Advantages of aluminum alloy

News Details
Aluminum alloys are classified into different categories depending on the alloy content of the aluminum sheets, and can be classified into cold rolling and hot rolling depending on the processing technology.
According to the thickness, it can be divided into thin plate and medium plate.
Aluminum alloy is divided into two series: processing aluminum alloy and casting aluminum alloy
Processing aluminum alloy has 1-7 series grades, such as 1100, 2219, 3003, etc.
According to the division of China, cast aluminum alloys are divided into four categories, as follows:
Aluminum silicon series: such as ZL102, ZL104, etc.
Aluminum copper series: such as ZL201, ZL205, etc., starting with 2
Aluminum-magnesium series: such as ZL301, ZL303, etc.
Aluminum zinc series: such as ZL401, ZL402, etc., starting with 2
ZL refers to the abbreviation of Chinese Pinyin for cast aluminum alloy.
Aluminum alloys have their own unique characteristics compared to metal materials:
1. It is easy to process and add certain alloying elements, and can obtain cast aluminum alloy with good casting performance or deformed aluminum alloy with good plasticity.
2, good electrical and thermal conductivity, aluminum's electrical and thermal conductivity is second only to silver, copper and gold.
3, the density is small, the density of aluminum and aluminum alloy is close to 2.7g /, about 1/3 of iron or copper.
4, high strength aluminum and aluminum alloy high strength, after a certain degree of cold processing can strengthen the strength of the matrix, some grades of aluminum alloy can also be strengthened by heat treatment.
5, the corrosion resistance of the aluminum surface is easy to naturally produce a dense and strong AL2O3 protective film, which can protect the substrate from corrosion. By artificial anodizing and coloring, a cast aluminum alloy with good casting properties or a deformed aluminum alloy with good plasticity can be obtained.
