From commercial airliners to performance military jets, a majority of aircraft are manufactured from aluminum. This is due to the high strength-to-weight ratio that aluminum provides, allowing reliable assemblies that excel in heavier-than-air flight. While aluminum is highly beneficial for the construction of aircraft, such materials limit the fastener types that may be used to secure parts together based on their material. When two or more dissimilar metals are pressed together with pressure, corrosion may occur and result in irreparable damages. Despite such issues, avoiding fastener and surface corrosion simply requires choosing fastener materials that can accommodate aluminum structures.
