Love may make the world go round, but plastic components are used to hold it all together! Plastic fasteners are everywhere. You are surrounded with items that utilize a fastener in some shape, form, or fashion! You may not realize it, but you’re probably using a plastic fastener right now. If you’re sitting on a chair, using your computer, laying in your bed… there is probably a fastener hiding in there somewhere. We tend to forget all the little pieces that hold together a computer, a desk, or practically any piece of furniture.
Volt Industrial Plastics has been in the business a long time - long enough to see how fasteners, like the ones we make, have infiltrated every facet of manufacturing, all over the world. If you trace these intricate parts back to the source, you’ll find VOLT DNA everywhere!
If you’re not in the manufacturing business or in the habit of building things on your own, you may not really know how useful these little things are. While some of our plastic fasteners have common uses, some of them are quite unique. No matter where you need them, what color, or what type of plastic you want them made of, we have millions of fasteners available for you. And if not, we can custom make EXACTLY what you need. We even make the tools in house that are used to form and shape all of our plastic fasteners!
Here are a few places you will find our products:
With more furniture being shipped and sold in boxes, this leaves the construction process up to the buyer. If you’ve ever gone through this tedious task, you have used plastic fasteners to put it all together. Most of the furniture you see these days is being held together or finished out with many different types of plastic fasteners. Some of these may include the pegs holding the shelves on your bookshelf up, or even the screws and plugs used to hold it all together! Using plastic for these parts can provide cost savings in manufacturing, and also decrease the weight of the items as well. They are especially useful when trying to cover all the holes and screws drilled into your furniture, mainly because you can color match any plastic caps to insert in the holes for a nice smooth finishing surface.
Computers are literally everywhere. Powered by the circuit boards inside them, we are able to use our computers every day to accomplish tasks and learn things much easier than ever before. The internal components and circuit boards need to be perfectly placed and spaced out. That’s where fasteners come in! We have parts and pieces designed to snap things into place, space things out, hold wires together, and protect the electronic components.
Plastic is a great choice for these fasteners because they can provide electrical insulation, unlike those made from metal. If you ever have the chance to look at a circuit board, try to see how many fasteners you can point out!
Many appliances big and small are not only made of plastic material on the outside, but the internal components are made of plastic and held together with plastic fasteners as well. Screws, bolts, and rivets are commonly used during assembly for many products like your dishwasher, refrigerator, or laundry machines. Not only that, but with all the appliances becoming so advanced, there is likely a circuit board in there too! Our cable ties and clamps are used in many applications to organize and secure wires and tubes that would otherwise be in the way.
Plastic has advantages when it comes to electronic components. There are many plastic pieces used in engines and car assembly. Plastic not only creates the cost savings and lighter parts that manufacturers are looking for, but it also is non-corrosive and very versatile. This is ideal for car engines so plastic fasteners are being used more and more in place of metal versions.
Volt fasteners can be used in all kinds of applications. Some you may have never even thought of!
