Similarly to Accu's standard range of Dome Rivets, Sealed Dome Rivets are designed to permanently fix sheets of overlaid metal. The unique feature of a Sealed Rivet is that it features a locking mandrel (central pin) which creates a vibration-proof watertight seal when installed. Sealed Dome Rivets only require access to one side of a structure or part during installation, making them suitable for ‘blind’ installation. Rivets are primarily designed to support shear loads (perpendicular to the rivet shaft) but can also be used for fastening against light tension forces (parallel with the rivet shaft).
Accu's range of Solid Rivets provide a more heavy-duty fastening solution, but are not suitable for ‘blind’ installation, and must be manually deformed from the tail-end.
Sealed Dome Rivets are available in A2 and Marine Grade A4 Stainless Steel.
Metric Sealed Dome Rivets
Sealed Dome Rivets are manufactured according to ISO 16585, and are available in metric diameters of between 3.20mm and 6.40mm. Lengths of between 6.00mm and 20.00mm are also available.
