Design engineers are using composite materials for a growing range of applications. But finding the right fastening solution remains a challenge. Unless you use bigHeads. We offer two ways to design a joint in a composite process. Pick the one that works best for you. Read our white paper for more information.
This approach is secure and discrete. The fastener is integrated within the composite mould tool and embedded in exactly the right place. There’s no need for secondary work. But the fastener must be designed to be embedded – like a bigHead. Otherwise, you risk design compromises and process inefficiencies. That can leave you with a weaker, heavier, thicker product. You can embed a fastener without any of these problems, if you use bigHeads.
Benefits of embedding a bigHead:
Some composite structures are just millimetres thick; that’s not enough to embed a fastener. But drilling would weaken the structure. The answer is to surface-bond the joint. It’s a strong, effective and discrete solution, if you use the right kind of fastener. bigHeads are compatible with just about every adhesive, and the glue can flow through their perforated heads, leading to a strong and reliable bond.
