POP rivet for soft or brittle materials

Emhart Teknologies has announced its newest specialised rivet, intended for use when fastening soft, thin or brittle materials, without distorting the pliable material.

The LS rivet is designed to set in a tri-fold configuration which separates into three legged sections to ensure a secure joint.

Joaquin Sanchez, POP product manager explained: "With the myriad of plastics and composites used in today's industrial applications, it is essential to choose the right fastening solution. This distinctive set creates a large secondary head formation that will evenly distribute the load which is key in preventing any material damage, pull-through or rivet failure."

The LS rivet is characterised by a wide grip range which reduces the stocking requirement for multiple rivet sizes. The mandrel head is contained within the rivet body eliminating ratting joints and making the product ideal for use in applications across many industries, a company statement suggested.
