Mushrooms and micro-mushrooms

As written in previous articles, we do not want to give you a new recipe for cooking an unknown category of “micro-mushrooms”, but introduce you to a world of new fasteners: fasteners that are not just small, they are microscopic, almost invisible.

A world of new, very thin fasteners – with a thickness of approximately 1 mm – called Microplast® is now catching on.

One part of the fastener is composed of miniscule interlocking elements, visible almost only with a magnifying glass (the “micro-mushrooms”), the other part is made of very light velours.

Although extremely thin, the holding power is surprising and the fastener withstands numerous opening and closing movements.

Indeed, if you look at this magnification under the microscope, you’ll see the hexagonal form of the mushrooms and you’ll easily understand how they can catch the threads of almost any textile material (even ties if you’re not careful!).

 Subtly intelligent application ideas

As always, we’ll give you a few ideas for applications, but imagination knows no bounds and we’ll just give you a few examples.

Do you need a fastener for your packaging?

Look at the photo: on one side is the micro-fastener, on the other the thin velour.
