Imagine a screw-stud on the deck of your beautiful boat used to fix a cover being 100% corrosion free and blending away in the deck colour. A final farewell to those annoying eye-catching points that stand out of the smooth design lines, even if they are not corroded. Designers love to have the beautiful lines and shapes of their product not being disrupted by those inevitable points to hold cushions, blinds, carpets or covers down on deck, whilst it entails the exact same and quick installation as a normal screw stud. A unique formula of smart design and high quality materials make it possible to have a composite self-tapping screw stud for use in fibreglass, wood and other composites.
Matching any design, colour and snap. Comes in 4 standard colours and fits any standard (24 line) ring spring press fastener.
Same and quick installation as a normal screw stud. Just drill a pilot hole (5,5mm or 7/32”), countersink and tap the screw stud straight in using the firm grip of a torx 30 bit in your electric screw driver.
100% corrosion-free, no wearing out and UV resistant
MATCHING ANY SNAP
The stud is the lower part of a snap or ring-spring press fastener system. CAF-COMPO screw-stud will fit any regular ring spring socket, no matter the supplier (meeting Mil Spec 10884 (MS27980 Style 2). Even the plastic sockets fit. Comes in various colours, white, cream, light grey and black. A alternative version with a machine thread makes it possible to solve the corrosion issue on any aluminum surface, such as window-frames, not suitable for self-tapping in aluminum or steel.
TESTED TO THE LIMITS
Until now it was considered not possible to have a composite screw tapping into a hard surface like polyester. Tests confirm a same or better performance, hold and installation as regular screw-studs. The CAF-COMPO screw-stud is a one-piece part made of a uv-stabilized glassfibre reinforced thermoplastic and is positively tested to hold 500N shear force. Even a strong blow of a hammer on the back will not have the stud to pop out of the surface.
