Nutserts are threaded inserts that can used in thin sheet materials such as sheet metal or composites down to 0.5mm. In fact a Nutsert is Avdel’s propriety name for a Rivet Nut or Rivnut. Rivnuts can be installed in sheetmetal and composite material from one side to create a permanent and reusable thread where using a conventional nut might not be practical. Check out our range of Rivnuts here.
Rivnuts are used in a wide variety of applications. First of all, nusterts are access is only needed from one side, this speeds up assembly. Secondly, they can be installed in pre coated surfaces with no damage. Particularly, Low Profile head allows near flush fit to application and clamps two or more sheets of material together, within the grip range. Consequently, Large Flange head provides a load bearing surface and reinforces the hole to prevent push-out. In this case nutserts can be used as a spacer and can be supplied with an under-head seal. Closed end prevents the ingress of dirt and fluids into thread and electrical circuits. Can be used with hand tools, pneumatic tools and cordless nutsert tools to suit a wide range of assembly methods
