Blanket Insulation Fasteners

Our insulation fasteners are attached to the aircraft by structural adhesive, VHB adhesive tapes, screwed to threaded attachments, or snapped into place. They are all molded from 6/6 Nylon providing strength and resistance to aggressive environments.

Most of the attachments provide a barb that pierces the blanket. A disc is snapped onto the barb to secure the insulation blanket. Some attachments clip onto frames or stringers to allow freedom of placement. Some fasteners provide a fixed air gap between the fuselage and the insulation blanket.

NMC offers insulation fasteners with or without tabs, push-on styles, retainers, nuts, studs, grommets, self-locking pieces, and more. A11 styles have been creatively engineered to provide the best solution to your fastening problems. These affordable fasteners are used extensively to hold aviation insulation in place. Items are easy to install, non-abrasive, heat resistant, lightweight, chemical resistant – durable and long-lasting. The two-piece design makes it quick and easy to snap fasteners on and off.

Honeycomb Panel Fasteners

NMC Aerospace honeycomb panel fasteners reduce weight and cost while providing the strength and durability required for today’s demanding aerospace applications.

NMC honeycomb panel fasteners are corrosion resistant, resist heat to 350 degrees F and perform as well as, or better, than metallic counterparts. Potting compounds have excellent adhesion to these panel fasteners, yielding higher pull out strength.

Each panel fastener comes with an installation tab.
