Weight considerations and the need for corrosion resistance make aluminum fasteners attractive for new automotive design. This paper reviews design considerations in using aluminum fasteners. Newly developed high-strength fastener alloys complimented by lightweight and the well known attributes of aluminum give the designer wide latitude in using aluminum for standard and special purpose fasteners.
