Aluminum sheet is a metal material with aluminum as its main component. Due to the relatively small density of aluminum, aluminum panels are lighter in volume and weight than other metal materials, reducing transportation and operating costs. It has the characteristics of high strength and hardness, strong corrosion resistance, good plasticity, easy processing, and good electrical conductivity. Widely used in construction, automobile, shipbuilding, aerospace and other fields. In this blog post, we will follow the aluminum coil manufacturers to understand the types and application of aluminum sheet common series:

1000 series

The representative 1000 series aluminum sheet is also called pure aluminum plate. Among all series, the 1000 series has the highest aluminum content. The purity can reach over 99.00%. Since it does not contain other technical elements, the production process is relatively simple and the price is relatively cheap. Common.

2000 series

Series 2 aluminum sheet refers to a type of aluminum alloy, which is characterized by high copper content, about 3-5%. It has good weldability, processability and corrosion resistance. Common 2 series aluminum plates include 2A11, 2A12, etc. It is often used in the manufacturing of aircraft, automobiles, ships and other fields.

3000 series

Series 3 aluminum sheet is also called rust-proof aluminum and has good plasticity and corrosion resistance. The main component of 3 series aluminum plate is aluminum and a small amount of magnesium, which is a series with better anti-rust function. In the construction field, 3 series aluminum panels can be used to make curtain walls, doors, windows, roofs, etc. In addition, it can also be used to manufacture parts for automobiles, ships, aircraft and other mechanical equipment, and the price is higher than that of the 1000 series.

4000 series

Aluminum sheets represented by the 4A01 4000 series belong to the series with higher silicon content. Usually the silicon content is between 4.5-6.0%. Belongs to building materials, mechanical parts, forging materials, and welding materials; has low melting point and good corrosion resistance. Product Description: It has the characteristics of heat resistance and wear resistance.

5000 series

Represents 5754, 5005, 5083, 5A05 series. The 5000 series aluminum plate belongs to the more commonly used alloy aluminum plate series. The main element is magnesium, and the magnesium content is between 3-5%. Also known as aluminum-magnesium alloy. The main features are low density, high tensile strength and high elongation. In the same area, the weight of aluminum-magnesium alloy is lower than other series. Therefore, it is often used in the aviation field, such as aircraft fuel tanks.

6000 series

This means that 6061 mainly contains magnesium and silicon, so it combines the advantages of the 4000 series and the 5000 series. 6061 is a cold worked aluminum forged product suitable for applications requiring high corrosion and oxidation resistance. Good processability, excellent interface properties, easy coating, and good processing performance. Can be used in low voltage weapons and aircraft connectors.

7000 Series

7 Series aluminium sheet is a super-hard aluminium alloy. The main chemical elements are aluminum and zinc, but it also contains a small amount of magnesium, copper and other elements. It has good comprehensive performance and processing performance. Its representative product is 7075 aluminium sheet, which belongs to the aerospace series of aluminum. It can be heat-treated and is widely used in aviation, automobile, ship, building decoration and other decorative fields, such as curtain wall, door, window and roof.

8000 series

More commonly used are 8079 and 8201, which belong to other series. 8000 series is a kind of aluminium sheet. Its main function is to make bottle caps and it is also used for radiators. Most of them are aluminium foils, which are less commonly used.

Quanshuo Metal Materials is a manufacturer that has passed ISO9001:2015, TUV, SGS, and CE certification. It mainly produces aluminum product, etc., with an annual output of 300,000 tons. Looking forward to your inquiry.
