Adhesive-bonded fasteners have been used for decades on thousands of aircraft worldwide, including commercial and military jets. They are ideal for composite materials, as they preserve structural integrity in two ways. First, adhesive bonding means no drilled installation holes, which could compromise the composite material. Second, the adhesive itself provides a barrier between metals and composite materials, offering superior protection against galvanic corrosion.
Rivetless nutplates eliminate the need for rivet holes.
Click Bond rivetless nutplates are currently used on both commercial and military aircraft. Adhesive-bonded nutplates don’t require the two rivet-mounting holes needed by riveted nutplates, reducing nutplate installation time by 70%. They provide a high-strength bonded attachment to a variety of materials. Our split-beam nutplates provide approximately 250 reuse cycles, while reducing galling and thread seizing. FLEXBOND® sleeve nutplates provide secondary mechanical retention in addition to the adhesive and lightning strike protection. Learn More.
Surface mounts requiring no holes are ideal for composites.
Click Bond’s adhesive-bonded mounts offer enhanced design flexibility for routing of systems and protective blankets in both new construction and retrofit applications. Bonded attachment eliminates drilling and the resulting compromises to structural integrity, cost, and restrictions arising from stress considerations. They are ideal for composite materials, as they preserve structural integrity in two ways: First, adhesive bonding means no drilled installation holes, which could compromise the composite material. Second, the adhesive itself provides a barrier between metals and composite materials, offering superior protection against galvanic corrosion. Learn More.
Sleeves prevent and repair oversize holes conditions economically.
Click Bond adhesive-bonded sleeves are an ideal solution for oversize hole conditions resulting from corrosion, manufacturing error (such as misdrilled holes), or fatigue. They prolong the life of composite materials. Designed to reduce turn-time, installation cost, & weight, they also eliminate the need for expensive, long lead-time, oversized fasteners. Our deep-drawn manufacturing process delivers unmatched performance & precision.
Our CB787 Sleeve Trimmer Kit lets you trim BOLTMOD® sleeves to create 1st and 2nd oversize 06 and 08 bolts when you need them. Stock only 1” length 06 and 08 sleeves. The kit contains all the tools you need. Mitigate AOG status due to out-of-stock oversize bolts. Learn More.
