Plastic Bolts, Nuts and Washers
Thermoplastic fasteners can be used in a variety of applications that require resistance to chemicals and corrosive environments. When used to join dissimilar metal parts, they help eliminate cathodic corrosion problems. Caution should be exercised during assembly since thermoplastic bolts can break by over-tightening. These fasteners are stocked in PVC and CPVC but are also available in polypropylene, Teflon, nylon, Kynar, Lexan, Kel-f and Polyethylene.
