Spring-Fast Grommet Edging: SL Series
The SL Series has a steel substrate fully encapsulated in flexible, lubricious TPE
for superior abrasion and chemical resistance.
It has 4-axis flexibility and acts as a best in class grommet edge or a high performance edge trim.
- Superior performance: encapsulated stainless 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.

|SL Series||Parallel||Multi||Yes||Yes integral||Yes||Good||No||No|
- Used in high performance applications: aircraft structures/interiors, avionics systems,
military vehicles, NASCAR vehicles, supercomputers, medical equipment and rail transit
- Straight, roll formed and flanged edges
- Multi axis flexibility for flanged holes and small radii inside or outside corners
- High performance edge trim
The old nylon grommet with glue is old, inefficient and costly. DTi has a better way.
- 100% TPE encapsulated stainless steel substrate
- Snaps on fast with finger pressure
- Installs continuously with multi axis conformity
- Self locking with strong retention with no adhesives
- Simpler install: no adhesive, fixturing, curing, clean up or OSHA concerns
- Maintenance is far easier due to its ease of application, use and removal
- Customization available (lengths, colors and print)
