Rivet Type
   Rivet Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Belt       A belt rivet is a large-diameter, countersunk, headed rivet specifically designed to fasten belting material. 
   Blind       Blind rivets are used where the rivet is not accessible from both sides. They have an integral mandrel that permits the formation of an upset on the blind end of the rivet.  As the mandrel is pulled into or against the body being riveted, it breaks at or near the intersection of the mandrel shank and its upset end. Blind rivets are often used as an alternative to solid rivets. They are sometimes called breakstem or POP® rivets. POP is a registered trademark of Emhart Teknologies. 
   Brake and Clutch       Brake and clutch products are manufactured to dimensional and technical standards in solid, semi-tubular or fully tubular form. They are made from a variety of materials, including aluminum, steel, copper and brass. Products include rivets for brake linings, clutch facings, and disc brake pads. 
   Collar       Collar rivets are a variation of shoulder rivets. A collar rivet does not have a head. Instead, the rivet has features to captivate on both sides of a center shoulder. 
   Compression       Compression rivets are comprised of two members: a tubular female half and a solid male rivet. The two pieces are placed in a pre-drilled hole with the solid male rivet on one side and the female tubular half on the other. The diameter of the solid rivet is matched to the diameter of the hole in the tubular rivet so that a compression or press fit is formed when the two halves are squeezed together. 
   Drive       Drive rivets have a center pin that when driven in flush with the rivet head, causes the rivet to expand on the back side and secure. Drive rivets are also called drive pin rivets. 
   N-type       N-type rivets have a break mandrel and a semi-filled core. They are often used to tack light sheets together where minimal stresses are exerted. N-type rivets are also called N rivets or nail rivets. 
   Panel       Panel rivets are one of many types of rivets used to secure panels. 
   Plastic       Plastic rivets are ideal for non-conductive and non-corrosive environments. They can be used to fasten plastic to plastic, metal, or fiberglass. Brand names for plastic rivets include Uni-Tap®, a registered trademark of U.S.E. Diamond, Inc. 
   Push       Push rivets are reusable rivets that are designed for fixing panels or joining components together. Push rivets are easy to install and do not require tooling. 
   Q-type       The Q-type rivet features a break mandrel and filled core. It is similar to the N-type rivet, but has a mandrel neck that is knurled to lock the mandrel in the rivet body and assist in creating a seal. The mandrel breaks relatively flush with the rivet head in midgrip, increasing shear strength. Q-type rivets are used in applications that require shear strength greater than that provided by N-type rivets. 
   Ratchet       A ratchet rivet is a two-part fastener that attaches panels by pressing the head into the shaft. The head can then be unscrewed to dismantle the panels. Ratchet rivets have a finished head on both sides. They are usually made of plastic. 
   Rivet Nut       Rivet nuts are internally-threaded fasteners that are designed to be used as a rivet from one side of a workpiece or assembly, and to provide threads for a screw or bolt to be used in the assembly of a mating part. 
   Self Piercing       Self-piercing rivets do not require pre-drilled holes. Instead, the rivet shaft pierces both materials before the connection is made. Because a self-piercing rivet must penetrate the material, the strength of the materials to be joined must be limited with respect to the rivet. 
   Semi-tubular       Semi-tubular rivets have a coaxial, cylindrical or tapered hole in the end opposite the head, the depth of which does not exceed 112% of the mean shank diameter. Semi-tubular rivets are similar to solid rivets, but require much less insertion force, allowing longer rivets to be used without causing the rivet shank to buckle. Semi-tubular rivets are used in impact riveting applications. Upon impact, the rivet end flares outward and follows the shape of the tool, until it rolls up against the surface of the workpiece. 
   Shoulder       A shoulder rivet has an integral shoulder surface below the rivet head. 
   Snap       Snap rivets are two-piece rivets that snap together. 
   Solid       Solid rivets have completely solid shafts with no internal cavities. Bending, hammering, or twisting the protruding end creates a strong, secure connection. Solid rivets are more difficult to attach than other types of rivets. They must be inserted with powered machinery. Variations of solid rivets include products with round heads and products with flat heads. 
   Split       Split rivets have two shanks that are spread apart once the rivet has been inserted. Split rivets are also called bifurcated rivets. 
   Tinners'       Tinners’ rivets are small fasteners with the same style head as flat head rivets. They are larger in diameter than flat head rivets and are used in sheet metal work.  
   T-type       The T-type or peel rivet features a break mandrel and filled core. During installation, knife action between the mandrel head and rivet shank splits the rivet into three petals that draw the sheets together. A T-type rivet mandrel breaks nearly flush with the rivet head in maximum grip. Because they are insensitive to hole size, T-type rivets work in oversized or elliptical holes. 
