Comparison of 5000 Series /6000 Series /7000 Series Aluminum Plate


5000 Series Aluminum Sheet: 5000 series aluminum sheet belongs to the more commonly used alloy aluminum sheet series, the main element is magnesium, the magnesium content is between 3-5%. Also known as aluminum magnesium alloy. The main characteristics are low density, high tensile strength and high elongation. The weight of aluminum magnesium alloy under the same area is lower than that of other series.

Often used in aviation, such as aircraft fuel tanks. It is also widely used in conventional industry. The processing technology is continuous casting and rolling, which belongs to the hot rolled aluminum sheet series, so it can do oxidation deep processing. In our 5000 series aluminum sheet belongs to one of the more mature aluminum sheet series.

6000 Series Aluminum Sheet: 6000 series represents 6061 mainly contains magnesium and silicon two elements, so concentrated the advantages of 4000 series and 5000 series 6061 is a cold treatment aluminum forging products, suitable for corrosion resistance, oxidation requirements of the application. Good usability, excellent interface characteristics, easy coating, good processing. Can be used in low pressure weapons and aircraft joints. General characteristics of 6061: excellent interface characteristics, easy coating, high strength, good usability, strong corrosion resistance.

Typical uses of 6061 aluminum: aircraft parts, camera parts, couplers, Marine fittings and hardware, electronic fittings and joints, decorative or various hardware, hinge heads, magnetic heads, brake pistons, hydraulic pistons, electrical fittings, valves and valve parts.

7000 Series Aluminum Sheet: 7000 series represents 7075 mainly containing zinc. Also belongs to aviation series, is aluminum magnesium zinc copper alloy, heat treatment alloy, belongs to super hard aluminum alloy, has good wear resistance.7075 aluminum sheet is stress-removed, will not be deformed and warped after processing. All the ultra-large and ultra-thick 7075 aluminum sheets are detected by ultrasonic wave to ensure that there is no sand hole and impurities. The high thermal conductivity of 7075 aluminum sheets can shorten the molding time and improve the working efficiency. 7075 is a high hardness, high strength aluminum alloy, often used in the manufacture of aircraft structure and futures. It requires high strength, corrosion resistance of high stress structural parts, mold manufacturing. Relying on import basically, our production craft still needs to be improved. (Our company once had a foreign company proposed that the domestic 7075 aluminum sheet annealing is not uniform, the surface and internal hardness of aluminum sheet is inconsistent problem.
