For an impressive variety of industrial fastening products constructed out of many different materials, companies across Canada have turned to Gould Fasteners for decades. Products from this distributor come in steel, brass, aluminum, bronze, and other kinds of metal. In addition, Gould Fasteners carries a large array of nylon fasteners, most recommended for electrical and electronic applications.
There are many cases in which nylon fasteners have significant advantages over their metallic counterparts. Invented in the 1930s as a versatile alternative, these fasteners are lightweight, flexible, insulating, nonmagnetic, and resistant to corrosion, vibration, abrasions, and contamination from most solvents, petroleum oil, and grease. Another key advantage is that there is no danger of rust. They are acceptable in many applications in which high strength is not a necessity and in which extremely high temperatures, chemicals, moisture, ultra-violet rays, and flammability are not factors. Some companies prefer this type of fasteners for their inexpensiveness, but it is important to note that they cannot replace metal fasteners in some cases.
Gould Fasteners offers a wide range of nylon fasteners, including bolts, bushings, clips, hole plugs, nuts, retainers, rivets, screws, spacers, standoffs, studs, and washers. Both machined and injection-molded variations are available. Many of these fasteners are made of nylon 6/6, peek, nylon 4/6 (46), and nylon 33 per cent glass filled. The company supplies nylon fasteners only from manufacturers with solid international reputations for quality, such as Essentra Components, Heyco, Micro Plastics, Nylon Molding Corporation, and Volt Plastics.
Gould Fasteners also carries durable nylon fastening products for carrying wire and cables, like ties, ducts, clamps, and ID products and accessories. The company offers nylon cable management systems designed to minimize snagging or damage to cable insulation, helping users keep cables safe and organized, even in outdoor applications.
