Several advantages of using rivets
Riveting is one of the oldest joining techniques and is still very popular today. Riveting offers several advantages in comparison to other joining methods. Riveted joint can be used in different industries for joining two or more parts made from different materials. Rivets are used to avoid the thermal effect from heating and deformations which may occur with other types of joining, such as welding. The friction force between the two surfaces is even distributed along the riveted joint.

They can be used for a variety of purposes - in structural work, furniture industry and even as decorative elements. We offer solid rivets made of brass (CuZn), aluminium (Al), stainless steel (INOX), iron (Fe), copper (Cu) and silver (Ag).
