Steel Rivets & Fasteners
Valley Fastener Group manufactures high-quality steel rivets and fasteners for a variety of applications. Steel is one of the most common fastener materials, due to its great formability and durability. Many grades of steel material are available for your selection to ensure that your fastened joint will function as expected. These parts come in a variety of coating options.
Carbon Steel Rivets & Fasteners
Low carbon steels are most often selected for rivet applications that primarily require good part formability so they can clinch over or upset well in your application.
When higher carbon steels are specified for rivets and fasteners, the strength and hardness of the material increases and the formability of the material decreases. Higher carbon steel parts work-harden more when they are produced and work harden again as they are clinched or upset in your application.
The steel raw material used to produce our rivets and fasteners have excellent formability. Screws and other cold formed special threaded fasteners typically are specified using higher carbon steels than the most common rivet materials. Long-lasting strength is a primary trait of carbon steel parts.
