It’s all in the mix…

As the use of lightweight panel and materials evolves in the manufacturing industry, Star Fasteners have tailored their Huck fastener range to meet customers’ needs. The new Penta-Lok fastener and encapsulated Hucktainer are ideally suited to this market.

Star recognised a gap in the market for a mechanical blind fastener that can be quickly installed in the multiple variations of new composite panels. The Penta-Lok is a 6.4mm diameter plated steel, peel fastener which is ideally suited for use within thin materials or delicate composites.

The Hucktainer panel fastener has been designed specifically for joining light weight composite panels, plastic and fiberglass reinforced plywood to a wide range of materials. With this in mind Star Fasteners have brought to the market a coloured encapsulated head Hucktainer. Its increased head diameter spreads the load and helps eliminate panel crushing. Hucktainer can be encapsulated in any colour; with low order quantities and quick turnaround it is proving to be very popular.

Star Fasteners stocks a comprehensive range of rivets and threaded inserts. The in-house powder coating service means any stock item can be coloured to meet customers’ requirements and despatched at short notice.
