bigHead® fasteners are an ideal way to create a secure and serviceable connection point on an assembly component that’s made of composite or lightweight material.
Why bigHead® fastening solutions?
Design challenge: Non-visible fastening
bigHeads are ideal when it is aesthetically undesirable to see the fastening connections, or it is technically undesirable to have through-holes in the material.
Design challenge: Connection into thin material sections
bigHeads can create securely connected fastening points on, or within, relatively thin material sections.
Material challenge: Non thread bearing materials
bigHeads can create secure, load spreading fastening points in materials that will not tolerate thread-forming operations, or materials that offer limited thread-strength.
Material challenge: Multi-material compatibility
bigHeads are suitable for use with a multitude of different material types and formats, and within a wide range of fabrication and forming processes.
Manufacturing challenge: Eliminating hole drilling operations
Embedding or surface bonding of bigHeads avoids the risks of material damage and dust generation during drilling operations.

bigHead® – industries
Composite panel fastening for off-shore power
bigHead Bonding Fasteners frequently works together with clients to provide Special designs for composite panel fastening. The Core and Extended product ranges are able to cover many applications, but innovative designs often require bespoke solutions. By their nature, our special designs differ from one another but our ‘Specialisation’ page gives a flavour of the issues we address.
Composite panel fasteners for automotive applications
As composites are used for a wider range of automotive applications, the importance of composite panel fasteners grows. The creation of secure and reliable fastening points compatible with a wide range of composite materials and their different fabrication processes is key. bigHead helps designers and fabricators meet these challenges in several ways.
Construction industry GRC panel fastening
Panel fasteners are an important topic in the construction industry and especially in relation to fixing glass fibre reinforced concrete (GFRC or GRC) panels. GRC offers enormous advantages in construction, providing a strong and durable material. GRC panels are often as thin as 13 mm but, although comparatively light, can weigh up to a ton or more.
