Bulbing rivet offers wide grip range and an attractive finish on installation
03 June 2010
Avdel has introduced two new 6.4mm breakstem fasteners, the Avibulb XT and Avinox XT. The novel bulb formation and a special stem and body geometry create the widest grip range of any bulbing rivet in the market, whilst offering high shear and tensile performance and a wide hole tolerance. The bulb formation also helps to create a weather resistant seal for a longer lasting and more reliable joint.
A grip range of 1.5 to 9.0 mm is covered using just two part numbers, reducing inventory and enabling greater fastener standardisation.
During installation, the large footprint provided by the blind side bulb formation ensures load spreading - ideal for soft or brittle materials. The bulb also ensures that the installed fasteners are aesthetically pleasing.
Shear strengths are 11.1 kN for the Avibulb XT and 14.3 kN for the Avinox XT.
