Commercial Blind Rivets
Available from Rapid Rivet & Fastener Corp.
Commercial blind rivets are two piece fasteners consisting of a body, or sleeve, and a setting device called a mandrel, stem or nail. These components are used when a joint can only be accessed from one side of a structure.
The rivet is set as the mandrel head is pulled into the body, which then causes it to expand and flare against the reverse side. Once the head of the mandrel reaches a pre-determined force at the face of the blind side of the rivet, the mandrel then snaps at the break point and forms a tight joint.
The head of the mandrel remains encapsulated in the body while the stem is ejected.
These fasteners are used in a wide range of commercial applications. They are used in structural and equipment settings by industries that include HVAC, electronics and lighting, automotive, household appliances, and furniture, as well as a range of other products.
Their low-cost, easy-to-install, permanent fastening capabilities make them favorable for many uses.
