Aluminum Trifold (Exploding) Rivets

Aluminum trifold rivets are used for assembly of soft, brittle or thin materials. The trifold formation on the blind side applies the rivet's clamping force over an increased area, reducing the risk of cracking brittle materials such as some plastics and compensating for irregular or oversized holes.
We offer aluminum trifold rivets in 3/16" diameter with dome and large flange heads. Pay close attention to the grip range for a specific part when ordering as the shorter rivets do not work well outside their intended grip range.
