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.
