  • YKK Snad self adhesive snap fasteners with 3m tape

    YKK Snad fasteners are a relatively new fastener to the market. Made by YKK they have been trailed and tested under various conditions. There was a gap in the market for a self adhesive snap fastener and SNAD fits the bill. People will say it looks good, ticks all the boxes but are they strong enough.... well flip me they are strong. If you stick by the rules then they should last a very long time. 
    Unlike traditional metal trims, SNAD® is a plastic adhesive snap component. This product will not snag clothing or deteriorate from exposure to sunlight, sand, or dirt. Plus, walking on SNAD® is pain free due to its unique dome shape. Installation is simple, clean the surface where the snap is to be applied, peel off the protective paper backing, position and firmly hold the snap in place and release. No tools, no waiting, no splits, no holes!

    "SNAD® " is a registered trademark of YKK CORPORATION in Japan and other countries/regions.
    All sounds too good to be true... well its true. 
     
    Here is the range we offer

    Snads come in 25 and 40mm diameters. Both in cap and socket forms. 
    The bases are either black or white plastic and clear, white or grey flexi bases. 
    The plastic bases are suited to flat surfaces. Must be completely flat with no ridges, bevels or bumps. The clear flexi bases are good for curved smooth surfaces. 
    Snap components will adhere to most clean, dry and well-unified surfaces. Typical surface cleaning solvents are a 50/50 Isopropyl Alcohol (rubbing alcohol) water mixture. 
    After application, the bond strength increases and approaches the ultimate bond strength after 72 hours at 70°F (21°C). Typical bond strength build-up: 20 minutes equals 50% bond strength, one hour equals 75% bond strength, one day equals 90% bond strength, and three days equals 100% bond strength.
    Snad fasteners are perfect to use on caravan and motorhome  especially for wheel arch covers. No need to drill into the side of your caravan with these. Plus you would hardly notice they are there.
