Pop riveting is a technique that joins pieces of metal. It may also be used to join plastic. The rivet consists of two parts:
- The pin
- The rivet
Pop rivet pliers are used to pull the pin through the rivet. In the process, the rivet becomes slightly deformed so that it joins the metal or plastic pieces. Pop riveting is most often used when the metal or plastic is fairly thin and where you don’t need a particuarly string joint. It is perfect for joining materials such as aluminium or thin sheet plastic. A rivet gun pops the mandril end off of the pop rivet and joins the two objects together.
