Q™ RIVET Fastening System

Q™ Rivet Fastening System Benefits:

  • Good Shear Strength: Rivet mandrel plugs the entire length of the rivet body, providing high shear strength values for structural or load-bearing applications.
  • Sealing Capability: Specially designed mandrel is engineered to effect a weather-tight seal when the rivet is installed properly.
  • Vibration Resistant: Rivet body curls over end of mandrel to ensure its positive retention.
