Aluminum rivets are fastening components made from aluminum. They are commonly used in the assembly of structures and equipment that are also made from aluminum. As a result of this material’s notable strength-to-weight ratio, these components provide strength and integrity without the addition of too much weight. This makes them a widely used component in aerospace applications and other settings that require reliable structural integrity without the use of heavy components.
As a reliable aluminum rivet supplier, we can provide you with a wide variety of rivet types, including solid rivets, blind rivets, semi-tubular rivets, rivet nuts, threaded inserts and drive rivets. They are made from various alloys, including 2117, which is the most commonly used alloy in aerospace and structural settings. We also have rivets made from 1100F, 5056, and 6053 aluminum alloys, which are used in commercial and non-structural applications. In plated form, these aluminum alloys provide good corrosion resistance, as well as electrical and thermal conductivity.
Aluminum Rivets For Aerospace, Mil-Spec, Commercial, And Other Applications
Thanks to the reliability and unique properties of this material, aluminum rivets are used in some of the most demanding applications. Because of their lightweight strength, aerospace aluminum rivets help keep aircraft secure and serve to reduce the overall weight of the craft. Structural weight reduction in aerospace means that aircraft can achieve greater speeds and range, and reserve more weight for equipment and cargo. Lightweight components help contribute to such capabilities.
Mil-spec rivets are also vital in various military and defense applications. As they are resistant to corrosion, they can be used in many high-demand and harsh environments, including those subjected to extreme temperatures and moisture. Since aluminum can be plated and possesses a pleasing sheen, commercial aluminum rivets can be used in many structural and equipment applications. They also contribute to a pleasing esthetic, even when fasteners are visible.
