Bonding fasteners are extremely versatile, they can be used on a number of different materials providing equally strong and reliable fixing. They are widely used in the automotive and marine and aerospace industries, highly regarded for their light weight and durability. There are 2 preferred methods of installation, the fasteners can either be fully embedded or surface mounded using an adhesive. The flat perforated head offers a wide surface area, ensuring better load distribution.

    In addition to our standard line we also supply a wide variety of bespoke parts suitable for highly specialised applications and requirements. Our catalogue holds a large selection of bonded fastener types produced from high quality mild plain-carbon steel. Dependability in demanding conditions is especially important considering that bespoke bonding fasteners are often used in medical and firefighting equipment as well as in numerous automotive, marine and aerospace applications.

  • Compression Rings and Limiters

    Compression rings are primarily designed for knob-to-shaft applications. They effectively eliminate the need for inserts and setscrews when used as compression limiters inside the bolt hole. This allows for faster and easier assembly at the same time reducing the cost. The compression ring squeezes firmly around the bolt, pressure is distributed evenly around the shaft of the bolt ensuring that stress and wear are greatly reduced. Manufactured from high quality carbon steel compression rings are highly durable, making them ideal for a large variety of practical applications. Widely used in the automotive industry, machinery and even for domestic purposes they are, without a doubt, extremely widespread.

  • Trim Type Edge Clips

    SD Products offers a range of Trim Type Edge Clips. These clips are primarily used in the automotive assembly, however they can have other industrial applications and can often be found in various domestic appliances. The barbed U-shaped body of the fastener ensures a secure and rattle-free installation. Our trim type edge clips are manufactured from carbon steel, an alloy of iron and carbon that makes these fasteners harder and offers increased heat resistance.

  • VELCRO® Brand Hook and Loop Fasteners

    SD Products supplies a large range of different types of VELCRO® Brand hook and loop fasteners. Hook and loop fasteners are easy to use and extremely versatile; they can be found in a wide variety of applications. These fasteners are particularly popular in clothing and fabric manufacture, ranging from adaptive clothing for people with physical disabilities to combat uniforms for the army. Hook and loop fasteners are perfect for cable management solutions, numerous domestic applications, automotive sector, gardening and more.

    Hook and loop fasteners naturally consist of two components – one fabric strip fitted with tiny polyester hooks and another fitted with tiny loops. When both fabric strips are pressed together they form a temporary but secure bond, which can vary in strength depending on material and application. The bond can be easily separated by hand when peeling the strips apart. However when the force is applied equally across the surface of the fabric strip hook and loop fasteners can hold considerable weight without compromising the bond. Hook and loop fasteners are safe, reliable and low maintenance.

    Although these fasteners can be produced by many different manufacturers VELCRO® Brand is very much synonymous with hook and loop. It’s not uncommon for people to refer to hook and loop simply as “Velcro”. Velcro Industries is a worldwide corporation with over 60 years of experience in the market, it still holds a patent on hook and loop technology. Over the years Velcro Industries recommend itself as a trusted leader in the consumer, medical, military, packaging, transportation, construction, and personal care markets.

    SD Products is proud to be a distributor for Velcro Industries, we supply numerous lines of VELCRO® Brand hook and loop fasteners and we can always guarantee the quality of our products. Our range includes heavy duty stick on tape, reusable ties, adjustable straps, plant ties and more.

  • W-Buttons and Arrow Clips

    W-buttons, Arrow Clips and Keyhole Clips are designed for a quick and easy hand assembly of thin-gauge board or sheet materials like wood, plastic or metal. Despite the fact that these fasteners can be installed applying only finger pressure they still offer secure fixing for any application. The parts in this category are manufactured form high quality acetal and nylon. W-buttons moulded from acetal are exceptionally tough and durable, they can withstand extreme heat and they practically don’t absorb any water. When forced through a pre-punched hole the body of the w-button expands, offering firm and secure fixing. Both arrow and keyhole clips are produced form a polyamide from nylon class known as Nylon 6/6, which offers increased stress resistance while retaining elasticity and lustre. Highly resilient to chemicals these fasteners are great for hazardous environments where parts produced form lesser materials would wear and corrode. Arrow clips compress as they are pushed through the hole and spring back to the original shape when the installed. Keyhole clips work on the same principle, however they also have a keyhole shaped interior which allows them to compress more making the fastener easier to push through the hole.

  • SD Products designs a solution for Jaguar Land Rover

    SD Products Ltd is a third generation family owned business with over 40 years of experience as a stockist distributor of specialist fasteners. With each year, as our business continues to grow, we aim to raise the bar and further expand our extensive product catalogue. One of the areas we focused on in 2016 was our automotive range, which already includes over 900 unique fasteners and fixings.

    In addition to our standard stock we often have to come up with unique solutions to suit our customers’ precise requirements. We recently received an enquiry from a tier 1 Jaguar Land Rover supplier for a fixing that would hold a seal to a BIW (Body in White) section of a vehicle. The brief was to design a low profile fastener for both A and B surfaces that would also have to prevent lateral movement.

    We visited the customer, assessed the application and found that none of the available fixings would completely prevent a possibility of clashing with supporting BIW. We came up with a design for a brand new solution that consisted of a 2 piece snap fastener and raised the initial drawing. First 3D printed prototypes of the design revealed that some excess material needed to be removed from the fastener head.

    After all necessary amendments were completed the updated version of the design was submitted for a second round of prototyping. The part was subsequently deemed fit for purpose and taken to tooling stage. The final batch of samples was tested and approved by the tier 1 supplier and Jaguar Land Rover, the part is now in full production. Contact us for any design or engineering solutions you would like us to help with.
