Permanent Fasteners Supplier
Leading Distributor of Aerospace Parts in US
When it comes to the world of fasteners, there are two kinds you will find: permanent and non-permanent. Non-permanent fasteners are the more common and widespread type of fastener you will find in use. This is because they are designed to allow for easy removal and the ability to re-use it. Bolts and screws fall under this category. By using non-permanent fasteners, you can assemble and disassemble when needed.
So, this brings us to permanent fasteners, which as you can tell by the name, are permanent. When you use a permanent fastener, you will be permanently joining two materials, such as metal sheets or plates, or different parts. When you remove this type of fastener, you will be destroying the hold and product. Rivets and nails are the common permanent fasteners you will find.
Types of Rivets
A rivet, as mentioned, is a permanent fastener. So once it gets removed, it cannot be re-used. Many industries count on rivets on a daily basis and commonly used to join metal sheets and plates. Here are some common types of rivets.
These rivets consist of hat and mandrel and used to join two materials together. During the installation, the mandrel is forced into the body of the rivet, which forces the body to expand and grip onto the materials. Once there is the grip, the remaining mandrel snaps off.
Large Flange Pop Rivets
The Large Flange Pop Rivets are similar to Pop Rivets in their application, but feature a much larger flange. So this makes them ideal for larger installations and applications.
A multi-grip rivet is used to join materials with differing thicknesses, which makes them a very versatile fastener. This normally would require multiple rivet sizes, but with the use of a multi-grip rivet you can adhere to the different sized materials. So they are also cost-effective, since you are getting all that you need with this type of rivet.
