Plastic adhesive snap components

January 1st, 2011 / By: / Hardware & Findings

SNAD plastic adhesive snap components from YKK Snap Fasteners America Inc. offer an alternative to metal screw studs, and increase application possibilities.

Since there is no need for a functional spring in the plastic socket, there is no concern about interference with a screw head. 3M™ VHB™ Tape holds the component to the substrate. The components offer more flexibility, as a plastic socket or stud can now be used on the deck or bulkhead.

SNAD sockets will not corrode and are easy to clean and maintain. The socket action is consistent after 10,000 snap on/snap off cycles.
