It is important that the mechanical features data are used only as general rule, as many other factors could influence the rivet performances.


 

Capacity test of pin retention:

 

pin retention

This test is made as defined in the corresponding specification of each rivet type.
The test is carried out in compliance with ISO 14589:2003, to check that the
remaining part of the pin into the rivet cannot be pushed out by the testing load.

Resistance test to pin pushout:

 

The strength for the pin pushout must be higher than 10 N when subject to test
in compliance with ISO 14589:2003 specification.
