Rivets

What is a Rivet?
Rivets are used to permanently join two plates usually in mechanical applications where it is imperative that joints do not become loose and cause failure.

Types of rivets

• Blind Rivets also known as drive rivets have a mandrel through their centre that once inserted into pre-drilled holes of the parts they are joining, the blind end expands and the mandrel snaps off. They can be installed from only one side making them ideal for areas where access is limited.
• Tubular Rivets have a shank hole within the shaft of the rivet and are available with different head styles such as oval, button, flat and countersunk.
• Snap Rivets are supplied pre-assembled and simply push into the required holes providing a fast and neat solution.
• Solid rivets, or the original rivet. These solid fasteners resist water, vibration, tampering, and other severe conditions.
• Threaded insert and rivet nuts which are applied like a classic rivet ti integrate seamless, strong, and permanent threading in fragile sheet materials

What can be Rivets used for?

Rivets are intended to offer awesome flexibility, enabling them to fasten wood, metal, plastic and substantially more. They are especially suited for restricting delicate, thin materials and generally fragile connections. Most common, everyday rivet applications include:

• Building and construction — gutters, fiberglass roofing, hanger straps, windows, doors, window blinds, wind guards, and custom wall installations
• Transportation and infrastructure — bridges, overpasses, and large-scale metal structures
• Woodworking and decorative finishing — signage, hinges, photo frames, furniture, drawer pulls, doorknobs, and sturdy woodcraft
• Fine metalwork and jewellery — decorative metalwork, jewellery, and intricate machinery
• Aviation, aerospace, and automotive — aluminium and aluminium alloy construction, aircraft assembly, vehicle body panel joining, and strong, neat repairs for vessels of all kinds
Rivet material selection
• Aluminium -commercially pure aluminium for extremely soft or brittle materials; for lower shear/tensile requirements
• Steel - general purpose use; used for all steel rivet mandrels
• Stainless Steel - austenitic stainless steel; offers good corrosion resistance
• Nickel Copper Alloy - offers extremely high corrosion resistance; has excellent elevated temperature properties
• Copper - used where electrical conductivity is required
