Product Description:

Aluminium alloys with a wide range of properties are used in engineering structures. Alloy systems are classified by a number system (ANSI) or by names indicating their main alloying constituents (DIN and ISO).

The strength and durability of aluminium alloys vary widely, not only as a result of the components of the specific alloy, but also as a result of heat treatments and manufacturing processes. A lack of knowledge of these aspects has from time to time led to improperly designed structures and gained aluminium a bad reputation.

One important structural limitation of aluminium alloys is their fatigue strength. Unlike steels, aluminium alloys have no well-defined fatigue limit, meaning that fatigue failure eventually occurs, under even very small cyclic loadings. This implies that engineers must assess these loads and design for a fixed life rather than an infinite life.

Another important property of aluminium alloys is their sensitivity to heat. Workshop procedures involving heating are complicated by the fact that aluminium, unlike steel, melts without first glowing red. Forming operations where a blow torch is used therefore require some expertise, since no visual signs reveal how close the material is to melting. Aluminium alloys, like all structural alloys, also are subject to internal stresses following heating operations such as welding and casting. The problem with aluminium alloys in this regard is their low melting point, which make them more susceptible to distortions from thermally induced stress relief. Controlled stress relief can be done during manufacturing by heat-treating the parts in an oven, followed by gradual cooling—in effect annealing the stresses.

The low melting point of aluminium alloys has not precluded their use in rocketry; even for use in constructing combustion chambers where gases can reach 3500 K. The Agena upper stage engine used a regeneratively cooled aluminium design for some parts of the nozzle, including the thermally critical throat region.

Another alloy of some value is aluminium bronze (Cu-Al alloy).

Aluminium foil acts as a total barrier to light and oxygen (which cause fats to oxidise or become rancid), odours and flavours, moistness, and germs, it is used broadly in food and pharmaceutical packaging. The purpose of aluminium is to make long-life packs (aseptic processing|aseptic packaging) for drinks and dairy goods, which allows storing without refrigeration. Aluminium foil containers and trays are used to bake pies and to pack takeaway meals, ready snacks and long life pet foods.

Aluminium foil is widely sold into the consumer market, often in rolls of 500 mm (20 in) width and several metres in length.It is used for wrapping food in order to preserve it, for example, when storing leftover food in a refrigerator (where it serves the additional purpose of preventing odour exchange), when taking sandwiches on a journey, or when selling some kinds of take-away or fast food. Tex-Mex restaurants in the United States, for example, typically provide take-away burritos wrapped in aluminium foil.

Aluminium foils thicker than 25 μm (1 mil) are impermeable to oxygen and water. Foils thinner than this become slightly permeable due to minute pinholes caused by the production process.

Aluminium foil has a shiny side and a matte side. The shiny side is produced when the aluminium is rolled during the final pass. It is difficult to produce rollers with a gap fine enough to cope with the foil gauge, therefore, for the final pass, two sheets are rolled at the same time, doubling the thickness of the gauge at entry to the rollers. When the sheets are later separated, the inside surface is dull, and the outside surface is shiny. This difference in the finish has led to the perception that favouring a side has an effect when cooking. While many believe that the different properties keep heat out when wrapped with the shiny finish facing out, and keep heat in with the shiny finish facing inwards, the actual difference is imperceptible without instrumentation.The reflectivity of bright aluminium foil is 88% while dull embossed foil is about 80%.

Aluminium (or aluminum; see spelling differences) is a chemical element in the boron group with symbol Al and atomic number 13. It is a silvery white, soft, ductile metal. Aluminium is the third most abundant element (after oxygen and silicon), and the most abundant metal in the Earth's crust. It makes up about 8% by weight of the Earth's solid surface. Aluminium metal is so chemically reactive that native specimens are rare and limited to extreme reducing environments. Instead, it is found combined in over 270 different minerals.The chief ore of aluminium is bauxite.

Aluminium is remarkable for the metal's low density and for its ability to resist corrosion due to the phenomenon of passivation. Structural components made from aluminium and its alloys are vital to the aerospace industry and are important in other areas of transportation and structural materials. The most useful compounds of aluminium, at least on a weight basis, are the oxides and sulfates.

Despite its prevalence in the environment, no known form of life uses aluminium salts metabolically. In keeping with its pervasiveness, aluminium is well tolerated by plants and animals. Owing to their prevalence, potential beneficial (or otherwise) biological roles of aluminium compounds are of continuing interest.

The earliest citation given in the Oxford English Dictionary for any word used as a name for this element is alumium, which British chemist and inventor Humphry Davy employed in 1808 for the metal he was trying to isolate electrolytically from the mineral alumina. The citation is from the journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London: "Had I been so fortunate as to have obtained more certain evidences on this subject, and to have procured the metallic substances I was in search of, I should have proposed for them the names of silicium, alumium, zirconium, and glucium."

Davy settled on aluminum by the time he published his 1812 book Chemical Philosophy: "This substance appears to contain a peculiar metal, but as yet Aluminum has not been obtained in a perfectly free state, though alloys of it with other metalline substances have been procured sufficiently distinct to indicate the probable nature of alumina."[69] But the same year, an anonymous contributor to the Quarterly Review, a British political-literary journal, in a review of Davy's book, objected to aluminum and proposed the name aluminium, "for so we shall take the liberty of writing the word, in preference to aluminum, which has a less classical sound."

The -ium suffix conformed to the precedent set in other newly discovered elements of the time: potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium, and strontium (all of which Davy isolated himself). Nevertheless, -um spellings for elements were not unknown at the time, as for example platinum, known to Europeans since the 16th century, molybdenum, discovered in 1778, and tantalum, discovered in 1802. The -um suffix is consistent with the universal spelling alumina for the oxide (as opposed to aluminia), as lanthana is the oxide of lanthanum, and magnesia, ceria, and thoria are the oxides of magnesium, cerium, and thorium respectively.

