The following is a press release provided to Contact the individual company for additional information.

TR Fastenings, the leading manufacturer and distributor of industrial fastenings, is delighted to announce the launch of its new plastic products range for Printed Circuit Board (PCB) hardware and Cable Management requirements. Plastic fasteners and fixings are set to be a core part of TR’s expansive product portfolio, with a comprehensive range available, on demand and competitively priced.

Manufactured in high-performance and incredibly versatile Nylon 6 and Nylon 6/6, TR Fastenings’ new PCB range includes circuit board hardware, rivets, screws, Cable Management and Wiring Accessories.

Combining functionality and reliability without compromising on quality, these plastic fasteners feature extensive benefits which can assist in efficiency and productivity of production processes. Not only can one plastic fastener be used for a variety of purposes, but they also have other qualities, including ease of use, being formed from a lightweight material, strength at low and high temperature, resistance to impact, abrasion, organic solvents and gasoline, retention of shape and stiffness at high temperature. Furthermore, TR’s plastic range meets with the necessary industry standards and sizes, all products satisfy the RoHS compliance (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) legislation, are ISO 14001/2004 compliant and available in flame-retardant versions.

A typical example is TR’s range of Nylon 6 SR snap rivets, which are available in industry standard black or white and also in a flame-retardant material. These compact, two-piece, pre-assembled, multi-function fasteners require no application tools (just a simple finger pressure application) and are ideal for high-volume manufacturing of printed circuit boards, such as in mobile phones, as well as most forms of panel-fixing. A further, extensive range of panel-fixing fasteners are to be introduced shortly.

The new moulded Nylon range for PCBs addresses a multitude of application needs, including consumer goods, marine and contract manufacturing industries owing to the fasteners’ versatility, but the range is especially beneficial in the electronics and telecoms industry, such as ATM machines, PCs, laptops and mobile phones, as well as in lighting. In such applications, with their closely grouped electrical components, plastic fasteners offer the ideal solution as they are a non-conductive material. Furthermore, TR is introducing an extensive range of Cable Ties, Cable Management products and Wiring Accessories, for effective Cable Management.

TR’s supply capacity for the new range will meet small and frequent orders right up to large contract accounts, catering for next-day delivery on all standard stock items, non standard is 7 to 10 days. Customised solutions and tooling for new parts are available on request.

Complementing TR’s core product range, the new plastic fasteners will be available on Direct Line Feed as a standard item to help customers’ production needs and reduce their supplier numbers.

As an industry leading company, TR Fastenings’ unparalleled global presence serves customers around the world and around the corner, with its regional presence in 26 countries. Web:
