Single-component tape-fastener

Velcro Limited has announced the introduction of the Ultra-Mate SC2 which it describes as "a unique single-component tape-fastener".

The tapes slide past each other in some directions, and lock together in others.
Other features detailed by Charlotte Bridge, the company's industrial marketing co-ordinator, include the fact that use of the tapes eliminates the need for two mating components. In addition, "the tapes work well on rigid surfaces and offer a high cycle life".

Applications are expected to be found in interior panels, office furniture, flat-pack furniture, sports court surfaces, and exhibit, banner, signage, and fixtures. Other products currently being highlighted by the company include the Ultra-Mate high-technology hook and 'One-Wrap' straps.
"The product range is one of the most versatile fastening systems available with a proven track record across industries including automotive, medical, construction, electrical, and industrial", says Charlotte Bridge.

Velcro Limited will be exhibiting at the Fastening & Assembly Solutions Show, National Motorcycle Museum, 23 October.
