Quality Comparisons
Physical Characteristics
 Heat Resistance Melting point - Hook: 230°C, Loop: 180°C
Maintains normal bonding performance during 1000 hours at temperatures between 93°C to -56.7°C
 Cold Resistance Still works when temperature is -20°C, and the lower the temperature, the higher the bonding strength, but with a decrease in durability.
 Water Resistance Retains 50% of closure strength in water and recovers 100% of strength after drying.
 Chemical Resistance ALKALI - Within 50% of Alkaline Soda. Within 28% of Ammonia.
ACID - Within 2.5% of Hydrochloric Acid, 15% of Sulphuric Acid and 3.5% of Nitric Acid.

Introducing the OCTOPUS series
A new concept suitable for using under water!
Produced from specially treated blent yarn, the new OCTOPUS series was developed for use in wet conditions. It is therefore ideal to use with life jackets, diving equipment, gloves, raincoats, camping equipment, beach sandals, windbreakers, car covers, etc.
 
Regular hooks show a marked change after immersion in water.
Specially formulated OCTOPUS retains it's sheer
& peel strength.
