Weld Mount is a complete line of "Instant Bond" fasteners and adhesives designed to bond directly to almost any surface without using fixtures or clamps.
The system cover a wide range of fasteners such as wire tie mounts, hose and cable clamps, studs, standoffs, and floating nutplates. All Weld Mount fasteners are secured using unique non-sag acrylic adhesives that hold parts in place on vertical or overhead surfaces with a permanent high strength bond. Weld Mount adhesives are rated from -65 to 250 degrees and set in 15 minutes or less.
The heart of the system are acrylic adhesives specifically formulated for use with Weld Mount parts. They are high strength, high viscosity methacrylates with incredible strength in both tensile and shear. We have a range of different adhesives depending upon your application requirements.
Use Weld Mount when mounting components to the hull or decks of cored fiberglass boats. Surface bonding Weld Mount fasteners eliminates the need to drill holes through the laminate into the core, removing the danger of delamination due to water intrusion. Because bonded Weld Mount fasteners are stronger, the need to glass in wood or other materials just to have a mounting surface is eliminated. This saves significant labor,materials, time and expense while also reducing the weight of the boat.
Adhesive bonded fasteners eliminate holes in composite structures which leads to leak paths and also weakens the panel. Weld Mount fasteners are faster to install and require less skilled workers saving cost and weight.
The Weld Mount Fastening System is ideal for mounting electronic components, primary wire and cable runs, submerged bilge wire and hose bundles, as well as securely mounted firewall and bulkhead wiring.
On metal boats Weld Mount eliminates welding, drilling and tapping saving significant labor costs. Often welding is not an alternative on finished boats due to fire hazards. Welding often results in warpage and discoloration of the metal which can be difficult if not impossible to remove.
Weld Mount fasteners are used for many automotive applications:
Hot Rod and Custom Car Builders use Weld Mount wire ties for running wire bundles. This eliminates drilling holes into the frame and in firewalls. Weld Mount stainless studs and clamps are also used for mounting brake lines and other hoses, hard lines & plumbing.
Earth Moving Equipment manufacturers can cut production cost by using bonded tie mounts as an alternative to welding clips to hold wire harnesses.
Stereo Equipment Installers use Weld Mount studs for mounting amplifiers and other audio equipment.
