Aluminum Profile Material Classification And Use

September 13,2018.

According to the different content of alloy elements, aluminum profile can be divided into eight series: 1000 series, 2000 series, 3000 series, 4000 series, 5000 series, 6000 series, 7000 series, 8000 series.

1000 series aluminum profile:

1050, 1060, 1100 series are commonly used in 1000 series, which aluminum content can reach above 99.00%. Since it does not contain other metal elements, the production process is simple and the price is cheap. The majority of current market is 1050 and 1060 series. The aluminum profile of series 1000 is determined according to the last two number. For example, the last two number of 1050 series  are 50, according to the principle of international brand naming, the aluminum content must be above 99.5%. China's aluminum alloy technical standard (gB/ t3880-2006) also clearly stipulated that the content of 1050 aluminum can reach 99.5%. The same reason is that the content of 1060 series aluminum profile must reach more than 99.6%.

2000 series aluminum profile:

2A16 (LY16), 2A06 (LY6) series are commonly used in 2000 series. 2000 series aluminum profiles are characterized by good hardness, among which, the content of copper element is higher, about 3-5%. The 2000 series aluminum profile belongs to the aviation aluminum material, which is not commonly used in the industry. At present, there are few manufacturers of 2000 series aluminum profile in China, because the quality is not comparable with that of foreign countries. Currently imported aluminum profile is mainly supplied by Korean and German manufacturers. With the development of China's aerospace industry, the production technology of 2000 series aluminum profile will be further improved.

3000 series aluminum profile:

3003, 3004 and 3A21 are commonly used in 3000 series. This series also known as anti-rust aluminum profile. 3000 series aluminum profiles production technology is relatively excellent in China. 3000 series aluminum profiles are mainly composed of manganese, which contains 1.0-1.5%. 3000 series is with good rust - proof function . Conventional application in the humid environment such as air conditioning, refrigerator, car bottom, but the price is higher than 1000 series.

4000 series aluminum profile:

4A01 is commonly used in 4000 series. The 4000 series aluminum profile belongs to the series with high silicon content. The silicon content between 4.5-6.0% belongs to building materials, mechanical parts, forging materials, welding materials; Its advantages are low melting point, good corrosion resistance and with heat and wear resistance.


5000 series aluminum profile:

5052, 5005, 5083, 5A05 series are commonly used in 5000 series. The main element of the 5000 series aluminum profile is magnesium, which contains 3-5%. 5000 series also known as aluminum magnesium alloy. Its main features are low density, high tensile strength and high elongation. Aluminum and magnesium alloys weigh less than other series under the same volume. Therefore, it is often used in aviation, such as aircraft fuel tanks. It is also widely used in conventional industries. The processing technology is continuous casting and continuous rolling, which belongs to hot rolled aluminum profile. In China 5000 series of aluminum profile is one of the mature series.

6000 series aluminum profile:

6063, 6061 series are commonly used in 6000 series. It mainly contains magnesium and silicon, it not only focuses on the advantages of 4000 series, but 5000 series. Its main features are good usability, excellent interface features, easy coating and good processing. So it is widely used in construction to make the aluminum window & door.


7000 series aluminum profile:

7075 is commonly used in 7000 series. It mostly contains zinc, which belongs to aviation series. Besides, 7000 series is copper zinc aluminum magnesium alloy, can be heat treatment, belongs to hard aluminum alloy, with good wear resistance. 7075 aluminum profile is by eliminating stress, not deformation, warping after processing. All the 7000 series aluminum profile have under ultrasonic detection, which can guarantee without sand holes, impurities. 7075 aluminum profile is of high thermal conductivity, can shorten the molding time, improve work efficiency. The main characteristic is that the hardness.

8000 series aluminum profile:

The more commonly used is 8011 aluminum profile, belonging to other series. It is mainly used for making bottle caps and radiators. Most of the applications are aluminum foil. It is not very common series in business.
