Stainless Rivet Nuts From Stock
12 May 2014
Here at Roy Hopwood Fasteners, we have seen an increasing demand for stainless rivet nuts. As the UK manufacturing landscape appears to move towards a more differentiated offer. In order to compete with low cost manufacture around the globe, the use of specialist materials and construction methods has accelerated. A steadily growing demand for 304 stainless steel and 316 stainless steel nutserts was witnessed during the closing stages of 2013.
Working closely with our manufacturing partners Dejond, we are now pleased to announce a stock of 304 stainless blind rivet nuts, and an increasing inventory of 316 stainless products. The range covers M4 to M10 threads and includes thin sheet (low profile), countersunk, and flat head options; as well as both closed and open ended products.
The investment in this stock is a reflection of the demand for products being available with little or no lead time, and we look forward to supplying both new and existing customers with this high quality, European manufactured product line.

BBA Bulge Control Technology data sheets
05 Aug 2013
Roy Hopwood Fasteners have developed some useful data sheets for their BBA range of blind rivet nuts which incorporate BCT – Bulge Control Technology.
BCT is a new construction of Rivet Nuts. Four cross holes on the shank control where the bulge starts forming. The Controlled Bulge insures optimal fitting even into holes not perfectly round or irregular or oversized. Because the collapse can be controlled, these blind rivet nuts are particularly suitable for composite materials.The position of these cross holes and the dimensions of the product provide different types of BCT Rivet Nuts.
BBA BCT Multi Grip.
This version gives a grip range of almost three times a Standard Rivet Nuts.
One Rivet Nut is able to cover different grip ranges, typically from 0.5mm up to 6mm. They are ideal for applications in thin materials, as well as brittle and soft materials like plastic and rubber composites. The inventory reduction possibilities are obvious to production and value engineers; a single part number could replace several in current use.
BBA BCT High Strength.
Special material and heat treatment produce a very strong thread, and still the bulge is forming perfectly because of the cross holes. High Tensile BCT can be used for bolts of metric class 12.9 and above without damaging it’s thread.
BBA BCT Short.
the total length of this BCT is substantially reduced to go into applications where the back of the material space is limited, or there is other restricted access. Still this BCT product has a high quality thread according to bolt metric class 8.8 / 10.9.
Finally, there is a useful rivet nut selector tool available by following this link, just find your product and we will do the rest to help you. http://schruff-fasteners.com/main_en.php
