Steely hook and loop fastener takes on tough applications

Hook and loop fasteners have become commonplace features of both industry and households. However, they have one snag: they are too weak for many applications. Hook and loop fasteners made of spring steel have now been developed at the Institute of Metal Forming and Casting of the Technische Universitaet Muenchen. These fasteners are resistant to chemicals and can withstand a tensile load of up to 35 tonnes per square meter at temperatures as high as 800°C.

BLIND RIVET FASTENER

The Hucklok blind rivet fastener, a structural rivet from Alcoa Fastening Systems, offers a quarter-inch grip range, allowing the product to join assemblies from 1/8 to 7/8 in. thick. The fastener’s footprint, or "bulb", spreads the load over a broad area. The wider grip range is due to the shear ring. After the maximum clamp has been achieved from minimum to maximum grip, the shear ring breaks free from the pin and settles into the appropriate catch groove. The clamp is consistent through the grip range.
