Alligator® Plastic Rivet Fastening System

The Alligator® Plastic Rivet Fastening System produces a non-scratching, non-magnetic, quiet mechanically-applied splice that can be easily dismantled for installation, cleaning, and sanitation.

Why Plastic Rivet?

  • Mechanical fastener rating from 40 to 65 PIW (7 to 11 kN/m)
  • Belts from 1/32” to 1/8” (0.8 mm to 3.2 mm)
  • Pulley diameters from 1.5” to 3” (38 mm to 75 mm)
  • Beveled leading edges allow for smooth interface with conveyor components
  • Produces a robust and abrasion-resistant splice
  • UV-resistant black plastic for outdoor applications
  • FDA-accepted white plastic
  • Blue plastic for use with blue colored belting used in the food industry
  • One-piece, easy-to-clean design with rivets molded into the top plate
  • Spin-set installation through heat and friction provides a long-lasting splice.

Installation Method

  • Portable tooling
  • Machine application

How Alligator® Plastic Rivet Fasteners Work 

alligator PlasticThe Alligator® Plastic Rivet Fasteners were developed to bring the many advantages of mechanical belt fasteners to those applications where metal belt fasteners could not be used. They are external, cover-mounted fasteners employing a one-piece, integrated design with rivets molded into the top plates of the fasteners.

These rivets pass through pre-punched holes and are formed over through our Spin-Set technology, compressing the fastener plates and finishing the splice.
