Fastener hold patch


General DPN

Both threaded and unthreaded fasteners can be temporarily held in place during transport, fabrication or assembly with the patented NYSTAY locating patch from Nylok Corp.

The polymer – pre-applied 360&#176 around the fastener – is soft enough to allow hand-assembly and allows manufacturers to pre-install certain components. The non-toxic patch is replaces old methods of using plastic washers to hold solid rivets and is said to provide a dramatic increase in productivity while reducing assembly labor costs. The patch also can be located at any point on the fastener length and provides a solution for robotic riveting type production.
