Pop Rivets Specifications
A blind rivet is a rivet that can be completely installed from one side, unlike machine screws and nuts, which require access to both sides of the material. Blind rivets are also known as “pop” rivets because POP® is one brand of blind rivets.
Blind pop rivet fastening systems are extremely versatile and are mainly used in applications where access to the rear or blind side of the joint does not exist. Pop rivets are manufactured with a two-piece construction design; the first is the rivet body or the shell and the other is the stem or mandrel. Both parts are pre-assembled and ready to use. Fastening is done by using a special tool to draw the mandrel which causes the body to deform and clamp the joint. Once the designed clamping force is reached, the mandrel snaps and is discarded.
Pop Rivet Application
POP Rivets have a widely application just if they are properly installed. Most of them are used in RVs, Trailers, Aircrafts, Machinery, Jeans, Small Electronics, Structural Beams, Battleships and Submersibles.
To use a blind rivet, a hole is drilled then the rivet is seated inside of the hole. Then a tool pulls the mandrel against the hat of the rivet. The back of the mandrel either has a bulge on the end or is connected to the hat in some way which makes the edges of the hat expand down towards the material. Once this expansion reaches the material and builds pressure, a designed fault in the mandrel reaches its peak force capacity and snaps. Leaving a properly installed rivet.
Pop rivets have a lot of advantages includes cost-effective, allowing for joining of parts when there is limited rear access, durable,and lighter than screws and bolts, depending on material
They are used to make high-strength joints in a range of materials, including metals, plastics, wood, and leather. Typically, the process is used for joining plastic or sheet metal.
To enable pop rivets to meet the requirements of a wide variety of applications, they are available in many materials, including:
- Aluminum-1100:Commercially pure aluminum for extremely soft or brittle materials; for lower shear/tensile requirements
- Aluminum-5052:Best used where shear&&tensile is required;good corrosion resistance
- Aluminum-5056:Best used where higher shear&tensile is required; good corrosion resistance
- Aluminum-5154:Used for special products/applications
- The steel-C1002-C1010:General purpose used: used for all steel rivet mandrels
- Stainless steel-300 Series: Austenitic stainless steel: offers good corrosion resistance
- Nickel Copper Alloy-400:Offers extremely high corrosion resistance; has excellent elevated temperature properties
- Copper-110:Used where electrical conductivity is required
