Masterfix high strength rivets
Masterfix High strength (also known as structural) rivets are especially designed for heavy duty applications, such as in the automotive industry and in the construction industry. In short, everywhere, where high loads are combined with a need for reliability.
High strength rivets are recognised for their high tensile and shear strengths and mandrel retention capacity.
Masterfix has several high strength rivet options to select from.
The Masterfix Masterbulb is a newcomer in the range of standard high strength rivets Masterfix is offering. The Masterbulb is a heavy duty rivet suitable for demanding and safety critical applications.
Both the steel and stainless steel Masterbulb rivets form a large secondary flange on the rear side of the joint after setting. This makes this rivet ideal for high strength assembly in thin sheets.
High tensile and shear strengths
Permanent mandrel retention, avoids rattling of retained mandrels sections
Good hole fill capacity compensates for oversized, slotted or misaligned holes
Provides a large back side bearing area
Good spreading of the clamping load
Can be set with a standard flat nose piece
Available in steel and stainless steel versions
The Masterlock has been engineered to fulfil a market need for a high clamp blind fastener, for thin sheet applications. Large diameter head and broad flange on the rear side of the joint diffuses the load over a large area, ensuring a strong and permanent clamp. This unique fastener also features a pointed hole-seeking tip, which ensures quick and easy installation.
Similar in many ways to Masterbulb, but suitable for thicker material joints
Available in 6.4 mm diameters
Available in steel and aluminium versions
The blind rivet with a multigrip clamping range and a high tensile and shear strength offers a high resistance to vibrations and a good watertight connection. After setting, the spent mandrel end is retained in the body permanently owing to the special mandrel locking system.
The special locking mechanism increases the clamping force
After setting, the mandrel is locked permanently
High resistance to vibrations
Large clamping capacity
