English term or phrase: Self-plugging rivet
Me encuentro con este término en el siguiente contexto:

Self-plugging (mechanical lock) rivets are similar to self-plugging (friction lock) rivets, except for the manner in which the stem is retained in the rivet sleeve. This type of rivet has a positive mechanical locking collar to resist vibrations that cause the friction lock rivets to loosen and possibly fall out. Also, the mechanical locking type rivet stem breaks off flush with the head and usually does not require further stem trimming when properly installed. Self-plugging (mechanical lock) rivets display all the strength characteristics of solid shank rivets and in most cases can be substituted rivet for rivet.

Aguardo su ayuda.

Desde ya muchas gracias.

Notes to answerer
Asker: ¿Podría ser "remache ciego"? Al comparar imágenes, "remache ciego" y "self-plugging rivet" parecen ser lo mismo.

Asker: Lo encontré en el Diccionario politécnico de las lenguas española e inglesa de Federico Beigbeder Atienza como "remache ciego autocerrable" ;)
