Standard Blind Rivets

Blind rivets are utilized in applications where one side of the desired connection point is not easily accessed. Blind rivets contain a mandrel which is pulled towards the rivet head in order to set the rivet. The base of the mandrel bulges the end of the rivet as it is pulled inside the rivet, providing a secure grip against the underside or "blind" side of the application. The mandrel is then sheared off flush with the rivet head and ejected leaving behind the low profile visible head of the rivet. Blind rivets come in a variety of types including open-end rivets, closed-end rivets, tri-fold rivets, split rivets and multi-grip rivets.


American Standard (IFI-114) Rivets

American Standard (IFI-114) Rivets

Material choices include: All-Aluminum, Aluminum Rivet w/ Steel Mandrel, All-Steel, Stainless Rivet w/ Steel Mandrel and All-Stainless. We also offer a complete range of Metric Standard blind rivets produced in European facilities.
Closed-End Rivets

Closed-End Rivets

Used mainly in electronics or electric applications, closed end rivets have a lower profile on the blind side of the connection point. Generally, the mandrels of closed-end rivets are smaller than their equivalent open-end rivet.
Dome Peel Rivets

Dome Peel Rivets

Dome Peel Rivets split into four legs providing a large blind side bearing head for improved support in brittle, soft or ductile materials.
Multi-Grip Rivets

Multi-Grip Rivets

GESIPA's PolyGrip rivets feature a wide grip range enabling a single Polygrip to replace up to 3 lengths of standard blind rivets. The PolyGrip's hole-filling rivet body expands within the application material for better joint integrity. The large blind-side closing head with locked mandrel core provides better support and improved sealing for weather resistance. Polygrips are available in three head styles. Material choices include Aluminum, Steel and Stainless Steel.
Open-End Rivets

Open-End Rivets

The most common blind rivet, open end rivets come in a variety of head styles including button head, large flange and countersunk.
Tri-Fold Rivets

Tri-Fold Rivets

GESIPA Tri-fold rivets form three folded legs that distribute the fastener's clamp-load over a larger blind side head formation. The larger blind side offers increased pull-through resistance in soft and ductile material applications. Tri-fold rivets are used in automotive applications such as plastic body panels, trim, and interior components.
