Fasteners in the MatchFast Stainless range are manufactured from high grade stainless steel, also known as A2 grade stainless steel. As it is not possible to harden this grade of stainless steel, a sophisticated manufacturing process is used, in which a carbon steel drill point is fusion-welded to the stainless steel body of the fastener. The final fixing will be totally secure and inherently corrosion resistant.

A4 Stainless Steel material available for more challenging environments. (Contact Fixfast Technical on 0845 450 7483).

The MatchFast impact-resistant nylon heads are moulded over the metal fastener head and shank, providing precisely matched colour heads, excellent resistance to UV fading and second to none performance.

Nylon heads provide an extra level of protection from the elements in more exposed locations.

Features:

  • Coloured heads – 11 mm bi-hex UV stabilized nylon moulded head for excellent colour matching in many RAL and BS colours.
  • Aluminium/ EPDM bonded washers – , 15, 19 or 29 mm diameter aluminium gives high pullover strength and EPDM seal offers long-lasting seal.
  • Free-spin zone – Eliminates thread strip out in thin sheet materials, standard on stitching and high thread fasteners.
  • A2 and A4 stainless steel - for high corrosion resistance.
  • Optimized thread design – Enhanced pull-out performance and smoother tapping.
  • Optimized hardness – Eliminates failures.
  • Unique drill point geometry – Drills quickly and cleanly.

Fastener incorporates a Free Spin/ Thread Free Zone to eliminate overdriving.
