Structural blind fastener introduced in aluminium version

A structural fastener in aluminium has been introduced by Avdel in addition to the steel version. The 10mm Monobolt is a multi-grip structural breakstem fastener that creates a fully sealed joint with a visible lock

The rivet is specially designed to suit a wide range of applications for the automotive, commercial vehicle, construction and general industrial markets where high shear and tensile strengths are needed.

This 10mm rivet resists shear up to 12.6 kN and tension up to 9.3 kN. The fastener works along the same principle as the 6.4 mm and 4.8 mm Monobolt rivets and has a grip range between 3.1 and 15.8 mm, Making it a truly versatile and reliable extension to the Monobolt fastener range.

The fastener can easily be placed with Avdel's 7287 tool from. The extended stroke of 29 mm enables a single pull action as opposed to the two pull action necessary with many other tools on the market. To increase operator comfort, the pistol weight has been kept as light as possible weighing under 2.5 kg.
