when to use rivets and when to use self tappers

I heard that pop rivets hold stronger than screws… Also, some say that you should use ‘monel’, not plain SS rivets to reduce corrosion (but still, dip in Duralac before installing)… I think length of the rivet is not problematic as long as you don’t undersize severely…

Hopefully someone more experienced will comment.

Good luck.
