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.
