 Spring-Fast Aerospace Grommet Edging:  Aero

The BAP Aerospace Flexi-Grommet™ Series protects wires and cables from chafing and arcing.

Key Benefits

  • Superior performance: encapsulated spring steel core outperforms plastic grommets.
  • Snap on installation lowers costs 49% vs. grommets with glue.  Watch the 4 min. video below.
  • Improves efficiency 9.5x – due to fewer steps in workflow.
  • BAP Substrate is encapsulated with lubricious fusion bonded EPOXY for superior abrasion and chemical resistance.
  • Polymer cushion providing a sacrificial soft interface for cables to protect against abrasion.
  • Greater gripping strength for severe shock and vibration environments with 4-axis flexibility.

Features

The old nylon grommet with glue is old, inefficient and costly.  DTi has a better way.

  • Encapsulated with a steel substrate
  • Snaps on in seconds with finger pressure cutting total install costs by 49%
  • Installs continuously and is very flexible for use on straight edges and sharp inside and outside corners
  • Self locking with strong retention
  • 2- or 4-axis flexibility fits single/multi-plane applications including small inside/outside radii
  • Chemically resistant to most hydrocarbons, Skydrol immersion, salt spray, shock and vibration resistance
  • Across the product life cycle its ease of application, use and removal will consistently save time and money
  • Customization available
