Solid Rivets are the oldest and simplest type of rivet, their use going back to Ancient Egyptian times. Like all rivets, their purpose is to tightly clamp two pieces of material together. A solid rivet consists of a smooth cylindrical shaft, with a flat or rounded head on one end. Unlike a blind rivet, free access to both sides of the joint is required. The rivet is placed in a pre-drilled hole, and the tail end of the rivet is deformed by pressure until the pieces are tightly clamped together. Blind rivets are extensively used in steel construction, ship building, aeroplane construction.
Solid Rivets Diameters
Solid Rivets are available on the FCH Network with Imperial/US diameters that range from #00 to 6 and with Metric diameters that range from M2 to M12. The length of Solid Rivets is usually measured from the point to the underside of the head.
Solid Rivets are available on the FCH Network in materials that range from Steel to Rubber, Buna-N etc.
Solid Rivets Finishes
Solid Rivets are available on the FCH Network in finishes or coatings that range from Plain to Tin
