The Role and Application of Bonding Fasteners

Bonding fasteners consist of a stud or female thread welded to a perforated base plate, offering metal anchors on materials such as carbon fibre and GRP. The design ensures strong adhesion and load distribution, making them suitable for diverse applications, including injection and rotational moulding techniques.

To affix Bonding Fasteners to your product, mould them directly into the plastic or post-apply using adhesives. The plastic or adhesive will flow into the perforated plate, thereby producing a lock against rotational torque forces applied. The versatility of these large-flanged nuts and bolts also enables them to be welded, riveted or screwed directly to plastic, metal, wood or other substrates.

Key Features of bonding fasteners

Enhanced Strength: By combining mechanical fastening with adhesives, bonding fasteners provide superior holding power. This is particularly advantageous in applications where high shear and tensile strength are required.

Versatility: Bonding fasteners are suitable for a wide range of materials, including metals, composites, plastics, and more. This makes them ideal for use in diverse industries such as automotive, aerospace, electronics, and construction.

Improved Aesthetics: These fasteners often result in cleaner and more streamlined assemblies. The absence of visible screws or bolts can be beneficial in applications where appearance is crucial.

Vibration and Noise Reduction: The adhesive component of bonding fasteners can help dampen vibrations and reduce noise, making them suitable for use in dynamic environments.

Bonding fastener Base Plates

Base plates used with bonding fasteners ensure secure attachment and load distribution. These plates typically feature perforations that allow for the effective bonding of adhesives, enhancing the overall strength of the fastener. The base plate can be affixed to various substrates, providing a stable foundation for the bonded fastener. This is especially useful in applications where traditional mechanical fasteners might not be suitable, offering a reliable solution for anchoring in materials such as plastics, GRP and laminated products.
