Rivet Backup Washers
Backing Washers for Extra Support on a Rivet Assembly
Rivet Backing Washers are for use with Pop (Blind) Rivets, particularly in Stainless Steel or other soft metals. Rivet Backing Washers, also known as Rivet Backup Washers, create a larger installed diameter which creates a larger surface area and prevents pull through by distributing force over a larger area than a standard blind rivet.
Backing Washers are available in 304 Stainless Steel and Aluminum. It is recommended that you do not mix materials when using a Rivet Backup Washer. For example, if you are using a Stainless Steel Pop Rivet, use a Stainless Steel Backing Washer. Mixing materials can create installation problems.
