Aluminum plate is a very common form of metal products. Due to different applications, the thickness of the aluminum plate used is also different. Generally, extremely thin thin sheets are considered aluminum foil, and specifications ranging from 0.008 inch to less than 1/4 inch are considered aluminum sheets. Pieces thicker than 6 mm (1/4 inch) are considered aluminum plates. There is not only one type of aluminum plate represented by 1/4 aluminum plate, but a very wide range. Different applications correspond to different alloy series and different specifications (thickness * width * length).
Pure 1/4 aluminum plate has low performance and strength, and its use is limited. However, by adding a small amount of one or several alloying elements, such as magnesium, silicon, manganese, copper, zinc, iron, chromium, titanium, etc., aluminum alloys with different properties can be obtained. Through cold working and heat treatment, the aluminum alloy can be further strengthened and hardened, accompanied by an increase in tensile strength.
Among pure aluminum alloys, 1050, 1060, 1100, etc. are often used. As an aluminum alloy series with high aluminum purity, it has high chemical stability and weather resistance. It also has sufficient ductility for deep drawing and welding. Of course, pure aluminum also has shortcomings, its strength is low. Among all aluminum, Al 1100 has the highest thermal conductivity and is also known for its high electrical conductivity. Pure aluminum can be used in industry, wires; it can also be used in interior decoration, as well as some ornaments.
Among the advantages of 5052 aluminum sheet include good weldability, very good corrosion resistance and high fatigue strength. Because there are so many advantages, you will see the application of 5052 aluminum plate in a variety of applications. High corrosion resistance makes 5052 aluminum plates often used in marine environments; due to their high fatigue strength, they are used in buildings subject to high vibrations, these are only some of their applications. Its advantages don't stop there. As the most commonly used non-heat-treated alloy, it has overall versatility, not to mention excellent value.
Compared with 5052 aluminum plate, 6061 aluminum plate is the most versatile heat treatment alloy, and it is really practical. It has a wide range of mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. 6061 aluminum is widely used in various industries, precision instruments, mold aluminum plates, automotive industries and so on. If it is used as a building decoration material, processing procedures such as anodizing and coloring, painting and enamelling are usually added. So far, 6061's production technology has reached a mature level. The common state of 6061 aluminum plate is 6061-t6 aluminum plate, 6061-t651 aluminum plate, and 6061-t4 aluminum plate.
