Triangle Fastener Corporation [] announces the publication of pullout and pullover test data for blind rivets and is the only known published data that is available in the metal cladding industry. 

The blind rivet tests were conducted as a direct result of requests by the design and engineering community who use rivet pullout and pullover strength when designing various steel or aluminum panel systems. Some blind rivet connections may experience tensile loading, which can lead to pullout, pullover, or tensile failure of the rivet.

The pullout and pullover tests were conducted at an independent laboratory and includes ultimate load values and the mode of failure. Test results can be found on the Triangle Fastener Corporation website and a copy of the independent test report is available by contacting the TFC Tech Center located in Cleveland Ohio.
