Solid Brass Rivets

Brass rivets are a simple, yet reliable, fastener option. They are comprised of a solid shaft with a sturdy head at one end. During installation, the headless end of a solid brass rivet is deformed (either with a hammer or with a special rivet tool) to hold the rivet in place.
Brass solid rivets are among the most widely used permanent fasteners. They can be found in everything from blue jeans to architecture to marine equipment. Advantages of brass rivets include:
  • High strength
  • Natural corrosion resistance
  • High thermal conductivity
  • High electrical conductivity
  • Decorative appearance

Why Use Brass Solid Rivets?

  • Fast assembly: When using mechanical rivet installers with automatic feed, brass rivets can be installed as fast as 3 per second.
  • Strong joints: The solid brass material, sturdy head, and swollen/deformed shank end create a reliable joint between two workpieces, with very high shear strength.
  • Permanent: Once installed, brass rivets cannot be removed without tools and without destroying the fastener.
  • Inexpensive: In general, solid brass rivets are far less expensive than threaded fasteners.
