The advantages of flat aluminum sheet are obvious. The entire thickness is 0.2mm to 500mm. However, the material specifications are different, there are many types and many alloys. Mainly divided into flat aluminum sheet, alloy flat aluminum sheet, and aluminum sheet. You can choose the specific alloy according to your project. Pure aluminum sheet grade: (1050, 1060, 1070, 1100), alloy aluminum sheet grade: (3003, 5052, 5083, 5754, 6061, 6082, 7075).
One of the applications of flat aluminum sheet 3003 is for curtain walls.
Why are more and more building curtain walls using aluminum sheets, and why are glass curtain walls gradually being replaced by aluminum sheets? The main reason is economic benefits. Of course, there are other factors, such as energy saving and environmental protection, safety performance, waterproof performance and flexible and convenient construction. If you are worried about how to choose aluminum curtain wall, here is recommended 3003 aluminum sheet. Based on its performance, this alloy is more suitable for curtain wall applications.
6061 aluminum, O, T6, T651, are their common tempers. Among them, t6 temper has stable performance and high hardness, and is widely used in industry. Such as trucks, construction, ships, vehicles, furniture, machinery, molds, etc. However, it cannot be said that the temper of t6 is better than the temper of O. Different projects require different tempers. O tempered 6061 aluminum alloy is relatively soft and relatively low in hardness. But there are also suitable applications.
Many customers will ask, can flat aluminum sheet 6061 bend?
The aluminum sheet has high hardness, and if the bending angle is high, it is easy to crack, but there are certain differences in the bending degree of different aluminum alloys. For example, 6061 aluminum sheet, its hardness is too high, it must be annealed before bending.
In addition, the thickness of the aluminum sheet should not be too large, and the thick aluminum sheet is not easy to bend.
Earlier, marine grade sheet mainly used steel materials with obvious advantages, but the disadvantages were also obvious. It is easy to rust, and if the maintenance cost is high for long-term use, these are all problems. Therefore, later, aluminum materials appeared. The emergence and popularization of this new type of material is conducive to the development of marine engineering equipment and has long-term significance. This new type of material is similar in strength to steel, has good durability and beautiful appearance. The flat aluminum sheet marine grade aluminum sheet provided by Mingtai is light in weight, high in strength and corrosion resistant. Moreover, the maintenance cost is low and can be recycled.
There are 5000 series alloys and 6000 series alloys for marine grade aluminum sheets. If you are not sure, you can directly consult us. We can recommend suitable alloys for you and provide free samples. In addition, a very competitive quotation will be provided.
