Rivets are actually used all around us across a whole host of applications. These mechanical fasteners are available in different shapes and sizes depending on your need; the fact that these rivets are used in industries from aviation to construction, gives you an idea of the variety we can offer. Our range includes, but is not limited to, types such as push-in and snap rivets manufactured in nylon and plastic.
These expansion rivets can be set 'blind' without the need for access to the back of the panel. Set by pulling the mandrel head into the rivet body, expanding the rivet body and causing it to flare against the reverse side. When sufficient force is applied, the mandrel will snap at its break point. Installed with a pop rivet installation tool (not currently offered by Essentra). Particularly good for soft materials.
Mini Snap Rivets
Mini Snap Rivets snap together easily by hand pressure to combine a set thickness. They are sold separately as the male and female version, where the male version determines the maximum panel thickness it can connect.
Plastic Blind Rivets
Plastic Blind Rivets, also known as Clinch Rivets, work with a large range of panel thickness. They are easy to install by inserting the U-shaped body into the hole and tapping the T-shaped head with a hammer until flush.
