Blind Rivet Basics

Easy, secure and speedy fastening

Blind rivets offer high speed, reliable riveting. They are also easy to use, requiring just a little training using a riveter (a lightweight hand tool about the size of an electric drill).

 

Only need access to one side of an assembly

Blind rivets are ideal for fastening workpieces that can only be accessed from one side, are in tight places, or are large and difficult to handle.

 

Reliable fastening

Blind rivets provide highly reliable fastening and are used in a variety of industries and applications. They also are ideal for fastening dissimilar materials that are difficult to weld together, such as aluminum and steel.

 

Reduction in initial investment

Blind rivets only require an inexpensive hand-held riveter to use them and thus require a low initial investment.

 
Fastening with Blind Rivets
Types

Standard Type

Blind Rivet | Standard Type
These are the most common type of blind rivet used in various industries and are globally recognized as a standard fastener.

FX type / Various fastening thicknesses

Blind Rivet | FX type | Various fastening thicknesses
These one-size-fits-all rivets can be used to fasten a wide range of workpiece thicknesses. They have a bright finish and high clamping strength.

GT type / High strength fastening

Blind Rivet | GT type | High strength fastening
The larger diameter folds of the GT type fasten workpieces tightly.

CP type / Waterproof seal

Blind Rivet | CP type / Waterproof seal
These rivets utilize a built-in plastic cap to provide waterproof fastening. They also help to prevent galvanic corrosion between the rivet and workpiece.

PL type / Fastening soft workpieces

Blind Rivet | PL type / Fastening soft workpieces
The end of the PL type rivet splits into four petal-like sections. It is ideal for fastening softer workpieces such as plywood or plastic.

PLX Type ( Mandrel head fixed type )

Blind Rivet | PLX Type ( Mandrel head fixed type )
Best for fastening lighter workpieces together. The head of the mandrel is fastened firmly inside the rivet after fastening (compare to PL type ), this prevents unwanted noise in the final application and reduces swarf.

HL type / Lower crumple height

Blind Rivet | HL type / Lower crumple height
These are the most common type of blind rivet used in various industries and are globally recognized as a standard fastener.
Examples of Customized Blind Rivets

Stepped rivet

Blind Rivet | Stepped rivet
The step on these rivets provides a consistent final fastening height. These rivets are used in many applications as pivots or support pins.

Sealing type

Blind Rivet | Sealing type
The enclosed sleeve design of these rivets provides an excellent seal after fastening.

Improved-shear-strength type

Blind Rivet | Improved-shear-strength type
A larger portion of the mandrel remains in the head after fastening to provide greater shear strength.

Conductive rivet

Blind Rivet | Conductive rivet
Rivets made of electrically conductive copper alloy. Ideal for certain connector applications.

Blind hole fitting type

Blind Rivet | Blind hole fitting type
Blind hole rivets can be used to fasten two workpieces together without the need for a through hole.
