Perma-Rivet

Thread Kits Company offers a full line of headed rivets for general consumer and industrial applications. The materials and manufacturing processes used to head rivet bodies increase their shear and tensile values over a stamped eyelet-style rivet.

Perma-Rivets are used to fasten together two or more pieces of material of varying thickness. The rivet body alloy, in addition to being chosen for strength requirements, should also be selected for compatiblity with the material to be joined to avoid galvanic corrosion caused by coupling dissimilar metals.

Plastic Perma-Rivet

Plastic Perma-Rivets are the same precision-molded all nylon rivets used in todays automobiles for both original equipment and replacement parts. Plastic rivets are ideal for use in conductive and corrosive applications. Our plastic Perma-Rivets fasten plastic to plastic, plastic to metal, and plastic to fiberglass. As they set, three “legs” form to securely lock the components in place and prevent pullout, leaving an attractive finished appearance.

  • Precision-molded, all-nylon.
  • Secure lock prevents pull-out.
  • Fastens plastic to plastic, plastic to metal or plastic to fiberglass.
