Warm Gas Rivets
Warm gas rivets is a thermal joining process for connecting parts of different or same materials. The rivet shank end, consisting of a thermoplastic plastic, is plastified by hot air. Subsequently, the forming of the rivet head with a cold stamp takes place.
Principle of a multiple warm gas rivet joint:
Warm gas heating up is very well suitable to plastic rivets due to the depth effect during the plasticizing.
