Aluminium Screws, Fasteners and Fixings
There are a number of redeeming qualities that make aluminium useful as a fastener. Of course, you need to consider the conditions that said fastener would be in before deciding that you would like to use aluminium.
They are useful for when the application requires restrictions on the weight of the fastener, as aluminium is a relatively lightweight material. An example of this is inside the automotive industry, where the weight of the car will need to be monitored. There are metals lighter than aluminium – but it is far more cost-effective than many lighter options.
Aesthetically, aluminium is pleasing and even more so when polished – making it a strong choice for when aesthetics in fixings are important.
As well as this, aluminium is resistant to corrosion and is non-ferrous, meaning it’s also not magnetic – perfect for screws.
