Description

A split tail formation and very large blind side bearing area against the rear sheet makes Bulbex® fasteners a standout in our breakstem catalog.

Made of aluminum alloy, the Bulbex® design allows for a wide variation in material thickness. One Bulbex® fastener can often be used to replace several standard grip fasteners; thereby reducing fastener inventory and simplifying stock control.
