Threaded inserts for wood, laminates, structural foams & composites

Home / Our Products / Threaded inserts for wood, laminates, structural foams & composites

Tappex® provides solutions with its threaded fasteners to meet the demanding requirements found when seeking to mechanically assemble certain materials and/or combinations of those materials including: glass reinforced plastics (GRP), composite or combination(s) of metal alloys / thermoset plastics / structural foams / wood laminates / paper-based sandwich constructions. Increasingly OEMs & their supply chains are also specifying other materials such as carbon fibre & kevlar reinforcements for application in very light but mechanical-stiff structures. Tappex continues to meet these new application challenges for OEM and other critical industrial applications.

Tappex thread inserts for woods & composites fall broadly into 3 broad categories, namely: self-threading brass Foamserts & steel(s) Trisert-3 inserts, case-hardened screws and special rivet nuts (with patented bulge control feature); design guidance available in all instances. Tappex , in future, will respond with new fastening solutions in the emerging area of ‘light weight materials’ in structural applications.
