Nylon Fasteners and Plastic Fasteners: How They Work
Nyltite Unheaded Sleeves are lengths of tough, thin-wall, nylon tubing cut to the length required for your specific application. Nyltite Unheaded Sleeves offer all the advantages of other Nyltite products and are most commonly used as spacers, grommets, bushings, bearings and as insulators for screws and solderless connections. Furthermore, thin-wall nylon sleeves offer a distinct space advantage.
Nyltite Unheaded Sleeves can be used as spacers when mounting pc boards. Other applications include sleeves for housing and insulating electronic components. A Nyltite Rolled Collar is inserted over the shank of any kind of fastener (screw, bolt, rivet, nail…)
When tightened, a Nyltite Rolled Collar being compressed beyond plastic deformation flows inwardly and fills the voids between the work piece and fastener. This creates a sealing and locking agent while protecting the surface from damage if required.
