Three weight-saving hook-and-loop fasteners from the Velcro Companies meet industry performance and flame propagation resistance standards for aircraft interiors. HTH724 hook is ultrathin and made of tough polyvinylidene fluoride resin. It is 25% lighter than the hook fasteners typically used in aircraft seating and carpet hold-downs. Hook 82, woven of polyphenylene sulfide, is lightweight and rugged to withstand the repeated fastening and unfastening of insulation blankets and textile applications. Loop 3502, made of polyetherimide, is a lightweight circular knit that can be used with either Hook 82 or HTH724. The fasteners provide good peel and shear strength while simplifying assembly and realignment, and they offer resistance to moisture, chemicals, and temperatures from -60°F to +800°F.
