Solid Monel Rivets

Solid Monel rivets are an excellent fastener choice for demanding applications. “Monel” refers to a group of nickel alloys that provide enhanced capabilities to withstand conditions that other materials cannot. Monel rivets are commonly found in aerospace, marine, and oil and gas production/refinery applications, as well as in high end musical instruments, among other uses.

The material’s unique alloy composition gives solid Monel rivets a number of advantages, including:
  • High strength—Monel is stronger than pure nickel and many other pure metals
  • Excellent resistance to corrosion
  • Excellent resistance to seawater/marine conditions
  • High acid resistance
  • High melting point
  • Exceptional toughness
  • Maintains physical properties at extreme temperatures

Why Use Monel Rivets?

While Monel is one of the more expensive metal alloys available, it is not without good reason. The material’s chemical composition gives it mechanical properties and performance capabilities that most other metals can’t match. For example:
  • In aerospace applications, Monel rivets can withstand intense heat and pressure in combustion chambers that stainless steel cannot. This is thanks to Monel’s extremely high tensile strength (as much as 125,000 psi) and excellent corrosion resistance.
  • In marine applications, Monel rivets provide far greater shear strength than aluminum, as well as higher corrosion resistance to withstand constant water/saltwater exposure and submersion. Monel does weigh more than aluminum, but not enough to offset these benefits.
  • In structural/engineering applications, the higher tensile strength of Monel fasteners allows users to achieve the same results with far fewer rivets over aluminum or stainless steel, thereby reducing overall weight and assembly time.

Diameter of Shank

Nominal Diameter Minus Plus
0.052-.094 0.001 0.003
0.095-0.156 0.001 0.004
0.157-0.219 0.002 0.005
0.220-0.375 0.003 0.006
0.376-0.625 0.004 0.008
0.626-0.875 0.006 0.012
0.876-1.000 0.007 0.015

Length of Shank

  • Diameters of 3/4” up to 4” long, inclusive
  • ±1/64” diameters to 3/4” lengths over 4”
  • ±1/32” diameters over 3/4” to 4” long ±1/32”
  • Diameters over 3/4” in lengths over 4” ±1/16”

Diameter of Head

No machining or trimming has been done to the heads of these solid Monel rivets. Because of this, the circumference may be irregular, or the edges may be rounded or flat.

The diameter of the rivet head shall be within -8° and +4° of the nominal head diameter.

Height of Head

+8°/-4° of the nominal or basic head height, but in no case less than ±0.005”.
 

Out-of-Roundness of Head & Eccentricity of Head in Relation to Shank (In Inches)

Nominal head diameter Total dial indicator reading resulting from eccentricity and out-of-roundness not to exceed
Up to 1/4” 0.015
Over 1/4” to 3/8” 0.020
