RIVNUT® Elastic

RIVNUT® Elastic is a detachable blind rivet joint with vibration and noise-decoupling function.

Characteristics

RIVKLE® Elastic
  • The best solution for fastening a high-strength thread body to a thin-walled component
  • Often for hollow bodies, housings or components with only one-sided accessibility, process-reliable one-sided installation is the only alternative
  • Repeatedly detachable joint
  • Decoupling of vibration and noise
  • Insulating

Technology

Blind rivet nuts for vibration and noise-decoupling

RIVNUT® Elastic consists of a metal body with a metric thread (in most cases) and a wrapping of elastomer or thermoplastic elastomer.

This fastener is an innovative solution when a high-strength thread body must be fastened to a thin-walled component. It is additionally proven by its noise and vibration-decoupling properties.

Blind rivet nuts for vibration and noise-decoupling

When installed, RIVNUT® Elastic is inserted from one side into the mounting hole of the support part.
Until the final fastening, the clamping cams serve as a locking device.
Since the metal body (standard: brass) is only connected with the wrapping in the lower area, a bulge forms and touches the component to be fastened on the backside, when a screw is screwed in. This is a reversible rivet joint.
