General Rivet information
1. Joint strength
Determine the tensile and shear values required for your application. These are functions for the total joint strength, fastener spacing, rivet body material and rivet diameter.Always ensure you select a rivet which offers the correct shear and tensile value as required.
2. Joint thickness
To determine the required grip of the rivet, measure the total thickness of the materials to be joined. Refer to the grip range column and select the appropriate rivet accordingly. Ensure you cover the working grip range accordingly or formation of the rivet will be compromised.
3. Nature of materials
The rivet and the material to be fastened will affect overall joint strength. As a rule rivet materials should have the same physical and mechanical properties as the materials to be fastened. A marked dissimilarity could cause joint failure due to galvanic corrosion or material corrosion.
4. Hole size
Hole size is an important factor. If the hole is too small it can make rivet insertion difficult. If the hole is too large this can reduce shear and tensile strengths and could cause other factors resulting in rivet failure. Best practice is to follow hole size recommendations whilst always avoiding burrs in and around holes.
5. Head Style
The low-profile dome head rivet style is appropriate for most applications. However when your application contains soft of brittle materials a large flanged head rivet should be considered as it offers twice the bearing surface. For a flush surface finish a countersunk head style could be selected.
