The Avdel® Avinox® stainless steel rivet offers a high-strength fastening solution ideal for thin sheet metals. This industrial fastener provides good corrosion resistance in applications subject to elevated temperatures.

The Avinox® retained stem has a number of advantages including no damage, electrical problems, or rattling due to loose stems.

The stainless steel breakstem provides excellent bulbing tail formation and high shear and tensile strength.

Assembly applications include automotive, cabinets and enclosures, heating and ventilating, telecommunications, marine engineering, food processing, and medical equipment.
