POINTS TO CONSIDER WHILE CHOOSING AN ALUMINUM GRADE


Aluminium Sheet is the most widely used form of Aluminium Alloy. It is commonly used for light fabrications, enclosures, truck and trailer repairs, car body panels, machine building, and extensively in construction, aerospace and defense applications. Aluminium Alloy is lightweight and has a good strength to weight ratio. Aluminium Sheet can be cut using a jigsaw with the correct blade or very thin sheets that can be cut using a sharp blade or tin snips.

Heat Treating of the Aluminum
  • Alloy 2024 – Can be Heat Treated
  • Alloy 3003 – Does not respond to Heat Treatment
  • Alloy 5052 – Does not respond to Heat Treatment
  • Alloy 6061 – Can be Heat Treated
  • Alloy 6063 – Can be Heat Treated
  • Alloy 7075 – Can be Heat Treated
Is the Strength of the Aluminum the main factor?
  • Alloy 2024 – A high strength aluminum alloy
  • Alloy 3003 – Medium strength
  • Alloy 5052 – Medium to high strength alloy
  • Alloy 6061 – Medium to high strength alloy
  • Alloy 6063 – Medium strength
  • Alloy 7075 – A high strength aluminum alloy
Typical end-use applications of Aluminum Grades:
  • Alloy 2024 – Aerospace Applications
  • Alloy 3003 – Food & Chemical Equipment – General Fabrication
  • Alloy 5052 – Marine Applications – General Fabrication
  • Alloy 6061 – Structural Applications – General Fabrication
  • Alloy 6063 – Architectural Applications
  • Alloy 7075 – Aerospace Applications
