      RIVELITGrooved blind rivet

      Blind rivets can be used for fast and robust assembly of parts with different thicknesses and made from different materials with access from only one side.
      Grooved.Wooden assemblies.

      The Rivelit® grooved blind rivet, also known as the “stem break” rivet, is a high-performance, permanent fastening system. It enables the assembly of two or more mechanical systems.

      It is called “blind” because it allows assembly of parts accessible only from one side of the parts to be joined. The two parts to be joined must be drilled beforehand.

      It consists of 2 parts: the rivet body with a head also known as a “colorette” and the rivet nail.

      Principles of use :

      Setting a blind rivet requires the use of a tool.
      This tool can be manual, oleopneumatic or electric, depending on the type of rivet to be set and the type of application.

      The grooved blind rivet is inserted into the workpiece bore. The setting tool pulls the blind rivet stem so as to deform the rivet body and secure it to the workpiece. When the breaking force is reached, the rivet stem breaks at the break point and is simply discarded.

      How to choose the right rivet?

      Installing rivets is easy. To ensure success, all you need to do is choose the right rivet.

      To do this, you need to ask yourself 5 questions :

      • What type of rivet do I need? This will be determined by the materials to be joined and the use to be made of them.
      • What nail material do I need? This will depend on the load to be supported and the degree of corrosion resistance preferred.
      • What rivet head do I need? A countersunk head will enable flush assembly, a flat head will provide the best mechanical resistance, and a wide head will be ideal for better distribution of the clamping force and avoid any deformation of the parts to be assembled.
      • What diameter should the rivet have? This is determined by the diameter of the hole.
      • How long should the rivet be? This will depend on the total thickness to be crimped, the required tensile strength and shear strength.

      Different head shapes, materials and dimensions :

      Rivelit fluted blind rivets are available in 3.2, 4.0 and 4.8mm diameter plate heads. Material options are : Aluminum/Steel and Steel/Aluminum.

      The particularities of the grooved rivet : 

      The grooved rivet is a rivet whose body is completely covered with flutes. It is an excellent fastening system for wood assemblies and blind riveting, also known as “blind” riveting, because its inverted grooves enable it to grip the walls of the parts to be joined.
