Hook and Loop Fastener
Invented by George de Mestral, a Swiss engineer in 1948, invented the fastener after seed pod burrs kept on sticking to his dog during their daily walks on the Alps. The name was kept after French words velours which means “velvet” and crochet which means “hook”.
The fastener has two sides, one hook side, and the other one loop side. Both the sides are covered equally by a tiny plastic loop which when pressed together holds the pieces together. However, when the layers are detached, it releases a ripping sound. In short, it is famously known as “hook and loop”. The bonding can only be determined on how well the hooks are embedded.
The fasteners offer a lower processing cost, faster assembling, lesser rework and great design flexibility. It can easily adapt to any molding process.
