MS20470 datasheet rivets


The MS20470 Rivet is the most common fastener used in the aircraft structuralassembly. The two initial letter in the part number identifies the standard, is military-Military Standard. The number 20470 identifies the geometry of the rivet, in this case: universal head. The head is like mushroom head.The identification part number presents one or two additional letters after the standard and geometry.

A military universal head solid rivet is a specific type of rivet used in military and aerospace applications. Rivets are mechanical fasteners that join two or more materials together by forming a permanent connection. They consist of a cylindrical shaft with a head on one end and a tail on the other.

The “universal head” refers to a specific rivet head design. The universal head has a flat top surface with a slightly rounded profile, providing a larger bearing surface when the rivet is installed. This design distributes the load more evenly, which can be beneficial for applications where strength and load-bearing capacity are critical, such as in military and aerospace structures.
