Nylon Snap Rivet

Using a Plastic Snap Rivet

You’ll need a few tools. First of all, with our Klip-It snap rivets , forget the pneumatic or manual riveting pliers. Also, make sure you have a good assortment of nylon snap rivets in different sizes. So you can choose the ones that work best for your project. Start by drilling a hole of the appropriate size in the parts to be assembled, using a drill adapted to the material of your panels. Sheet metal, plastic, etc. Make sure that the diameter of the hole matches that of the nylon snap rivets you have chosen. Then insert the nylon snap rivet into the hole you have drilled. Apply firm, even pressure to ensure that the nylon snap rivet is properly tightened. Once tightened, check that the rivet is secure. And that it provides a solid connection between the two parts.

Its Advantages

Firstly, nylon is a corrosion-resistant material. This makes it an ideal choice for applications requiring protection from external elements. Unlikesteel or brass, nylon will not rust or corrode over time. This makes it a durable and reliable material for fasteners used outdoors or in damp environments . What’s more, the nylon snap rivet provide a very good seal. This pressure is particularly advantageous in applications requiring a seal (air or water). Perfect for sheet metal components for building cladding or fastening systems for plasterboard. Nylon is also a lightweight , non-conductive material, which can be useful in certain applications.

Applications for our Nylon Snap Rivet

For example, in electrical installations, preferring a nylon snap rivet to its metal counterpart (stainless steel, iron, aluminium) avoids any potential short-circuit by preventing electrical conductivity. In addition, polyamid snap rivets offer excellent vibration resistance. Thanks to their specific design, these rivets are able to maintain a constant pressure on the assembled parts, even in the presence of vibrations. This makes them reliable fasteners in environments where vibration can be a problem, such as mechanical equipment or industrial installations. Finally, nylon also offers high shear strength. This means it can withstand heavy loads without deforming or breaking. This characteristic makes it a suitable choice for applications requiring high mechanical strength, such as the assembly of metal structures or the installation of fasteners in rigid materials.
