The difference between the use of stainless steel rivet […]

The difference between the use of stainless steel rivets and aluminum rivets is that the two materials are different, the performance is different, the hardness of stainless steel is much higher than that of aluminum, so the tensile strength of stainless steel is relatively large, and it is suitable for workpieces with high fastening strength.

On the other hand, the tensile and shear resistance of aluminum is relatively small, which is suitable for some civilian workpieces. However, it depends on the material of the riveted workpiece. If it is riveted on the aluminum plate, it is not suitable for stainless steel because stainless steel and aluminum will react chemically for a long time to accelerate corrosion.

Of course, the price of stainless steel is also more expensive than aluminum.
