12 May 2022

Eyelets are an essential piece to join, reinforce and hold a support with another material. They are usually used, for example, in indoor and outdoor canvases, banners, vinyl, curtains, awnings... Today we are going to recommend which eyelet to choose to place on canvases, since it is one of the most frequently asked questions and it is important that you know if you work or you are interested in the sector.

types of eyelets

As you may already know, there are two main types of eyelets : metal eyelets and plastic eyelets . They are the most common today, but there is a special type of Ollao that is more recommended for its excellent qualities and benefits. Do you want to know which one? Let's first briefly compare them:

Metal eyelets have been used for a long time and in different sectors. You can find several types: metal eyelets made of aluminium, brass, nickel or stainless steel , for example. The problem with using this type of eyelet is that over time it oxidizes and suffers corrosion , and can even seriously damage the material. Stainless steel eyelets are one option, but a much more expensive one to consider.

Plastic eyelets , on the other hand, do not rust, are more resistant , and can also be recycled . They withstand temperatures better, they do not need anticorrosive treatments like metals, they are protected from ultraviolet light and you can choose several colors: red, blue, yellow... you can even make engravings! Offers greater creativity. However, many opt for a more discreet option: clear plastic eyelets .
