What are Rivets used for?
They are predominantly used to permanently fasten sheet metals together; however, they are also suitable for composites, plastics and laminate materials.
What type of industries are Rivets used in?
Riveting is widely used in applications where light weight and high strength are critical, they are used wherever there is a need to fasten materials together. These are just a few examples industries that they can be found in: -
Automotive, bodyworks (commercial vehicle), cabinets, construction, electrical appliances, exhaust systems, guttering, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) ladder manufacturing, metal industry and even sculptures and art installations!
The riveting process is environmentally friendly when compared to welding and bonding as it is chemical, smoke and fume free.
What kinds of material do Rivets come in?
Depending on the fastener type, they are available in a variety of materials such as aluminium, steel, stainless steel (A2 & A4), and copper.
How to choose a Rivet?
The blind fastener that you choose depends upon the environment in which it is being used and the type and thickness of material that it is fastening together. Depending on the product, the diameter of the rivet can range from 2.4mm to 12.7mm for the more structural projects. Head types include dome head, countersunk flanged and large flange.
