Plastic fasteners and fixings

Nov 8, 2012 | Cables and Accessories

TR Fastenings has launched new plastic fasteners and fixings for printed circuit board (PCB) hardware and cable management requirements.

Manufactured in Nylon 6 and Nylon 6/6, TR Fastenings’ new PCB range includes circuit board hardware, rivets, screws, cable management and wiring accessories. One plastic fastener can be used for a variety of purposes, and they are also formed from a lightweight material, have strength at low and high temperatures, are resistance to impact, abrasion, organic solvents and gasoline, have retention of shape and stiffness at high temperature. TR’s plastic range also meets with the necessary industry standards and sizes. All products satisfy RoHS compliance (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) legislation, are ISO 14001/2004 compliant and available in flame retardant versions.

For example, TR’s range of Nylon 6 SR snap rivets are available in industry standard black or white and also in a flame retardant material. These two piece, pre-assembled, multi-function fasteners require no application tools (just a simple finger pressure application) and are well suited for high volume manufacturing of printed circuit boards, as well as most forms of panel fixing.

The new moulded Nylon range for PCBs are especially beneficial in the electronics and telecoms industry, such as ATM machines, PCs, laptops and mobile phones, as well as in lighting. In such applications, with their closely grouped electrical components, plastic fasteners offer a solution as they are a non-conductive material. Furthermore, TR is introducing a range of cable ties, cable management products and wiring accessories.
