Precautions for Manufacturers to Correctly Choose Aluminum Plates

1. How to choose the right aluminum plates?

At present, there are many kinds of aluminum plates on the market. Many people don't know which aluminum plate to choose when making a selection. Because there are indeed too many styles at present, then the question is how to choose the right one, like polished aluminium sheet.


Many people pay attention to the thickness of the aluminum plate when choosing aluminum plates. However, the quality of the real aluminum plate is not the thickness of the aluminum plate, but the material of the aluminum plate. An aluminum plate with a good material is first of all will have a good gloss at first, because many knowledgable people will choose an aluminum plate with better gloss when choosing, because only in this way can our entire use process be more relaxed. When choosing aluminum plates, thin thickness is also very important. Many people choose thick ones. In fact, when choosing aluminum plates, we should pay more attention to those with uniform thickness. The quality of this aluminum plate is better, conducive to our usual practicality!


2. Matters needing attention in the selection of aluminum plate grades

Mold aluminum plates need good mechanical properties, strong applicability, easy processing, and the most important thing is to have a certain high-strength heat-treatability. According to the different uses of the mold and their respective characteristics, the mold aluminum plate also needs to have special requirements such as corrosion resistance and oxidation resistance. According to the performance requirements of mold aluminum plates, among the 1-8 series aluminum plates, the aluminum plates that can be used for mold manufacturing mainly include the medium hardness 5/6 series alloy and the stronger hardness 2/7 series alloy. The 5 series is an aluminum alloy with magnesium as the main alloying element, also known as magnesium aluminum alloy. Its alloy state mainly includes O state, HXX and HXXX state. The 6-series aluminum plate is an extruded alloy added with Al-Mg-Si elements. At present, more than 70% of the world's aluminum extrusion materials are produced with 6-series alloys.
