The Huge Potential and Versatility of Nylon Fastenings


Innovation in plastic production has meant that traditional metal fastenings are largely being passed over in favour of the many excellent nylon alternatives. These fastenings are not only non-conductive and non-oxidising but potentially as strong and durable as their predecessors. Lightweight, aesthetic and affordable, they offer advanced properties that have the potential to revolutionise what your business has to offer.

Whilst an array of equipment was once required to assemble panelled products, nylon fasteners can offer fast and efficient tool-free construction. With simple push-fit fastening solutions, meeting the demands of modern manufacture has never been easier. Complicated rework issues of metal rivet construction can be avoided all together, and elegantly designed releasable plastic rivets provide great opportunities for both temporary and longer lasting installations.

Our range of nylon rivets and fastenings offer infinite potential with applications as diverse as the automotive, aerospace, electrical and white-goods industries. They are ideal for furniture manufacture, a multitude of retail applications and for the construction of housing for just about anything one might imagine.

Aside from the more obvious applications within the manufacturing industry these versatile polymer fastenings also offer many uses for the hobby and creative markets as well. Nylon fastenings can facilitate the imaginings of your customers with potential uses in the creation of modern statement jewellery, household projects and even costume and set design. The sky truly is the limit!


Snap Rivets offer the fastest, easiest to use method of fastening two panels together. They come pre-assembled and require only push application without any need for tools. The result is an instant, neat and strong fastening that is certain to last. Our Snap Rivets are available in a range of sizes and can be produced in a wide selection of colours, allowing you to coordinate the appearance of your product or use these clean, tidy fastenings as a visual tool. Nylon snap rivets are extremely durable, with high tensile strength, corrosion resistance and temperature durability ranging from -30 to +85°C.

Flame retardant Snap Rivets can also be manufactured to order. The lightness of the fastenings make them ideal for the manufacture of fuel-efficient vehicles and their affordability means that you can produce light, mobile products while retaining excellent value for money.
