All applications behave differently; some variables are material type (aluminum is soft, steel is strong, stainless is strongest), plating, lubrications involved, installation quality, hole quality (too small, right on, too big, burrs, etc.), other forces/physics being applied to the application or rivet nut, etc. There are too many variables to publish data for all applications, so we have general performance data that most users find beneficial enough to not require specific testing on their exact application.
We have some general performance data available on our https://www.rivetnutusa.com/catalogs-mechanical-engineering-properties/ page.
For specific testing to your exact application, we need to perform it in our test lab using a sample of the parent material and the exact rivet nut.
