rivets are used where the rivet is not accessible from both
sides. They have an integral mandrel that permits the formation of an
upset on the blind end of the rivet. As the mandrel is pulled into or
against the body being riveted it breaks at or near the intersection
of the mandrel shank and its upset end. Blind rivets are frequently
used as an alternative to solid rivets.
rivets are easy to install, requiring no special tools. The
drive rivet is set by striking the pin with a hammer, driving the pin
flush with the rivet head and expanding the back side of the rivet.
We offer a range of
aluminum drive rivets in 1/8", 5/32", 3/16", 1/4" and 3/8" body
diameters with universal (dome), brazier (large flange), countersunk and
trailer liner head styles.

Semi-tubular rivets have a coaxial cylindrical or tapered
hole in the end opposite the head, the depth of which does not exceed
112% of the mean shank diameter. Semi-tubular rivets are similar to
solid rivets, but require much less insertion force, allowing longer
rivets to be used without the rivet shank buckling. Semi-tubular
rivets are used in impact riveting applications. Upon impact the rivet
end flares outward, following the shape of the tool, until it rolls up
against the surface of the work piece.

Semi-Tubular-Truss Semi Tubular-120°
rivets have completely solid shafts with no internal
cavities. Bending, hammering, or twisting the protruding end to
create a strong connection secures solid rivets. They are more
difficult to attach than other rivet types and required powered
machinery to insert. Variations of solid rivets include those with
round heads and those with flat heads.
Solid Rivet- Countersunk Solid Rivet-button
Solid Rivet-Flat Solid Rivet-Pan
rivet that has two shanks that are spread apart once
the rivet has been inserted. Split rivets are also referred
to as bifurcated rivets.
Split-Countersunk Split Rivet-Oval
rivets have a coaxial cylindrical hole in the headless end
that exceeds 112% of the rivet shank diameter. They are designed for
securing by splaying the end. Tubular rivets are used most commonly
in self-piercing applications, where a pre-drilled hole is not
required. Tubular rivets are used in a wide variety of manufacturing
areas, including industrial, aerospace and automotive.
