Countersunk Rivets

A “countersunk rivet” typically has a flat head and can have a tubular or solid shank rivet.  Among the raw materials used to produce these rivets is steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, and copper.  Rivet plating and coating options are selected by end user dependent on the application.

Countersunk head rivets are used to join work-piece materials together where the head of the assembled rivet will be flush with the top of the work piece.  Countersunk head rivets are also used to hold friction materials to brake shoes. Riveted work-pieces are most often joined together by impacting or compressing the end of the rivet with a crimping die (rivet anvil).

Countersunk head rivet angles should match closely the angle of the work piece hole so that the maximum amount of rivet head remains in contact with the work piece when the rivet is assembled. The length of the most countersunk head rivets are measured from the top of the head to the extreme end of the rivet shank. The tightness of the clinched joint is determined by the amount of force applied to the clinched end of the rivet and can easily be adjusted.
