Abstract

Invented and manufactured by the French company AHG (Ateliers de la Haute‐Garonne), the MATT rivet has been specially formulated to prolong the life of riveting in thin sheet metals. The original design allows controlled expansion of the head and shank, and most importantly, the head expands into the countersink to ensure a precise interference fit which does not require additional sealants.
