The thin aluminum sheet is a wide and thin sheet extending from an aluminum plate with a thickness of 0.2-6.0 mm. The aluminum grades of the aluminum sheet range from 1000 series to 8000 series. 5052, 5083, 5086, 6061 and 7075. When buying thin aluminum sheets, we recommend that you consider performance.
Hardness: Many customers are very concerned when purchasing thin 4x8 aluminum sheet, and the hardness is directly related to the chemical composition of the aluminum alloy. Second, the difference in temperament also has a greater impact. From the perspective of the higher hardness that can be achieved, the 7000 series, 2000 series, 4000 series, 6000 series, 5000 series, 3000 series, and 1000 series decrease in turn.
Strength: Strength is an important factor that must be considered when designing a product. When aluminum plate alloys are used as components, appropriate aluminum alloys should be selected according to the pressure they are subjected to. The strength of pure aluminum is lower, the degree of heat treatment of aluminum alloys of 2000 series and 7000 series is higher, and the hardness and strength have a certain decreasing relationship.
Corrosion Resistance: Corrosion resistance includes chemical resistance and stress corrosion resistance. In general, the 1000 series of pure aluminum has better corrosion resistance, the 5000 series performs better, the 3000 series and 6000 series are second, and the 2000 series and 7000 series are poor. The selection principle of corrosion resistance should be determined according to its application. For high-strength alloys used in corrosive environments, various anti-corrosion composite materials must be used.Decorative properties: When 1/8 aluminum sheet metal is used for decoration or some specific occasions, its surface needs to be anodized and painted to obtain the corresponding color and surface structure. It's time to consider its decoration. Generally speaking, materials with better corrosion resistance have excellent anodizing properties, surface treatment properties, and coating properties.
