High Performance, Cold-formed Inserts
Designed to Fasten Your Components Better
What is GripTide?
GripTide™ is an internally threaded cold-formed steep part used in plastics to mechanically provide and unlimited reusable thread.
Why the GripTide™ feature works:
The Griptide™ multi-directional patterns were designed for maximum resistance to torque and pull-out. Repeated testing has demonstrated remarkable success including a bolt-breaking hold on a variety of plastics. Continuous 100% part inspection monitors every insert during all phases of the manufacturing process. Cold-Forming provides design freedom while maintaining dimensional repeatability.
