fasteners (it produces) that has proven to be a helpful "finder" for me. I then go to IHS specs-standards for the actual data.

http://www.spstech.com/aero/prod_lit/index.html

Down load the "Aerospace Fasteners (7.5MB PDF file)
Numerical Listing of Parts. Lists NAS, NA, AN part numbers for aerospace bolts, nuts and washers" brochure.

The noted brochure has a little pictorial view of most current generation NAS, MIL, MS etc fastenerss... and enough of a description to be a useful starting point.

RE: Nutplates

Has it really been 13 years since they've updated that catalogue?  Still good info though.

RE: Nutplates

I would try the Mil specs (free specs), MS21052 onwards. They usually have NAS equivalents.  

RE: Nutplates

(OP)
Thanks to all of you. I found what I was looking for.
Just for completeness, where do you get the ESNA nutplate detail information from? IHS site doesn't recognize them.

Thank you, bf109g! Very helpful info!!

RE: Nutplates

OH-Yeah...Check-out SPS P/N TA2507 in the following catalog... looks almost identical to the JZ. http://www.spstech.com/aero/prod_lit/esna_catalog.pdf

TA2507  ANCHOR, FLOATING, CORNER,
CAPPED, BASE SEAL
10-32 thru 5/16-24 to 250°F

Tonino...

Bad news: one of my replies appears to have been trash-canned [disappeared].

Further options to consider.

FTI ForceTech rivetless nutplates. Sealed version is available. Elegant solution! NP base is sleeve-cold worked into position like forcemate bushing [obvious fatigue benefits]; and a replaceable Nut element is installed. http://www.fatiguetech.com/fasteners_forcetec.html

NAS1735 Elliptical Blind nutplates are [were?] extensively used in F-16 wings. Install NAS1735 per NAS1736.
