There’s a wide variety of nylon and plastic fasteners available to the market and these are some of the specialists which can supply them…

Bollhoff: Secure and tamper-resistant

ParryPlug is a locking element for internal drives to prevent tampering with thread connections. The product operates by inserting the product into the internal drive of the screw, where the locking element locks in a flush position with the head of the screw. This effectively prevents usage of a tool and thwarts tampering.

The ParryPlug is recommended for use concerning the safety of people and machinery, but is also suitable for applications such as screw marking and the avoidance of dirt traps. The product has a wide temperature range of 50°C to 200°C and can be removed with the appropriate tool.

Bülte: The right material for the job

Why should you choose a Nylon screw, nuts or washers, instead of metallic fixation and protection parts? Polyamide and its fellows have numerous advantages.

As everyone knows, the various existing plastic materials are much lighter than any kind of metal. Furthermore, Nylon and its equivalent are non-conductive to electricity and also resist staining.

Nylon parts do also offer very good thermal properties as well as very good mechanical strength with a good resistance to shocks. Nylon fixation and protection parts are also unaffected by chemicals and do resist under hot conditions.

Nylon parts can be used in every industrial sector, they can be coloured – contrary to metal parts. They are often cheaper and have a lighter impact on the environment, the firm says.

Whatever your needs and industrial applications are, Bülte can provide you with advice and a product range of more than 30,000 in plastic hardware.

SD Products: New ranges of rivets and fir tree buttons

SD Products offers a large range of nylon and plastic fasteners in more sizes than ever before. The push rivets and scrivets are reusable and quick and easy to assemble. They provide a secure fixing and will only be detached if necessary. Closed end design is especially useful in blind applications, where it helps with self-alignment. When installed, these rivets will expand in order to secure themselves for a tight fit. Fir tree buttons are often used in the automotive industry and furniture manufacture. The barbs on the shaft of the button point downwards and away from the path of the hole. This allows for an easy access into the surface and secure hold, especially when used with softer materials like wood, plastics or rubber.

TOX: Nylon & plastics for plugs

Is there the perfect plastic for all plugs? Unfortunately not, because depending on the application, very special skills are needed. All-purpose plugs for example knot or spread, therefore, the more flexible PE is most suitable for them - it has a low density and is relatively soft. Expansion plugs however, transfer high spreading forces to the building material. Here PA is required, because it provides the necessary stability, but would tear at excessive rotational forces. Through this targeted use of the plastic, TOX says its plugs offer the best hold for every application, being what TOX stands for since 1941 as Germany’s oldest and most experienced plug producer.