   Tubular       Tubular rivets have a coaxial, cylindrical hole in the headless end that exceeds 112% of the rivet shank diameter. They are designed for securing by splaying the end. Tubular rivets are used in self-piercing applications, where a pre-drilled hole is not required. Tubular rivets are also used in a wide variety of manufacturing areas, including industrial, aerospace and automotive applications. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary rivet type.

Head Style
   Head Style       
   Your choices are...         
   Brazier       Brazier or modified brazier rivets have an oval-shaped head. They are used in standard applications. 
   Cone / Pan       Cone or pan head rivets have a high profile. A cone head has a flat bearing surface and a flat top surface that rounds into a cylindrical side surface. 
   Countersunk       Countersunk rivets should be specified whenever a flush surface is required. They are sometimes called flush head rivets. 
   Dome / Button       Dome head rivets or buttonheads are the most versatile and most commonly specified head style. This type of fastener features a low profile and a neat appearance. The dome head has twice the diameter of the rivet body, providing enough bearing surface to retain all but extremely soft or brittle materials. 
   Flat       Rivets have a flat head and a conical bearing surface. Flat head rivets may be countersunk or flush. 
   Large Flange       Large flange rivets have twice the underhead bearing surface of dome head rivets. Typically, large flange rivets are used in applications where soft or brittle materials must be joined to a rigid backing material. 
   Mushroom       Rivets have a mushroom-shaped head with a large, underhead footprint to distribute the load on softer materials. 
   Oval       Rivets have an oval-shaped head. 
   Round / Snap       The cross-sectional shape of the rivet head is round. Round rivets are sometimes called snap head rivets. 
   Truss       Truss head rivets are used in applications where a low profile head is desired. In comparison to the fastener size, the diameter of the truss head is larger than the diameter of the corresponding round head. 
   Universal       Universal rivets have an oval-shaped head. Some manufactures refer to universal rivets as mushroom, brazier, oval or truss head rivets. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary head style.

Material / Finish
   Material       
   Your choices are...         
   Aluminum       Aluminum is a bluish, silver-white, malleable, ductile, light, trivalent, metallic element that has good electrical and thermal conductivity, high reflectivity, and resistance to oxidation.  Aluminum is lighter than steel, but not as strong. 
   Brass       Brass provides good strength, excellent high-temperature ductility, reasonable cold ductility, good conductivity, excellent corrosion resistance, good bearing properties and low magnetic permeability. 
   Bronze / Copper Base Alloy       A copper base alloy is a metal with copper as the main alloying metal and one or more other metals, such as tin, zinc, or phosphorus. Silicon bronze is a typical fastener alloy. 
   Copper       Copper is a common, reddish, metallic element that is both ductile and malleable. Copper is one of the best conductors of heat and electricity. It also exhibits good corrosion resistance. 
   Inconel® / Incoloy®       Inconel® and Incoloy® (Special Metals Corporation) provide good strength and excellent resistance to oxidation and carbonization in high temperatures environments, and in many aqueous environments. These proprietary materials are used in process piping, heat exchangers, heating element sheathing and nuclear steam generator tubing. Typically, Inconel and Incoloy are used at service temperatures below 650° C (1200° F). 
   Monel®       Monel® (Special Metals Corporation) is a proprietary, high-strength material that offers resistance to a range of corrosive media such as seawater, hydrofluoric and sulfuric acids, and alkalis. 
   Plastic       Products are made of thermoplastic materials. 
   Rubber       Synthetic rubber includes grades such as neoprene, silicone, and Norprene® (Norton Co.). Rubber fasteners are used in specialized applications for vibration damping and silencing. 
   Steel       Steel is a commercial iron that contains carbon in any amount up to about 1.7 percent as an essential alloying constituent. Many grades of carbon and alloy steels are used as fastener materials. Steel may require coating for protection against corrosion. 
   Hardened Steel       Steel can be hardened in a number of ways. Methods include quenching techniques in oil and water, and passing the steel through induction chambers. During processing, the rapid cooling of steel freezes, traps and packs the carbon atoms inside the shrunken iron crystals. The resulting steel is very hard and brittle. Hardened steel is strong, but cannot absorb much shock or impact without breaking. 
   Stainless Steel       Stainless steel is chemical and corrosion resistant and can have relatively high stress ratings. Many grades are used in fasteners. Often, stainless steel does not require an anti-corrosion coating; however, most stainless steels cannot be hardened to the same degree as carbon steels. 
   Titanium       Titanium is a hard, lustrous, silvery element that is relatively abundant in the Earth's crust. It is valued for its lightness, strength, and corrosion resistance.  Titanium is used widely in the aerospace industry and in medical products such as replacement joints. When alloyed with other metals, especially steel, titanium adds strength and oxidation resistance. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary metallic materials.

