According to the different metal elements contained in aluminum plate, aluminum plate can be roughly divided into 9 categories, that is, can be divided into 9 series, the following step by step about introduction.

1, 1000 series on behalf of 1050 1060 1070 1000 series aluminum plate is also known as pure aluminum plate, 1000 series in all series belongs to a series containing the most aluminum. The purity can reach above 99.00%.

2, 2000 series aluminum plate on behalf of 2A16(LY16)2A12(LY12) 2A06(LY6)2000 series aluminum plate is characterized by high hardness, including the highest content of copper element, about 3-5%. 2000 series aluminum plate belongs to aviation aluminum, which is seldom used in conventional industry.

3, 3000 series aluminum plate represents 3003, 3003, 3A21. It can also be called anti-rust aluminum plate in China 3000 series aluminum plate production process is more excellent. 3000 series aluminum plate is made of manganese as the main component. The content is between 1.0-1.5.

4, 4000 series aluminum plate represents 4A01 4000 series aluminum plate belongs to the series with high silicon content. Usually the silicon content is between 4.5-6.0%. Construction materials, mechanical parts, forging materials, welding materials; Low melting point, good corrosion resistance. Product description: With heat resistance, wear resistance characteristics

5,5000 series represents 5052.5005.5083.5A05 series. In our country 5000 series aluminum plate belongs to one of the more mature aluminum plate series.

6,6000 series represents 6061, which mainly contains magnesium and silicon, so it concentrates the advantages of 4000 series and 5000 series. 6061 is a cold processed aluminum forging product.

7, 7000 series represents 7075 mainly contains zinc. Also belongs to the aviation series, is aluminum magnesium zinc copper alloy, is a heat treatment alloy, often used in the manufacture of aircraft structure and futures. It requires high strength, strong corrosion resistance of high stress structural parts, mold manufacturing. Depend on import basically, our country’s production technology still needs to improve. (Our company once had a foreign company put forward that the annealing of domestic 7075 aluminum plate is not uniform, and the surface and internal hardness of aluminum plate are inconsistent)

8, 8000 series is more commonly used for 8011 belongs to other series. In my memory, the aluminum plate is mainly used to make bottle caps. It is also used in radiators. Most of the aluminum foil is used. Not very often.

9, 9000 series belongs to the spare series, science and technology is so developed, in order to cope with the emergence of aluminum plate containing other alloy elements, the International Aluminum plate belt Federation shows that 9000 series is the spare series, waiting for another new variety to appear to fill the gap of 9000 series.
