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:cinergy field seats: metal? aluminum?
Aluminum
Q:What will reflect light more- aluminum foil or white paper?
definitely aluminum foil
Q:aluminum can recycling question?
Yes, they do. My Recycling Center accepts whole, torn-up, or compacted/crushed aluminum cans. We even accept aluminum pet-food cans. Since they are shredded to prepare them for recycling, it doesn't matter. The only time you should not compact or crush your aluminum cans is if you are using one of those automatic can-munchers that you can find in some parking lots that pays you immediately. Compacted aluminum cans will jam those machines. Aluminum can be recycled over and over, unlike other recyclables such as plastic, which can typically only be recycled once.
Q:Excuse me: how much is the price of the thick 3mm 1000 *2000mm aluminum sheet per square meter?.
(the current price of aluminum ingot is about: 15000 yuan / ton, plus board processing fee 2000/ tons, =18000 yuan / ton), the proportion of 2.71*3mm* aluminum plate price 18 yuan / kg, =146.34 yuan / square. 2MM*2.71* price 18 yuan =97.26 yuan / square.
Q:Are electrons in aluminum free?
Any element that allows the transfer of electrical flow to move across it usually has the characteristic of having free movement electrons in the outer shell. This is why metals are particularly good at electrical conduction. The best metal for transferring electrical charge is silver followed by copper and then aluminum. Much electrical wire is made from pure aluminum because it is cheaper than copper or silver and the resistance to flow is only slightly lower than copper. The electrons in the outer shells are still bound to the aluminum nucleus but they are free to accept a charge from neighboring aluminum atoms and transfer that charge to the next aluminum in the electrical flow. This is basically the definition of electrical resistance. Copper performs this transfer more efficiently than aluminum so it's electrical resistivity is less than aluminums. But in both base metals, the outer electrons never leave the atom, they simply transfer their charge to the next atom in line
Q:Where is the difference between the 5052 aluminum plate and the 1060 Aluminum plate?
Ingredients:5052 alloy aluminum (aluminum magnesium alloy, aluminum content of about 95%, magnesium content of about 4%, as well as some other trace metal elements)1060 is pure aluminum (aluminum containing 99.6%, margin for other metal elements)Physical property:Similarly, the two kinds of aluminum, 5052 to 1060 higher in hardness, elongation, tensile strength and so on are not the same. What are the specific states (H14, H32, H24, O, etc.)?Prices are usually 5052 above 1060. How much specific higher, according to different manufacturers and production processes vary.
Q:How can you identify aluminum?
To start with, are you refering to aluminum as metal, an aluminum compound, or a solution with aluminum present as ions? If it is metaallic aluminum, it won't stick to a magnet, and it will react with HCl, however this isn't sufficient to definately say it is aluminum, it would be better to get a density, melting point, etc.
Q:What are the aluminum plates?
The three and 3000 series aluminum on behalf of 300330033A21. Also known as China's 3000 series aluminum antirust aluminum production process is more outstanding.3000 series aluminum is made of manganese as main components. The contents of 1.0-1.5 in between. Is a series of anti rust function better. Routine application in air conditioning, ice box, car etc. in the moist environment, price more than 1000 written columns, is a commonly used alloy series.The four and 4000 series aluminum aluminum on behalf of 4A014000 series belongs to the high silicon content series. Usually silicon content between 4.5-6.0%. Belongs to the building material, mechanical parts, forging materials, welding materials; low melting point, good corrosion resistance of the product description: has the characteristics of heat resistance, wear resistanceThe five and 5000 Series 5052.5005.5083.5A05 series.5000 series aluminum plate belongs to the representative of the more commonly used aluminium alloy series, the main elements of magnesium, magnesium content in 3-5%. Also called aluminum magnesium alloy. The main characteristics of low density, high tensile strength, elongation rate is high. In the same area under the weight of the aluminium magnesium alloy is lower than that of other series. It is commonly used in aviation, such as aircraft fuel tank. The application in the conventional industries are more widely. The processing technology for slab continuous casting and rolling, which belongs to the aluminum plate series so can do deep processing. Oxidation belongs to one of the more mature aluminum series in China 5000 series aluminum plate.
Q:How many molecules are in 1 square foot of aluminum foil?
Since aluminum foil is an amalgamation of various metals you would first need to know the full chemical breakdown in order to determine how many molecules there are in a square foot of aluminum foil. That said, if your foil was 100% aluminum, you could determine the number of AL atoms by first determining the mass of the foil and dividing by the molecular weight of AL. Multiply that by 6.022 x 10^23 to determine the number of atoms.