The aluminum spelling is used in the Webster's Dictionary of 1828. In his advertising handbill for his new electrolytic method of producing the metal in 1892, Charles Martin Hall used the -um spelling, despite his constant use of the -ium spelling in all the patents[58] he filed between 1886 and 1903. It has consequently been suggested[by whom?] that the spelling reflects an easier-to-pronounce word with one fewer syllable, or that the spelling on the flyer was a mistake.[citation needed] Hall's domination of production of the metal ensured that aluminum became the standard English spelling in North America.

Q:how to produce aluminium sheet circle?
As for the process, you can use punch.. as for professional machines, for example, stationary press in open type, mechanical press/ single-point press. The material you say is neither big nor small, blanking…(cutting them into sheet circle you want) you can add an uncoiling if it’s coil stock: open-type inclinable press, four-point press,ect. It’s not certainly accurate) punch, oil press, double , four-column hydraulic (oil) press,etc. it needs about 315T,(estimated value, closed type single, blank material cutting (cutting into square ) 2, it contains sheet metal forming technology, crank press: 1: straight side two : 1, but the components you said is simple, only two steps.
Q:Machining of large area aluminum plate in machining center 101500*1500*25 aluminum sheet requires flatness of 0.1-0.15.
Brother, I want to tell you first, the aluminum grinding machine is very rare! Because the aluminum sticky grinding wheel!No money, people are: 1., flying base level, thickness to 26.5 low point! 2. turn the face, press 4 sides, drill rough. The 3. lock bolt is in the hole you hit! Notice here that the lock must be locked one by one! Do you think the workpiece completely tied to lock dead in the fixture, and then processing the thickness to 25.6, the Kong Xian crude drilling reamer locking bolt end processing in place, lock 4. replacement bolts, the original lock bolt hole processing in place! 5., the final flying surface, according to each side of the 0.3 to fly surface, flying surface fixed method, you can use hot melt adhesive or hard rubber mud to fix the workpiece 4 sides and forming the inner hole!The rich person is the vacuum sucker, the base level as much as 26.5, turn over the surface of the vacuum sucker, forming directly!Hope to adopt, typing hard enough!
Q:As for cast aluminum sheet or wrought one, which one has faster heat conduction?
1,duralumin: it's the alloy of aluminum, copper, magnesium, manganese and other metals. it's suitable for compacting by rolling, and it has a higher strength and hardness than common aluminum products. 2, aluminum: it contains many inpurities, is crisp and easy to be smashed.cast aluminum usually is secondary aluminum, and it is produced by remelting the collected old aluminum pots and spoons.3, wrought aluminum: it contains 98% aluminum and 2% or more inpurities, and is comparatively pure aluminum. its soft priority makes it suitable for being pressed into various shapes, aluminum pots,aluminum lunch box,aluminum sheets,aluminum wires,aluminum pipes are all made by wrought will know their defferences from their definition.
Q:What are the colors of iron sheet and aluminum sheet?
both of them are silver white.

Q:What is aluminium oxide sheet?
The aluminum oxide plate is placed in the corresponding electrolyte (such as sulfuric acid, chromic acid, oxalic acid, etc.) as an anode, and electrolysis is carried out under certain conditions and applied current. Anodized aluminum plate on the surface of the formation of alumina thin layer, its thickness is 5~20 microns, hard anodized film up to 60~200 microns.
Q:What are the aluminum plates?
A series of 1000, representing the 1050106010701000 series aluminum is called pure aluminum, all in series 1000 series aluminum content belongs to one of the largest series. The purity can reach more than 99%. Because the technology does not contain other elements, the production process is relatively simple, the price is relatively cheap, is most commonly used in the conventional industry a a series of circulation on the market for most of the 1050 and 1060 series.1000 series aluminum plate to determine the minimum aluminum content in this series according to the amount of the last two Arabia figures, such as the 1050 series of the last two Arabia number 50, according to the international brand naming principles, content must reach to the top 99.5% qualified products. Aluminum Alloy technical standards China (gB/T3880-2006) is also clear that the aluminum content of 1050 aluminum content reached 99.5%. the same 1060 series aluminum must reach above 99.6%.The two and 2000 series aluminum 2A16 (LY16) 2A06 (LY6) features of 2000 series aluminum is high hardness, which belongs to the copper content is the highest, probably around 3-5%.2000 series aluminum plate belongs to aviation aluminum, currently in the conventional industries should not be used. Our current production of 2000 series aluminum manufacturers quality can not less. Compared with foreign countries. Currently imported aluminum is mainly provided by the production enterprises of South Korea and Germany. With the rapid development of China's aerospace industry, aluminum production technology of the 2000 series will be further improved.
Q:Why does the glue of the aluminium curtain wall glue bubble? At the same time, do not bubble on the side glass, what is the reason?
When the air injection in silicone sealant generally refer to the site to complete the injection work, poor working conditions. The workers stood above the tripod glue injection, the uniformity of rubber injection is not easy to master, which is easy to glue in air. After sizing glue scraping the surface pressure, trimming smooth, adhesive seam inside the pad bar are mostly made of polyethylene foam obturator rods in the air inside the glue is not easy to overflow, glue dressing compressed air, will produce tension long outward, sealant seam is generally wide, small thickness, arch high displacement ability of weather resistant glue, hardness is low, no pre curing glue is very soft, compressed air pressure to hold long glue slowly bubbling. This phenomenon is more likely to occur on the application of weather resistant adhesive capable of lifting the arch + 25% or more adhesive displacement. Conversely, some weather resistant adhesives that allow less displacement are higher in hardness and thicker before the gel is solidified.
