In daily life, we often use aluminum sheet metal material, which is easy to process, recyclable, good corrosion resistance, and good durability. How many aluminum sheet metal material grades are there? What are the advantages of aluminum sheet metal? Let us take these questions and let’s understand the relevant content together!
There are several aluminum sheet metal material grades:
The aluminum plate material can be divided into 7000 types, generally sorted by price from low to high, namely: pure aluminum headed by number 1000, copper-aluminum alloy headed by number 2000, manganese-aluminum alloy headed by number 3000, silicon-aluminum alloy headed by number 4000 , the number 5000 is the first magnesium alloy, the number 6000 is the first magnesium silicon aluminum alloy, and the number 7000 is the first zinc aluminum alloy.
What are the advantages of aluminum sheet:
- Low density
The density of aluminum and aluminum alloy is close to 2.7g/cm³, which is about 1/3 of that of iron and copper. Due to the high strength of aluminum and aluminum alloys, they can enhance the strength of the matrix under a certain degree of cold working, and some types of aluminum alloys can also be strengthened by heat treatment.
- Good electrical and thermal conductivity
Not only does it conduct heat well, but it also conducts electricity very well, second only to metals such as gold, silver, and copper.
- Uniform coating and various colors
Its surface is relatively glossy, the coating is uniform, the color is rich, and the selection space is large.
- Easy to process
It is easy to process, and if some alloying elements are added in the process, it can also get good casting performance. It can be processed into complex geometric shapes such as plane, arc and sphere, and it can be integrally formed in the factory without cutting during production, and can be directly reprocessed.
- High recycling value
Although the aluminum sheet is light in volume, it has high tensile strength, good extensibility and high recycling value.
- Good corrosion resistance
Since its surface has a tight protective film, its substrate can be effectively protected from external erosion.
This is the end of the above introduction of several aluminum sheet metal material grades. I hope it can give you some reference. For more related content, please pay attention to our information.
