What are Nylon Fasteners?
Nylon fasteners are a type of fastener made from nylon plastic (PA), a synthetic polymer material known for its strength, durability, and resistance to wear and tear. They are often used as an alternative to metal fasteners when weight savings and corrosion resistance are important. Nylon fasteners have many forms such as screws, nuts, bolts, and washers. They can be made in a variety of sizes and shapes to suit different needs and applications.
Types of Nylon Fasteners
- Non-threaded plastic fasteners: A type of nylon fastener without threads. Non-threaded plastic nylon fasteners are used to hold two or more objects together without relying on the mechanical advantage of threads. Non-threaded nylon fasteners are often used in situations where threads are unnecessary or might be impractical, like when fastening lightweight materials or when a smooth appearance is desired. This type of nylon fastener can be used as clips, pins, and spacers.
- Threaded plastic fasteners: Threaded plastic nylon fasteners have threads, known as helical grooves around their exterior. The threads are used to create a mechanical advantage, allowing the fastener to be tightened or loosened using a screwdriver or wrench. Threaded nylon fasteners are often used as an alternative to metal fasteners when weight and corrosion resistance are required. This type of nylon fastener can be used for screws, bolts, and nuts. They can be made in a wide range of sizes and thread pitches to fit specific applications.
Nylon Fastener Use Applications
- Small mechanical devices
- Wire and cable management
What are the Advantages of Using Plastic Fasteners?
- Lightweight: Plastic fasteners are lighter than metal fasteners. This makes plastic fasteners ideal for use in applications where weight is a concern, including in aircraft or other transportation applications.
- Corrosion resistance: Plastic fasteners are resistant to corrosion, and are preferred for use in outdoor or marine environments where metal fasteners might corrode over time.
- Electrical insulation: Many types of plastic fasteners are good electrical insulators. This makes plastic fasteners suitable for use in electrical and electronic applications where conductivity is a concern.
- Non-magnetic: Some plastic fasteners are non-magnetic, making them the preferred choice in applications where magnetic interference is a concern.
- Low cost: Plastic fasteners in most cases are less expensive than metal fasteners, making them a good choice when the cost is a factor.
- Easy to manufacture: Plastic fasteners can be easily molded into different shapes and sizes. This makes them useful for applications where large quantities of fasteners are needed.
