Galvanic corrosion should always be a concern when designing or riveting applications together. Galvanic corrosion problems should be solved by designing to avoid these problems in the first place. One of the basic solutions is to avoid dissimilar materials or metals being used to fasten or rivet the application together. If you are fastening copper sheets or panels to an aluminum or steel frame, then use copper blind rivets to fasten the copper sheets to the aluminum or steel frame. By keeping the basic materials similar, copper, at the very least you are avoiding introducing more dissimilar metals, which can lead to premature or galvanic corrosion. By using any of our copper blind rivets, in this case our CBS44 copper blind rivets you can accomplish the goal of copper components on the finish or viewable side of your application. In addition to keeping with the similar base metals, by introducing coatings to the components, in this case your aluminum or steel frame. You are enhancing the resistance to galvanic corrosion due to the paint acting as an insulator between what ever it’s fastening. If you aluminum panels or sheets are also coated with a non-metallic paint it can act as an additional insulator layer. Copper is naturally corrosion resistant and can remain bright if buffed and sealed.
