Alloy 20 rivets are fasteners made from Alloy 20, a nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloy with excellent resistance to corrosion and pitting. Alloy 20 rivets are used in various industries such as chemical processing, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, food processing, and more for their exceptional corrosion resistance and durability. They are used to fasten two pieces of material together in applications requiring high strength and corrosion resistance.
Alloy 20 is a type of stainless steel that contains nickel, chromium, molybdenum, and copper. This combination makes it particularly resistant to corrosion from sulfuric and phosphoric acid acids. It also has excellent weldability and machinability properties. The most common application for alloy 20 is manufacturing chemical process equipment.
Types of Alloy 20 Rivets
There are two main types of Carpenter Alloy 20 Rivets, solid rivets, and blind rivets. Solid rivets are made with one piece of heated metal until it becomes soft enough to be inserted into the hole where it will be installed. Blind rivets are made with two pieces of metal, a mandrel inserted into the head of the rivet, which expands when pressure is applied to hold it securely in place.
Benefits of Alloy 20 Rivets
Corrosion Resistance: Alloy 20 is highly resistant to corrosion, making it an excellent choice for use in harsh environments that require resistance to corrosive agents such as acids, alkalis, and salts. This makes Alloy 20 rivets ideal for use in chemical processing plants, oil and gas facilities, and other industries where corrosion is a concern.
High Strength: Alloy 20 rivets offer increased strength and durability, making them suitable for heavy-duty applications.
Easy to Install: Alloy 20 rivets are easy to install & can be quickly fastened to the material using a rivet gun or other appropriate tool.
Long Service Life: Alloy 20 rivets have a long service life & can withstand harsh conditions, making them a cost-effective solution for many industrial applications.
Versatile: Alloy 20 rivets are universal & can be used in various applications, including construction, automotive, aerospace, and marine industries.
Uses for Alloy 20 Rivets
Alloy 20 rivets have many uses in various industries, including automotive manufacturing, construction projects, marine applications, chemical processing plants, industrial machinery components, and medical devices. They can secure parts together without compromising strength or reliability while protecting against harsh environments or chemicals due to their corrosion resistance qualities.
