Plastic Screws Overview
Plastic screws can be produced using various materials in several sizes and configurations and are more resilient than metal fasteners when exposed to UV rays. They are often found in unique applications where there is increased sun exposure, including marine and aerospace applications. Plastic screws were even used in the production of the Hubble Telescope.
