If you are looking for advice and expertise knowledge on the most suitable type of rivet to use for your job, come to RIVCO, we will give you sound advice and good grounding.
There are various types of BLIND RIVETS. They range from dome head, countersunk, peeled, sealed, to large flange rivets. The peeled rivets are suitable for joining plastics, rubber, wood and laminates on to the inside of metal sheeting. If you want to fix soft based materials such as wood and plastic to metal then a large flanged rivet would be the perfect rivet to use. The blind rivets are available in aluminium, steel and stainless steel. One of our special blind rivets are MONEL rivets. They are made from a nickel copper alloy making them very strong and suitable to use in very corrosive environments.
We manufacture SOLID and SEMI-TUBULAR RIVETS. They are available in aluminium, steel, brass and copper. The application of these types of rivets is very specific, e.g. used in the manufacture of hinges, pallets, ladders, shelving, truck bodies, etc.
RIVNUTS are a type of fastener which is becoming more and more popular in the metal and fiberglass industry. By using a rivnut, a thread is created within a product, creating a source of attachment.
We also supply MONOBOLTS and “HUCK” BOLTS to the trucking industry. In this field we have a specialised sales representative who has been dealing with “HUCK” products for the past 10 years.
We pride ourselves as being the only “POP”/ “TUCKER” agency in South Africa. We stock a wide variety of top quality “POP” RIVETERS (hand and air) and RIVNUT TOOLS.
