This 18-8 stainless steel open end blind rivet has a stainless steel break pull mandrel and a countersunk head. It meets Industrial Fasteners Institute (IFI) 114 Grade 51 specifications. The 18-8 stainless steel material type provides better corrosion resistance than zinc-plated steel. This blind rivet fastens objects in applications in which the back of the workpiece is inaccessible, such as fastening objects to tubing or walls.Rivets are permanent, non-threaded fasteners that fasten objects together. They consist of a head and a shank, which is deformed by a tool to hold the rivet in place. Blind rivets also have a mandrel, which helps insert the rivet and breaks off after insertion. Hand or pneumatic tools are used to insert a rivet into a pre-existing hole. When selecting a rivet, consider the style, the materials being fastened, the head type, the diameter, and the length, or grip range. Styles include solid and blind rivets.
