According to the ARCO® body-bound rivet the folding rivet forms a large upset head too. This
guarantees an equal distribution of forces, so that especially plastics and other soft or vulnerable materials resist against cracking or pullthrough.
Typically this rivet is used in all areas of industrial light weight constructions. As a result of the locked mandrel in the connection, the spread rivet is splash water resistant. VVG offers two different types – the standard split rivet and a high strength version with neoprene washer.
