Fasteners and Fabric

  • Easier Assembly with pre-coated Adhesives
    Fasteners with factory pre-coated adhesives can make your assembly process easier. They can replace the problematic adhesives currently in your factory: messy liquids and dangerous hot-melt adhesives can cause burns and damage delicate materials.
  • High-tech Fabrics
    We manufacture with the latest innovative fabrics that are moisture wicking, breathable and durable. Fabrics like this can keep skin dry and offer additional protection with a new bacteria- and odor-blocking technology.
