Rivet Application Types
For most applications see POP® Rivet Features & Benefits and find the most suitable rivet for your application.
For more difficult applications, see the recommendations below:
Weak Primary material
A large flange rivet can aid the setting process in applications with weak primary materials by spreading
the setting load.
Weak Secondary material
Weak secondary materials need a rivet that will be soft setting or that will spread on the blind side.
Air Gaps and Applications not Pre-clamped
Where a gap is present before setting, the rivet must provide a clamping action.
Unsupported Secondary material
Unsupported materials require rivets that will clamp the materials together during setting.
No-Through holes require a rivet that will expand and “bite” into the material.
Oversized holes require rivets that expand on setting to fill the hole or to cover the remaining gaps.
For applications with limited or awkward access, choose from our range of specialised setting heads and front end kits.
