What We Offer• Safety and Quality go ‘hand in hand’
Every time a person drives their car, they want to feel their safety has been taken into consideration. The safety and performance of cars depend on the quality and performance of automotive fasteners which hold the car together. We provide you with quality fasteners for safety critical applications so you can build safe automotive components. Part of providing safe products is ensuring that they reach the highest quality standards. AFSR has established advanced quality systems and procedures to eliminate fastener defects. Full traceability is maintained at all times throughout the process with all relevant conformance documentation, reports and certificates of analysis available upon request.
• Our fasteners can help reduce the weight of your end product
AFSR fasteners can also help you directly reduce the weight of your end product. AFSR mechanical fasteners allow for the joining of differing materials, which welding does not allow for, such as aluminium and steel combinations. AFSR fasteners also typically have greater tensile strength and vibration resistance properties than standard fasteners which means that in some applications you can use fewer fasteners in your joints without performance loss. AFSR has also developed, and is currently expanding, a range of fasteners for joining composite materials to enable further lightweighting as material technology progresses.
