Products included in the new lines are spur teeth washers and grommets, as well as brass eyelets and rings – which are used extensively in the textile industry. In addition, there are tri snaps – which offer an economical snap fastener that is ideal for lightweight applications; as well as turnbuttons, which are positive locking fasteners assembled with a spring mechanism that holds the stud button in position until turned by hand.
SD Products also stocks a large range of DOT® fasteners, which are well known for quality and durability. ‘Durable Dot’ and ‘Pull the Dot’ ranges are manufactured from heavy gauge brass and 316 grade stainless steel – designed to withstand tremendous amounts of pressure without unlocking. Heavy-duty components guarantee that these fasteners show improved performance and corrosive resistance in the most severe environments. The fasteners are self-piercing so they can be attached even to the roughest fabrics without the need for pre-punching.
