Automotive fastener

The automotive fastener is a critical component used to assemble many different facets of an automobile. As such, it must have the strength and stiffness to support needed functions. It must also have the lubricity to allow for lower insertion forces. During insertion, the fastener needs sufficient elasticity to deform without breaking. Above all, it must be easy-molding to fill all the fine details of the fastener.

Ascend’s Vydyne is ideal for this application due to its balance of strength and stiffness with good lubricity and elasticity. The ease of molding allows many design features to be added to the part to improve functionality. The Ascend automotive team has years of experience creating optimal parts for Ford,® General Motors® and Chrysler.®
