Plastic panel and trim fasteners have a multitude of applications and uses. They offer some unique advantages that are not available when using fastenings and fixings manufactured from tougher materials, like steel alloys. Plastic fasteners form SD Products Ltd are produced form high quality engineering polymers: nylon, polycarbonate and polyoxymethylene, more commonly known as acetal. When nylon was first developed in the mid-1930s it was originally intended to be a cheap and mass produced alternative for silk, however it was very quickly determined that nylon holds ideal qualities to be used for moulded nuts, bolts and a variety of other industrial fasteners. Polycarbonate and acetal, much like nylon, are exceptionally durable, impact resistant and lightweight. More importantly all three polymers are non-conducting and non-corrosive. These attributes become vital for highly specialised applications involving electricity or hazardous environments. Plastic fasteners’ neat appearance makes them perfect for applications where the fastening cannot be concealed. In some cases even the fastener itself can be a part of the design. Permanent or removable, plastic panel and trim fasteners form SD Products are sure to satisfy all our customers’ requirements.
