  • Bossard Group White Paper – insight on the latest developments in fastening composites

    06 Sep 2021

    Fastening composite and plastic materials presents many challenges, all of which can be overcome by careful selection of the correct solution. There are many solutions and this in itself presents another challenge. Bossard’s White Paper ‘Fastening solutions for composites and plastics’ introduces a selection of technologies and gives an overview of how each of the technologies can provide solutions to…

  • The devil is in the smallest detail

    27 Apr 2021

    You may not consider fasteners as one of your primary design tools – but we’d like to argue that they are! They may seem small and inconsequential – until you need to think about joining materials together. Securing the components in your design whilst you try to satisfy multiple conditions probably causes quite a few headaches. Perhaps there’s a space…

  • Joining in the world of lightweighting

    20 Apr 2021

    Light-weighting no longer means simply moving from steel to aluminium or magnesium. Today’s light-weighted products need structural materials that are lighter still. Wafer-thin sheets of metal, composite materials with glass or carbon fibre, and hybrid structures are the materials that designers increasingly work with. Joining these materials together in ways that meet the design specification can present challenges. Some materials…
