Re-closable interlocking fastening solution compliments adhesive tapes

An innovative new product from Eurobond Adhesives 'dovetails seamlessly' into the range of high performance adhesive tapes, the company claims. The Snap&Fix fastening system offers product designers, production and manufacturing managers a whole new world of possibilities for permanently or temporarily fixing two materials together.

The fastening system works on the principle of interlocking plastic mushroom heads, which provide a solid connection when pressed firmly together. When pushed together the mushroom heads form a high performing and durable bond between two substrates. Snap&Fix can be fastened and released as often as required either lengthwise or crosswise.

The extruded mushroom heads are supplied in a roll length format with a high performance, pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive backing. In addition to roll lengths, the product will be supplied in small rigid plastic blocks and squares with countersunk holes drilled in the middle to mechanically fix them to walls or hard surfaces to act as fixing points which can then be mated with another block to form permanent or temporary mounting of inspection panels, cover plates, hoardings, facias and sign panels and door skins. The system can also be used in applications such as bonding vehicle dashboards, internal roof linings in cars, boats, coaches and trains. It will bond together most metals, modern composites, wood, glass and many different plastics. And importantly, the system can be simply disassembled.

Snap&Fix is totally weatherproof and is not affected by most contaminants. It meets FMVSS 302,FAR25.853 and 95/28/EC Annex IV fire rated approval standards for vehicles and aerospace, and is approved for use by some of the world's leading car manufacturers including VW, Ford, Volvo and BMW.

Eurobond Adhesives is now making it available to the general manufacturing and fabrication industries. To book your FREE site visit and demonstration please call our technical team on 01795 427888 or email us at sales@eurobond-adhesives.co.uk
