Composite Potted-In Inserts

Marketing Masters’ composite potted-in inserts are used to attach and fasten honeycomb sandwich structures. They’re commonly referred to as “wall panel inserts” or “floating inserts” because they are widely used in aircraft walls and stowage bins to fasten panels together and to the aircraft structure.
However, our potted inserts can be used anywhere a fastener is required, and are particularly well-suited to applications where blind holes that don’t pass all the way through the panel are needed or where inserts must be “flush” with the panel skin.
Made from Torlon®, a high-tech composite thermoplastic (see below), our potted inserts are a lightweight, high strength, corrosion resistant, and cost-effective alternative to metal inserts. Request a quote on Torlon® composite inserts or contact us to learn more.

What is Torlon®?

Torlon® is a high performance thermoplastic material manufactured by Solvay Advanced Polymers. A high strength, light weight variation of polyamide-imide (PAI), Torlon® provides reliable performance and durability, even in the most extreme conditions and at elevated temperatures. And, because it’s plastic, Torlon® is completely corrosion-free.

Potted Insert Specs, Styles & Approvals

Marketing Masters offers potted-in inserts in four different styles to suit your unique needs and panel  thickness requirements. To find the correct potted inserts for your application, specify the:

Our composite inserts are standard equipment for every major aircraft OEM. We offer: All our potted-in inserts are AS 9100 certified, ISO 9001:2015 certified, and FAA/PMA approved. National Aerospace Standards were established to ensure that all components meet or exceed quality and performance standards. Marketing Masters' AEP 1033, 1034, 1035 and 1036 series potted-in inserts, are the preferred composite alternative to old NAS Standard metal inserts (NAS 1833, 1834, 1835 and 1836).

Installing Potted Inserts

We’ve designed our potted-in inserts for fast and easy installation. Just a few simple steps is all it takes for secure installation. Once the hole is drilled and insert installed, adhesive bonding is required to hold it in place.

Potted-In Inserts for Aviation OEMs

Aircraft OEMs utilize Marketing Masters’ Torlon potted inserts for aircraft manufacturing. Our inserts are ideal for aviation applications, as they’re strong, 100% corrosion free, and significantly lighter than metal inserts—50% lighter than aluminum, and 83% lighter than stainless steel. Our composite inserts are a cost-effective way to improve performance without sacrificing strength and durability.

Potted-In Inserts for Aerospace Applications

Weight is a key factor for aerospace OEMs—sending something into space costs something like $1,000 per gram. Our composite inserts are a reliable option for reducing weight without losing performance. The unique Torlon® material makes them strong and durable enough to withstand the rigors of space travel, and light enough to shave valuable pounds off the weight of spacecraft, satellites, and other equipment.
