Spring-Fast Grommet Edging: SL-FST Series
SL-FST is fully encapsulated in a flexible non-halogen, flame retardant,
low smoke, low corrosive, and low toxic TPE for EN 45545 FST compliant abrasion protection.
With 4-axis flexibility, it can be used as best in class grommet edging or edge trim.
- FST compliant for EN 45545.
- Stainless steel core fully encapsulated in a flexible non-halogen, flame retardant, low smoke, low corrosive, and low toxic thermoplastic compound for FST compliance and abrasion protection.
- 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.
Grommet Differentiation Table (GDT)
|SL-FST||Parallel||Multi axis||Yes||Yes - integral||Yes||Good||No||No||EN 45545 compliant|
- Where Fire, Smoke, Toxicity protection is needed – e.g., rail, aerospace, automotive, etc.
- Used on straight, roll formed and flanged edges
- Multi axis flexibility for flanged holes and small radii inside or outside corners
- Also used as a high performance edge trim
The old nylon grommet with glue is old, inefficient, and costly. DTi has a better way.
- 100% encapsulated in a flexible non-halogen EN 45545 compliant TPE
- Flame retardant, low smoke, low corrosive, and low toxic
