PLASTIC SCREWS, A VALID ALTERNATIVE TO METAL
The term fixing has become part of our everyday life as “the act, the process in which one fixes” and, for experts, it is associated with the operation of assembling elements to ensure proper tightness, durability and safety of items in their environment.
As a matter of fact, fastening systems are made to provide assistance in solving different types of problems, especially when assembling and combining various objects.
When we talk about fastening systems and their elements, we must consider a number of factors, first and foremost, that of identifying the most suitable solution to our needs.
Each plastic fastener has its own function, which derives from some essential characteristics, such as lightness, corrosion resistance, electrical resistance, robustness and strength.
Often, indeed, it is necessary to eliminate potential electrical conductors and, therefore we are required to choose alternative materials to metal, such as plastic, which provides the same mechanical properties of metals, but without having their disadvantages.
Plastic is the best material to achieve high quality standards and has replaced metal in many applications. It is a versatile and low-cost material that offers endless opportunities for innovation.
Plastic hardware is used everywhere, from transportation to electronics, from industrial machinery to construction, and in numerous other industries.
The car we ride in, the computer we work with, the pipes that bring water and gas into our homes…All of these work thanks to plastic components that need to be properly assembled and fastened for our safety and comfort.
In particular, plastic screws are used in cases where there is a strong subjection to corrosion for a long time, or in cases where there are strong vibrations and, therefore, a material that has good elastic characteristics and is able to offer a high resistance is needed.
