Plastic is used extensively for numerous different purposes. Certain types of plastics soften when exposed to great heat so they can be processed by such means as moulding or extrusion. Using plastic has major advantages because the softened material can easily be shaped to the desired form and reused.
The use of plastic produces a tight result and is ideal for short-life consumables such as nappies. These types of fasteners are hygienic, waterproof and guarantee great adhesion in combination with a non-woven product.

Adhesive for every surface. When gluing hook and loop fasteners, the type of adhesive greatly influences the complete product. Even the best quality hook and loop fasteners, woven from the finest materials, lose their value if they are not secured properly.
