SOLID, SEMI-TUBULAR & TUBULAR RIVETS

A rivet is a permanent mechanical fastener manufactured through a cold-forming process.

DEGOMETAL offers three types of rivets: solid rivets, semi-tubular rivets and tubular rivets.

Solid rivets consist of a solid cylindrical shaft with a "head" on one end, which might be Round, Flat or Countersunk. Their length  depends on the thickness of the materials being joined.

Semi-tubular or tubular rivets have gone through an additional step during forming, with the creation of a more or less deep cylindrical hole on the part opposite the head.

Setting description

The elements to be riveted have to be pre-drilled so that the rivet shaft can be inserted.

The buck-tail is squeezed until it is flattened and enlarged, to fasten the material to be riveted together : this process is called riveting.
