Aluminum Plate Properties and Applications
Aluminum is corrosion-resistant and almost maintenance-free. Compared with other metals, it has a comparable strength and weight ratio, and the weight is about 1/3 of that of iron, steel, copper or brass. The performance of the aluminum plate is excellent. Compared with other common metals, the electrical conductivity is equivalent to that of copper products.
It is non-toxic and can be used in food preparation equipment. It is non-flammable (will not catch fire) and reflective, suitable for lamps. Some end uses of all grades of aluminum include transportation, food packaging, and furniture. The purpose is to be the most important metal element in the aluminum crust and 8% of the major electrical weight.
Alro stocks several grades of aluminum plate:
2024 aluminum plate is the most widely used aerospace alloy. It has aerospace manufacturing strength and good compression resistance, good workability and structure. 2024 aluminum plate is very suitable for precision parts and accessories, including aircraft parts, computers and ordering.
