Aluminum and its alloys have many advanced properties comparing with other metals.
- Light weight. The weight of aluminum is about one-third comparing with steel. There are mainly 8 aluminium alloy series, they all have the lightweight characteristic of aluminum metal. Therefore, cast aluminum plate is much more easy to carry and transport;
- Great strength. As a kind of aluminum alloy products, aluminium alloy plate is a versatile material. The greater aluminium alloy strength and the lighter weight advantage made it widely used in vehicles and ships;
- Resistance to corrosion. Another reason for the wide use of aluminum plate material in ship and marine industry is the excellent resistance to corrosion. In addition, since aluminum sheet alloys can bear wetter environment, cast aluminum plate is also the best material of air conditioner;
- Durable. Another practical property of aluminum alloy sheet is durablity. In the statistic data of 2014, about 5% of aluminum global use is consumers durable;
