A Sealed Blind Rivet has a dome head that is completely closed, making it ideal for use in applications where air or water tightness is a requirement. Sealed Pop Rivets come in a choice of steel, stainless steel and aluminium; they can sometimes be referred to as Sealed Pop Rivets or Self-Sealing Pop Rivets.
Blind Rivets are so-called because they can be used to fasten two items together without the operator needing to have access to the rear surface (the blind side) of the items being joined.
The rivet has a stem called a mandrel. The mandrel is inserted into a rivet gun and the protruding body of the rivet is then pushed into the hole and through the materials that are being fastened. The mandrel is then pulled back, forcing the sides of the rivet to expand outwards. When the rivet can expand no further the mandrel snaps off, leaving a neat and tidy finish on both surfaces.
