Blind Rivets are so called as the user can not usually reach the back of the job (or blindside). Rivets can be a cheap, versatile and reliable method of fixing product especially light gauge material.

As a rule the shell material of the rivet should be the same as the material under the head. If you are fixing aluminium to steel then a steel head is preferred. Shell diameters are denoted by a code as below:

  • 3 – 3/32
  • 4 – 1/8
  • 5 – 5/32
  • 6 – 3/16
  • 8 – 1/4

There are several types blind rivets including:

  • Large Flanged Rivets (ASL) – The clamping force is spread out over a wider area.
  • Aluminium Sealed Rivets (TA) – The base is sealed and thus waterproof. Used in watertanks, roofing and aluminium windows.
  • Aluminium Peel Rivets (ASP) – Useful on uneven surfaces, where oversized holes remain after repairs and ideal for upholstery, rubber and fibreglass.

Nutserts are designed to provide load bearing threads in thin sheet materials.
