Why use Polymer-Plastic Fasteners?

Polymer-plastic fasteners are a type of fastener made from plastic or polymer materials. They are used in a wide range of applications, from household items to industrial equipment, due to their lightweight, corrosion resistance, and low cost. Some of the key features and characteristics of polymer-plastic fasteners include:

  1. Lightweight: Polymer-plastic fasteners are much lighter than metal fasteners, making them easy to handle and transport.

  2. Corrosion resistance: Polymer-plastic fasteners are resistant to corrosion and are not affected by moisture or chemicals, making them suitable for use in harsh environments.

  3. Low cost: Polymer-plastic fasteners are relatively inexpensive compared to metal fasteners and are widely available.

  4. Variety of materials: Polymer-plastic fasteners are made from a wide range of plastic and polymer materials, including nylon, polypropylene, and acrylic.

  5. Variety of sizes: Polymer-plastic fasteners come in a wide range of sizes, from small to large, to accommodate different applications. Standard sizes include: #4, #6, #8, #10, #12, 1/4", 5/16", 3/8", 1/2", 5/8"

  6. Variety of head types: Polymer-plastic fasteners are available in a variety of head types, including pan head, round head, and flat head. Each head type has a specific purpose and is suited for different applications.

  7. Variety of colors: Polymer-plastic fasteners are also available in a variety of colors, allowing for color coding and easy identification.

  8. Customizable: Polymer-plastic fasteners can be custom made to meet specific requirements, such as specific dimensions or thicknesses, or to include additional features such as an adhesive backing.

  9. Easy installation: Polymer-plastic fasteners can be easily installed with hand tools and do not require specialized equipment.

  10. Recyclable: Polymer-plastic fasteners are recyclable and can be reused or repurposed, making them an environmentally friendly option.

Polymer-plastic fasteners are widely used in a variety of industries, including automotive, construction, electrical, and electronics, medical and pharmaceuticals, and more. They are used in products such as household appliances
