Fasteners. Setex CF

Setex® CF Conformable Fastener is a low profile, low-weight, two-sided fastening system, that can be hermetically sealed—ideal for apparel, hermetic closures, upholstery, automotive seats, and packaging.

Unique, low profile, flexible fastener

nanoGriptech’s Setex provides a unique fastener solution for leading product designers who are frustrated with the limitations of hook and loop and mushroom connectors. Currently available as a custom solution, Setex-based fasteners join a dry adhesive tape or sheet to a smooth mating surface.

Attributes and Benefits include:

1

Conformal: Setex CF can conform to a wide range of shapes, including tough to manage concave forms.

2

Low Profile: Setex CF is film-thin, enabling new designs, creating precise fits, and removing precious weight and space required by other fasteners.

3

Customizable: Setex CF can be designed with varying shear and peel strengths to fit your application’s needs.

4

Residue-Free: Setex CF is completely dry, providing a strong, repeatable fastening solution without lint-attracting hooks (or mushrooms) or debris from broken hooks, loops, or mushrooms.

5

Silent: Setex CF fasteners go unnoticed, operating without the ripping and zipping sounds that can alert your prey and scare them away.

6

Hermetic: Setex CF provides a hermetic seal unlike zippers, hook and loop, or mushroom fasteners, blocking water and other liquids from ruining your stuff.

The Science

Setex® Conformal Fastener (CF) is a unique, conformable bonding system.   It is a two-part closure system, consisting of a mating surface component and a dry adhesive microfiber component.  Setex® CF is created on a thermoplastic polyurethane TPU film. The TPU can be bonded to a wide variety of substrates including textiles, plastics, natural products (paper, leather), and metals and is resistant against home washing and dry cleaning.
