  • 1. Moving forward with APLIX AUTOMOTIVE Hook & Loop for Seat Assembly APLIX
  • 2. HOOK & LOOP for seat Assembly To meet the performance requirements of Automotive Seating in terms of design, comfort and economics, APLIX has developed a complete range of hook fasteners that can be molded into urethane foam pads in order to engage into the loop sewn onto the back of the trim cover, thereby providing a seat tie-down with sharp definition. Loop for Sewing process High Pile Loop Product folded and sewn at the join seam area. Mold-in products for Foaming process Gripping element molded in the foam pad at precise tie down locations. aplix® 985 Shieldless Mold-in Fastener • Plastic fastener for straight parts. • Metal resin for quick alignment in mold. aplix® 255 Shieldless Mold-in Fastener • Textile fastener with foam backing Straight & Curves. • Metal resin for quick alignment in mold. Our product range offers shielded or shieldless products according to application requirements.

  • 5. Advantages Productivity gains Immediate and High initial engagement is The key success factor for productivity gains. When compared to Hog Ring Systems, Hook & Loop system reduces the seat assembly process cycle time by 20% to 40% depending on the seat design. Automation is possible, especially with envelop type covers. Recycling made Easy Hook & Loop Systems are free of solid metal – therefore no special care is needed for recycling either cover or urethane foam pad as opposed to Hog Ring Systems. AdvAntAges Improved ergonomics In assembly plants using clips or hog ring systems, Carpal tunnel injuries and tendinitis are known to be the major factors for employee absenteism. Hook & Loop system greatly reduces the associated costs of absenteism and workman’s compensation, as a result of minimal pressure needed along the tie down area to ensure a secure engagement between the hook and loop. Improved Seat Comfort Some glue down and “Pour in Place” technologies lack hygrothermality (seat cover does not let air go through). Hog Ring and clip Systems may present hard points over the life of the vehicule. Hook and loop system does not present such drawbacks. Improved Aesthetics Perceived Quality Hook & Loop Systems provide a continuous engagement between the gripping element and the loop sewn on the cover. This prevents the bridging/tenting effect of the cover that may occur between two hog ring locations thereby improving Seat aesthetics. Thin Closure System Hook & Loop Systems require a thin closure (3-5mm) as opposed to clips and hog rings. Seat designers will be able to reduce the thickness of the foam pad and seat cover. Thereby, creating additional raw material cost savings to the seat maker. Design Flexibility Designers may freely use curves in seat designs with hook and loop. Since Hog ring system may require multiple anchor points to sustain a high curve definition without bridging effect, the use of curve is often dismissed with Hog Ring and Clips since it may be considered as too labor intensive.
