Triangle Fastener Publishes Pullout And Pullover Data For Blind Rivets
Pittsburgh, PA - Triangle Fastener Corporation has announced
the publication of pullout and pullover test data for blind rivets. It is thought to be the only published data of its kind, pertaining specifically to metal claddings.
The blind rivet tests were conducted as a direct result of requests by the design and engineering community who use rivet pullout and pullover strength when designing various steel or aluminum panels systems. Some blind rivet connections may experience
tensile loading, which can lead to pullout, pullover, or tensile failure of the rivet.
The pullout and pullover tests were conducted at an independent laboratory and includes ultimate load values and the mode of failure. Test results can be found on the TFC website, and a copy of the independent test report is available by contacting the TFC Tech Center, located in Cleveland, Ohio, at 216-563-9933.
