which aluminum sheet can be usde for oil tankers


Alloy oil tanks lead the light-weight trend of the tanker industry and successfully subvert the design concept of traditional carbon steel tankers. At the same time, aluminum alloy tankers are expanding in the market and will play an increasingly important role in road transportation.
Aluminum alloys commonly used in aluminum alloy semi-trailer trucks are 5083 aluminum plate, 5454 aluminum plate and 5182 aluminum plate. Here, Henan MingtaiAluminum will introduce the performance of the three.

5083 alloy aluminum plate is the most widely used aluminium plate for oil tanker. The main element is magnesium, which has good welding performance, corrosion resistance and processing performance, medium strength, and is used to manufacture liquid tankers such as oil tankers.

5182 tanker aluminum plate is the latest high-magnesium alloy tanker plate that was born specifically for the European road dangerous goods transport agreement in recent years. Its tensile strength and elongation value are relatively high, using 5182 aluminum alloy welding, the mechanical properties of the weld can reach the minimum value specified for the base metal. The excellent quality of 5182 alloy plate improves the safety of aluminum alloy tankers. 5454 aluminum plate for tanker is suitable for aluminum-magnesium alloy tank trucks used under high temperature conditions, and has strong corrosion resistance.

Henan Mingtai Aluminum mainly produces 5083 5182 and 5454 aluminium sheet plate for oil tanker raw materials for making tankers. The commonly used width of ultra-wide aluminum plate for tank truck on the market is 2.2 meters, and the thickness is 5mm, 6mm, 7mm, 8mm. The 5000 series ultra-wide sheet produced by the six-roll cold rolling mill introduced by Henan MingtaiAluminum, the maximum width can reach 2600mm, stable performance, meet the requirements of tanker aluminum plate.
