Collection: Flame Resistant Screws, Nuts, Bolts, Washers, and Fasteners

What Are Flame Resistant Fasteners?

Flame resistant polymer screws, nuts, bolts and washers, are fasteners that are made from polymers that have a low flammability and a high resistance to flames. They are used in a variety of applications where fire safety is a concern, such as in the construction, transportation, and defence industries, or in environments where the risk of fire is present. All fastener materials are graded on their flame resistance, this is outlined in the section below.

Flame Resistant Polymer Materials

There are a variety of flame resistant polymers that can be used to make screws, nuts, bolts, washers, and fasteners, including polyphenylene sulphide (PPS), polycarbonate (PC), and polyetheretherketone (PEEK). These polymers are known for their low flammability and high resistance to flames.

Every polymer material is assigned a flammability rating. Our top flame resistant polymer material is PEEK, this is rated at ULV94 V-0. More information on PEEK can be found using the button below.

Flame Resistant Polymer Fasteners

  • Applications

    Flame resistant polymer screws, nuts, bolts, washers, and fasteners may be used in a variety of applications where fire safety is a concern, such as in the construction of buildings, vehicles, and other structures, as well as in the manufacture of safety equipment and in the operation of defence and transportation systems. They may also be used in the assembly of electrical and electronic components, such as batteries as well as in the manufacture of electrical insulation materials.

  • Other properties

    Flame resistant polymer fasteners are often chosen for their low flammability and high resistance to the spread of flames, as well as their other beneficial properties, such as corrosion resistance and good mechanical properties. They can help to improve the safety and reliability of equipment and structures in environments where the risk of fire is present, and they can help to prevent the spread of flames and reduce the risk of fire-related accidents.

Why Are Flame Resistant Fasteners Needed?

Flame resistant polymer screws, nuts, bolts, washers, and fasteners are an important component in many applications where fire safety is a concern. When components are paired with flame resistant fasteners, they may not only be meeting design specification but also meeting government legislation.
