  • The solid rivet is the most widely used mechanical fastener in construction and manufacturing assembly. It offers the user these advantages:

    • Its cost is low
    • It allows high rate of production with minimal investment in machinery.
    • It facilitates joining different materials of differing thicknesses.
    • It has high shear strength.
    • It is consistently applied by unskilled labor.
    • It provides a tamper-resistant permanent joint.
    • It is versatile – can be structural yet decorative.

    A typical application for solid rivets would be within the structural parts of aircraft.  Hundreds of thousands of solid rivets are used to put together the frame of a modern airplane.  Such solid rivets come with rounded (universal) or countersunk heads.  Typical aircraft rivets are composed of aluminum alloys, titanium, and nickel-based alloys.

    The setting of solid rivet fasteners requires access from both sides of the structures.  Solid rivets are driven using hydraulically driven squeezing tools or even handheld hammers.  When only one side is available, blind rivets are more appropriate tools.

    Various rivet head styles and materials are available – Round Head Rivets, Brazier Head Rivets, Flat Head Rivets, Countersunk Head Rivets, Button Head Rivets, Mushroom Head Rivets, Universal Head Rivets, Tinners Rivets, Oval Head Rivets, Tubular Rivets, Semi-Tubular Rivets.

    All are available as Steel Rivets, Stainless Steel Rivets, Monel Rivets and Aluminum Rivets.