   Finish       
   Your choices are...         
   Anodize       Anodizing is a process for finishing aluminum alloys that uses the electrolytic oxidation of the aluminum surface to produce a protective oxide coating. The anodic coating consists of hydrated aluminum oxide and is resistant to corrosion and abrasion. Conventional coatings are 0.1 to 1.0 mils thick and are mostly transparent, but may be colored. Anodizing preserves the natural luster and texture of the metal. Anodized coatings are hard, durable, will never peel, and, under normal conditions, will never wear through. Standard and decorative colors are available. This category includes hard-coat anodizing. 
   Black Oxide       Black oxide is a conversion coating that causes virtually no dimensional change. It is a uniform, continuous conversion of the existing metal to a black form of rust. Black oxide is used on components where tight tolerances are needed. It is used mostly as a decorative coating. 
   Chrome       Chrome finish is an electroplated coating that is applied for purposes of lubricity, wear resistance, and decoration. Chrome provides a bright and highly reflective finish. 
   Galvanized       Galvanizing immerses clean, oxide-free iron or steel into molten zinc in order to apply a zinc coating that is metallurgically bonded to the iron or steel surface. The zinc coating protects the surface against corrosion in two ways. First, it shields the base metal from the atmosphere. Second, because zinc is more electronegative than iron or steel, the coating reacts with corroding agents, providing a longer service life for the part. 
   Gold       Gold plating provides total resistance to oxidation and corrosion. It is electrically conductive and can be alloyed with cobalt to produce a wear-resistant finish. 
   Nickel Plated       Nickel plating is a common form of electrolytic deposition. 
   Phosphate       Phosphate coatings are applied via the chemical or electrochemical treatment of a metal’s surface. These corrosion-resistant coatings provide a surface for the improved adhesion of primers and paints. 
   Silver       Silver is the most electrically conductive plating finish. It is used in electronic fasteners for electrical conductivity and signal transmittance. Silver oxidizes rapidly, but resists corrosion. 
   Tin       Tin plating is applied to electronic fasteners that are made of brass. 
   Zinc Plated       Zinc plating is a common form of plating that provides corrosion resistance. 
   Zinc Chromate (Yellow)       Fasteners have a yellow zinc chromate finish. 
   Other       Other unlisted finish.

Fastener Standards
   Fastener Standards       
   Your choices are...         
   AIA / NAS       Dimensional and material standards for aircraft fasteners are developed by the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) and/or its National Aerospace Standards Committee (NASC). All drawings and specifications have a NAS or NASM prefix. NAS is an acronym for National Aerospace Standards. NASM is an acronym for National Aerospace Standards, Metric. 
   AN / MS       Dimensional standards for aircraft fasteners are developed by the Aeronautical Standards Group. All drawings have a prefix of AN or MS. Products are suitable for army, navy, or air force use.  
   ASME / ANSI       The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) B18 standard specifies all ASME B18 fastener products with a single 18-digit PIN code system. Approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and adopted by the U.S. Department of Defense, the ASME B18.24 PIN system is a self-contained code that covers 788 unique B18 fastener types from 72 ASME B18 source documents. The PIN code system is fully parametric, uniform across all fastener types, and is intended as a digital alternative to the traditional plain text fastener product callout prescribed in the "Designation" or "Ordering" section of the applicable source document. 
   BS       Dimensional and material standards developed by the British Standards Institution.  Standards are designated with a BS prefix.  The British Standards International (BSI) Kitemark indicates that products are tested regularly against the requirements of an appropriate BSI standard, and that the manufacturer's quality system is assessed at least twice a year to ensure continued quality production.  
   DIN       DIN is an acronym for Deutsches Institut für Normung (DIN), a German national organization for standardization. Most metric fasteners are manufactured according to DIN standards. Although DIN predates the International Standards Organizations (ISO), DIN standards are being revised to more closely match ISO standards. Ordering DIN fasteners requires three pieces of information: the DIN identifier, which defines the style of the fastener; the material (e.g., 8.8 Steel, 316 Stainless, Hastelloy C276); and the coating or plating (if any). 
   ISO       The International Standards Organization (ISO) is a worldwide federation of national standards organizations from over 100 countries. ISO's mission is to facilitate the international exchange of goods and services, and to foster cooperation in the spheres of intellectual, technological, and economic activity. ISO standards for metric fasteners are gaining recognition rapidly. They will probably become global standards. 
   JIS       Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) is largely based on DIN; however, some standards have been modified to meet the needs of the Japanese market. Most of the fasteners used in electronic equipment manufactured in Japan comply with the JIS standard. 
   SAE       Fasteners meet standards developed by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), a worldwide organization that establishes industry standards for the testing, measurement, and design of automobiles and their components. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary fastener standards.
