1000 series aluminum alloy represents 1050, 1060 and 1100 series. The 1000 series contains the most aluminum among all series. Purity can reach over 99.00% . The price of 1000 series aluminum is relatively cheap and it is currently the most commonly used series in conventional industries.
The 2000 series aluminum alloys represent 2024, 2A16 (LY16), and 2A02 (LY6). The 2000 series aluminum plate is characterized by high hardness, among which the copper content is the highest, about 3-5%. 2000 series aluminum rods are aviation aluminum materials and are currently not commonly used in conventional industries.
3000 series aluminum alloys mainly represent 3003 and 3A21. 3000 series aluminum are mainly composed of manganese. The content is between 1.0-1.5, which is a series with better anti-rust function.
The 4000 series aluminum are represented by 4A01. The 4000 series aluminum plates belong to the series with higher silicon content. Usually the silicon content is between 4.5-6.0%. Belongs to construction materials, mechanical parts, forging materials, and welding materials; has low melting point and good corrosion resistance. Product description: It has the characteristics of heat resistance and wear resistance.
The 5000 series aluminum alloy represents the 5052, 5005, 5083, and 5A05 series. 5000 series aluminum rods belong to the more commonly used alloy aluminum plate series. The main element is magnesium, and the magnesium content is between 3-5%. It can also be called aluminum-magnesium alloy. The main features are low density, high tensile strength and high elongation. The weight of aluminum-magnesium alloy is lower than other series under the same area. It is also widely used in conventional industries.
The 6000 series aluminum alloy represents 6061, which mainly contains two elements: magnesium and silicon. 6061 is a cold-processed aluminum forged product suitable for applications requiring high corrosion resistance and oxidation resistance. Good workability, easy coating, good processability.
The 7000 series aluminum alloy represents 7075, which mainly contains zinc. It also belongs to the aviation series. It is an aluminum-magnesium-zinc-copper alloy. It is a heat-treatable alloy. It is a superhard aluminum alloy and has good wear resistance.
The most commonly used 8000 series aluminum alloy is 8011, which belongs to other series. Most of them are used in aluminum foil and are less commonly used in the production of aluminum rods.
