There are many types of aluminum plate UK market. There are 1-7 series according to aluminum alloy. According to thickness, it can be divided into aluminum plate and aluminum sheet. According to use, it can be divided into aluminum plate for mold
, aluminum plate for automobile, aluminum plate for tanker truck, marine aluminum plate and so on.
Characteristics of aluminum plate UK market
Regarding the characteristics of aluminum plate UK, we can explain them one by one by alloy.
1. The 1 series and 3 series aluminum plate uk are relatively simple to produce. They have the same characteristics as low density, can be strengthened, corrosion resistant, and easy to process. The corrosion resistance and strength of the 3 series are higher than the 1 series.
2. The 5 series aluminum plate belongs to the more commonly used alloy aluminum series. The main element is magnesium, and the magnesium content is between 3-5%. Also called aluminum magnesium alloy. The main features are low density, high tensile strength and high elongation. The weight of aluminum-magnesium alloy is lower than other series under the same area.
3. 6 series aluminum plate has medium strength, good plasticity and excellent corrosion resistance. In particular, it has no tendency to stress corrosion cracking, has excellent weldability, good corrosion resistance and cold workability, and is a promising alloy with a wide range of applications.
4. 7 series aluminum plate alloy elements are mainly zinc, but sometimes small amounts of magnesium and copper are added. It is a super-hard aluminum alloy, which is close to the hardness of steel. The extrusion speed is slower than 6 series alloys, and the welding performance is good. 7005 and 7075 are the highest grades in the 7 series and can be heat treated to strengthen them.
Aluminum plate UK application
Series 1 and 3 are commonly used in chemical equipment, signs, building decoration materials, hardware cooking utensils, etc .;
5 series aluminum plate is commonly used in aviation and shipbuilding, and are widely used in conventional industries;
6 series aluminum plate is often used in molds, various parts (aircraft, marine, electronics and hardware)
The 7 series aluminum plate is often used in aviation (bearing components of aircraft, landing gear), rockets, propellers, aviation spacecraft, etc., and some high-end electronic products.
