Thin Material Fastening & Blind Fastening Solutions in 1

Threaded Rivet Nuts Solve Thin Material & Blind Fastening Problems

When looking for fastening solutions for applications in thin materials where there is access from only one side of the working material, also known as a “blind” application, threaded rivet nuts can be the fasteners you are looking for. Threaded rivet nuts, also called blind threaded rivets, blind rivet nuts and threaded inserts, have the ability to provide permanent load-bearing threads in thin materials. Rivet nuts are ideal for tubing, extrusion, and similar applications.

  • Made from aluminum, brass, steel or stainless steelThread-Rivet-Nut-Group
  • Use in place of tapped holes, weld nuts, rivets, self-drilling & tapping screws
  • Only need access from “front” side of the workpiece
  • Provide strong permanent metal threads in metal or plastic materials
  • Can be installed in materials as thin as 0.020″ / 0.50mm
  • Help promote thinner and lighter product designs

Threaded Rivet Nut Classifications

Threaded rivets nuts can be classified into two basic groups – Standard Thread Rivet Nuts & Heavy-Duty Threaded Rivet Nuts

Standard Rivet Nuts: Are designed for most standard blind fastening applications that require permanently installed threads.

  • Available in unified and metric thread sizes #6-32 to 1/2″-16 and M4 thru M10

Heavy-Duty Rivet Nuts: Are designed for more demanding, high-performance blind fastening applications that require permanently installed threads. Heavy-duty rivet nuts feature heavy-duty head and sidewalls.

  • Available in unified and metric thread sizes #4-40 to 1/2″-13 and M3 thru M12

New Blind Rivet Lines

Blind rivets are designed for fastening materials together when you only have access to one side of the part or structure. Important factors you need to take into consideration when choosing the rivet for your next job include: grip range, shear strength & tensile strength.

  • Grip Range: the minimum and maximum thickness that the rivet is intended to hold together once installed.
  • Shear Strength: the maximum load that can typically be applied to the rivet that can be supported prior to failure and fracture.
  • Tensile Strength: the maximum tension applied load that can typically be applied to the rivet prior to failure and fracture.
