What are Rivets?Rivets are permanent mechanical fasteners designed to hold two or more metal or other materials together. Upon installation of solid rivets, the headless end of the rivet is beaten out or pressed down to keep the fastener securely in place. Rivets provide several advantages, making them an ideal fastening solution compared to other fastening methods. As permanent fasteners, rivets are less prone to failure due to vibration than other threaded fasteners.
What are the Advantages of Rivets?Rivets provide a solution for joining dissimilar materials together, including nonmetallic materials like plastics, wood, and more. Riveting is relatively inexpensive compared to other fastening methods, particularly for high-volume applications. Additional rivet benefits include:
- Strong and reliable
- Easy to install
- Excellent bonding
- High durability
- Easily assembled
- Easily inspected and replaced
Rivet Style OptionsRivets are available in several styles and material options, including blind rivets, copper belt rivets, plastic snap rivets, and more. Some of the more popular rivets include the following styles:
Blind RivetsBlind rivets are tubular fasteners with a mandrel through the center, designed to be inserted into predrilled holes. These rivets utilize a specialized tool that draws the mandrel through the body of the rivet, creating a secure hold.
Drive RivetsDrive rivets are a type of blind rivet with a drive pin designed to spread the end of the shaft. These rivets are often used in commercial sheet metal applications.
Nylon Rivet SnapsNylon Rivet Snaps are special rivets designed for light-duty fastening applications. Nylon rivet snaps are often used to join plastic sheets, fiberglass, and composition materials.
Solid RivetsStandard solid rivets consist of a solid shaft with a head on one end. During installation, the headless end is deformed with a hammer or a rivet gun, securing the rivet to the fastened materials.
Semi-Tubular RivetsSemi-tubular rivets are manufactured with a shallow hole at the tip, opposite the head. The rivet’s shallow hole allows the tubular portion of the rivet to roll outward when force is applied, reducing the amount of pressure required for installation.
