Rapid Rivet carries a comprehensive selection of aircraft rivets to meet with the needs of fastener distributors, OEMs, and hardware suppliers. Aircraft rivets are frequently known as aircraft blind rivets, which are used to assemble panels and skins to the frames of an aircraft fuselage or other aerospace structure. Aircraft blind rivets are aptly named, as they allow for installation when a joint can only be accessed from one side of a structure.
Cherry blind rivets and Huck blind rivets are types of aircraft blind rivets that we maintain within our inventory. Aircraft blind rivets consist of two or three components: the rivet body or sleeve, and a setting device known as a mandrel, and, in the case of three piece blind rivets, a locking ring. These rivets are available in range of aerospace grade alloy combinations—the most common consisting of an aluminum sleeve and mandrel, and an aluminum sleeve with a stainless steel, Inconel, or alloy steel mandrel. Monel, Inconel, and stainless steel aircraft blind rivet combinations are also available.
Aircraft blind rivets are manufactured in both 100-degree countersunk and universal—also known as protruding—head styles. We provide many different types/series of aircraft blind rivets to meet with a wide range of industrial specs, such as Max rivets (NAS9301 through NAS9312 series), Wiredraw rivets (NAS1398 and NAS1399 series), Bulb rivets (NAS1738 and NAS1739 series), self-plugging rivets (MS20600 and MS20601 series), and the non-structural pull-thru rivets (MS20604 and MS20605 series).
