The materials to be riveted only have to be reached from one side, which explains the term "Blind" riveting. The rivet is made of two parts namely, the body and the mandrel. The body is deformed when the rivet is set and it is this part, which clamps the materials together.
All our Blind Rivets conform to DIN7337
Blind Rivets can be found in materials:
Inserts provide an internal thread into thin sheet material and at the same time they can also function as a blind fastener to join two materials together.
Blind inserts are available in aluminium, steel and stainless steel, and are available with different head types: cylindrical, countersunk, reduced and with a hexagonal shaft, to prevent them from turning and closed end to prevent moisture entry.
