Klamp-Tite® non-structural

Aluminum alloy breakstem fasteners with a split tail formation providing a very large blind side bearing area against the rear sheet


The Avdel non-structural Klamp-Tite® aluminium rivet has a large blind-side bearing area making it an ideal rivet for use in thin sheet or low strength materials. The Klamp-Tite® rivet is also available as a structural product, containing a visible mechanical lock to give extra strength to the joint. Structural and non-structural Klamp-Tite® fasteners are ideal rivets for plastic assembly.
