Blind Rivets - Structural


Mega-Grip Rivets
GESIPA’s Mega-Grip is a high strength multigrip structural blind rivet. The flush-break mechanically locked mandrel core improves weather resistance and provides higher shear strength. During setting the rivet body expands within the application material to provide complete hole-fill for tighter joints. Mega-Grips are offered in three head styles: Dome, Large Flange and Countersunk. Material choices include Aluminum and Steel.

G-Bulb Rivets
GESIPA’s G-Bulb is a high strength structural blind rivet. Designed for thinner material applications, the G-Bulb forms a large blind-side closing head, providing better material support and higher pull-through resistance. High shear strength is achieved by the locked mandrel core. Material choices include Steel and Stainless Steel.

Bulb-tite Rivets
GESIPA’s Bulb-tites are the original high-strength structural tri-folding blind rivets. The comprehensive Bulb-tite product line includes 10 unique series, offering a broad range of diameters, head styles and material choices.

Bulb-tite Shaveable Head Rivets
The Shaveable series of Bulb-tite rivets are designed for use in applications where solid "bucked" type rivets are commonly used such as truck/trailer body assembly or repair. The Shaveable Bulb-tite simplifies repairs made to solid riveted assemblies, as rivet replacement does not require access to the blind side of the application.


The Bulb-tite's large blindside footprint functions well in rivet holes that have become elongated or too large to allow use of a solid rivet. Simply install the Bulb-tite and finish the rivet head with an Olympic head-shaving tool. The shaved head profile perfectly matches the solid brazier head rivets used elsewhere in the assembly. Shaveable Bulb-tites are available in 5/32", 3/16" and 1/4" diameters and can be installed with most standard blind rivet tools. A special Bulb-tite tool nose tip is not required.


The installed rivet's mandrel is designed to break high, leaving an exposed mandrel plug extending above the set fastener's head. The remaining mandrel protrusion is snipped off using the RV57 mandrel trimming tool. Finally, the rivet head is shaved using the HS310 rivet head shaver, leaving a finished rivet head that matches solid rivets in appearance.


Blind Rivets - Non Structural


American Standard (IFI-114) Rivets
GESIPA’s American Standard (inch series) blind rivets are manufactured to IFI-114 specifications. They are available in Dome, Large Flange and Countersunk head styles. Material choices include: All-Aluminum, Aluminum Rivet w/ Steel Mandrel, All-Steel, Stainless Rivet w/ Steel Mandrel and All-Stainless. GESIPA also offers a complete range of Metric Standard blind rivets produced in our European facilities.

Back-Up Washers
Back-Up Washers art available for use with GESIPA's 1/8", 5/32" and 3/16" diameter rivets, for applications requiring a larger bearing surface on the blindside.

Extra Length Metric Standard (DIN7337/ISO159xx) Rivets
GESIPA manufactures a complete line of Extra Length metric blind rivets according to DIN7337 standards in 3 mm, 4 mm, 4.8 mm, 5 mm, 6 mm and 6.4 mm diameters. Material choices include Aluminum/Steel, Steel/Steel, as well as 304 and 316 Alloy Stainless Steel.

Plastic (Nylon) Rivets
Gesipa Plastic blind rivets join many types of plastics and other materials such as wood, metal, fiberglass, plexiglass, synthetic insulating materials, etc.

PolyGrip (Multi-grip) Rivets
GESIPA’s PolyGrip rivets feature a wide grip range enabling a single Polygrip to replace up to 3 lengths of standard blind rivets. The PolyGrip’s hole-filling rivet body expands within the application material for better joint integrity. The large blind-side closing head with locked mandrel core provides better support and improved sealing for weather resistance. Polygrips are available in three head styles. Material choices include Aluminum, Steel and Stainless Steel.

Dome Peel Rivets
GESIPA Dome Peel rivets split into four legs providing a large blind side bearing head for improved support in brittle, soft or ductile materials.

Tri-fold Rivets
GESIPA Tri-fold rivets form three folded legs that distribute the fastener's clamp-load over a larger blind side head formation. The larger blind side offers increased pull-through resistance in soft and ductile material applications. Tri-fold rivets are used in automotive applications such as plastic body panels, trim, and interior components.
