What is hook and loop ?
It is an adjustable closure obtained by pressing two parts together. The gripping part penetrates the loop part. On opening, the hooks open and release the loop.
The closure performance in terms of longevity, grip, and resistance to opening varies
- the shape of the gripping element: hook, mushroom or harpoon.
Various technologies are used in their manufacture weaving, extrusion or injection moulding.
- the construction of the loop: density, texture and size of filaments. Various technologies are used in their manufacture weaving, knitting or non-woven.
Depending on the requirements of your application, APLIX can offer a hook & loop combination which will give you the best results.
