With a high shear strength due to the internally locked stem, the Avtainer fastener creates a vibration-resistant joint which is also watertight – thanks to the unique under head Santoprene™ seal.
This high strength steel fastener is designed for joining composite panels to metal. Avtainer can be used to fasten metal to metal and metal to GRP or composites. Assembly applications include commercial vehicles, container, and partitioning.
The Avtainer prevents cracking and pull through of composite materials, and is particularly successful in the assembly of GRP vehicle panels.
