These high-quality nylon plugs from Wovar have an enormous load-bearing capacity. You determine the correct drilling depth when placing nylon plugs by adding 1 cm to the length of your plug. The correct screw diameter is indicated in the characteristics of the various Wovar nylon plugs. Wovar recommends choosing the largest possible screw diameter for a solid subsurface and the smallest possible screw diameter for a hollow base. This ensures the strongest anchorage. With the Wovar nylon plug, it is best to choose the largest possible diameter.
What are These Nylon Plugs Suitable For?
Wovar's nylon plugs are suitable for anchoring in concrete, solid bricks, light concrete, sand-lime brick, and masonry. Because there is no raised edge on the plugs, the nylon plug can be inserted as deeply as possible into the material. This ensures optimum load capacity. Wovar wall plugs expand when you insert and tighten the screw in the plug. You can determine the expansion direction of the plug yourself by turning the plug. Small edge distances are possible because you can rotate the plug so that the expansion directions are parallel to the edge of the building material.
How do I Know in Which Building Material I am Going to Fix the Plugs?
It is of course possible that you are not sure in which building material you are going to fix the anchorage. The best way to find out is by drilling a hole with a small drill diameter. Collect the drill dust with your finger and determine the building material based on the color. Is the drill dust red? Then the building material is stone. For drilling dust with a gray color, the building material is concrete. If you get white drilling dust, the building material is aerated concrete or plasterboard. The difference between plasterboard drill dust and aerated concrete is that the plasterboard drill dust sticks slightly more and is lighter than that aerated concrete.
In addition to nylon plugs, Wovar also supplies hollow wall plugs, express nails, and frame screws. You can also opt for our expansion bolts for extremely strong anchoring.
