Button-fix Type 1 Bonded
Ideal for thin panel materials
For use where screw-fixing to the panel is not possible and bonding is the preferred option. It can be either surface-mounted or semi-rebated and works with a broad range of materials.
The Fix housing is moulded from ABS and the Button is 30% glass filled nylon PA6 - both strong and robust engineering polymers. There are many structural adhesives suitable for bonding ABS to a wide range of panel materials, for example, a 2-part structural acrylic adhesive, a matched adhesive for solid surface (Corian®, Hanex®, etc.) or solvent weld for bonding to acrylic.
As a general guide, four Button-fix Type 1 Bonded fasteners on a vertical panel will support loads weighing up to a maximum of 80kg (175lbs), however, this can vary significantly depending on the adhesive and substrate material combination. Always follow the adhesive manufacturer’s recommendations on substrate suitability, preparation and loadings. Manufactured in the UK.
