Reclosable fasteners offer a reliable fixing solution where an application requires regular inspection or temporary holding.
When your product requires multiple openings and closings, reclosable fasteners such as 3M Dual Lock and Hook and Loop products provide a trusted and reliable solution. They are strong, reliable and secure; they offer flexible fastening and fast, easy assembly and dismantling. They can be used on flexible or rigid surfaces providing an invisible reclosable fastening solution that is conveniently removable.
Other reclosable fasteners include differential tapes; these provide a permanent bond on one side and a removable/repositionable bond on the other. They are thin, flexible and allow removal of items with no adhesive residue.
In addition, magnetic tapes offer removable attachment that is conformable and will adhere to a wide variety of surfaces. These high energy tapes remain permanently magnetised, even after being dropped or impacted. They will stick to curved, twisted or irregular surfaces without cracking or breaking.
