Carmo is a world leader in weldable plastic eyelets and grommets.
Carmos HF weldable plastic eyelets are strong, flexible and do not rupture. We blend the right composition of raw materials to meet your specific demands for performance, weather conditions, UV radiation exposure, etc.
Compared to metal grommets, welded PVC eyelets will fuse together with the foil and result in a joint that is significantly stronger and can withstand significantly higher pull forces. This is especially true when working in mesh materials.
Watch the Pull Experiment here. The result speaks for itself.
Carmo’s eyelets are typically used for reinforcement of holes in foils and fabric. In building wraps, banners and tarpaulins.
They offer more advantages for the outdoor vinyl banner producer, e.g.:
Outperforms metal grommets in flexibility and strength
Durable in harsh environments. Will not rust and leave stains
No hemming required,
the only solution for single layer vinyl.
“Invisible” placement of eyelets on the back of the banner is possible.
Carmo weldable plastic eyelets can be delivered:
In PVC, PE, PVC/PUR (PVC is standard, for PE or PVC/PUR, please Contact sales)
In nearly any color (Clear, grey and white are standard, for for other colors, please Contact sales)
Our weldable eyelets are typically mounted using High Frequency Welding (also known as HF welding or RF welding) or ultrasonic welding. We supply a full range of tools and electrodes – covering all our geometries – for use in existing bar welders, and a line of dedicated machines for integrated punching, automatic feeding and welding of eyelets.
Prototyping and small-scale production…
For small-scale production, prototyping and repairs we also recommend our unique Carmo seal, suitable for gluing soft PVC to PVC. Carmo Seal is resistant to heat, water, oil, petrol, plasticizer and ageing.
How to increase strength…
Depending on the application, Carmo PVC eyelets can be used in both single-sided and double-sided configurations:
Singlesided eyelet welding offers quick insertion and welding and the possibilities to hide the eyelet from direct view – especially useful in high-quality banner production.
Doublesided eyelet welding offers maximum strength and durability – especially in mesh materials.
Ordering and variant information
All measurements and drawings are nominal. For exact measurements - and for critical integration - please contact sales for detailed drawings.
The ultimate eyelet for demanding applications.
High pull forces and durability.
A metal eyelet moulded directly into the plastic eyelet delivers superior strength and durability compared to traditional plastic eyelets.
