Q Fully Sealed Fastening


Fully Sealed Fastening:



Closed End/Sealing Rivets should be specified for all of the many appli­cations where a fully sealed fasten­ing is essential. This rivet design produces a seal that prevents passage of liquid or vapour at pressures up to 500 psi.

Q General Design Practice


The success of any fastener depends on how well it's applied and POP rivets are no exception. Careful design will produce good fastenings. 

Some of the variables to consider are:

  • Joint type, configuration, thick­ness, and material
  • Hole size
  • Tool access
  • Rivet size, material, and spacing
  • Tightness of clinch
  • Hole type

In addition, we offer the ser­vices of our engineering staff to help with unusual requirements.
