Brainard Swell Neck Rivets
For more effective fastening, higher strength, lower costs
When the BSN rivet is cold-squeezed (a process three times faster than driving heated rivets), it completely fills the rivet hole. No other fastener fills a hole as completely as this BSN rivet, leaving no margin for shear movement and possible eventual tear out. You get high tensile strength without destroying the “work hardness” and there are no stress concentrations. Squeezing BSN cold rivets into place also means quiet operation. Since cold-riveting dies last longer, your die costs and equipment maintenance are reduced.
