Large Flange Blind Rivets

Click image to enlarge
Large flange blind rivets, also known as POP rivets, nail rivets, breakstem fasteners and blind fasteners, are permanent fasteners that feature wider flanges to provide extra fastening power in applications involving sheet metal or other large materials. These rivets feature a larger flange diameter to provide adequate coverage for oversized or irregularly shaped holes, and to provide a more secure hold for applications involving soft materials.  
 
To join two pieces of material, the body of the rivet is inserted into a pre-drilled hole, then a nail rivet tool is used to pull the top of the mandrel to expand the body, clamping the two materials together. The force of the rivet tool then pops off the mandrel, leaving behind the domed head blind rivet.
 
Dome head blind rivets are used when only one side of a work surface is available and unlike standard rivets, only require one person for installation. Blind fasteners provide a fast and secure way to join materials and provide vibration resistance that cannot be achieved with nails or screws.
 
Large flange blind rivets from RC Fasteners provide a secure and durable fastening solution for a range of mechanical applications. They are fast and easy to install with a simple handheld tool, helping you save time and money without sacrificing quality.

Selecting the Correct Large Flange Head Rivet for Your Application

When selecting your dome head blind rivet, you will first want to choose a material that matches what is being used in your application. This can help prevent the galvanic reactions caused by steel and the resulting weakening of the rivet or surrounding material.
 
You also want to make sure the length of the nail rivet is sufficient to create a secure hold. The length of the rivet shank needs to match the thickness of the two pieces of material being fastened, plus you need to add 1.5 times the diameter of the rivet shank to the measurement. The grip range of the large flange blind rivet should also be sufficient for material thickness and the diameter should match the holes being drilled. Choosing a grip range or diameter that is too small or large will result in a less secure bond.
