What is aluminum alloy

wallpapers Tech 2021-01-13
Aluminum alloy is incredibly versatile, robust and reliable. Therefore, they are very popular in engineering, construction, and automotive applications. Besides steel, they are one of the most widely used metal materials. Although aluminum has some amazing properties as a pure element, it may not be enough to achieve high durability. For this reason, it can be combined with other elements to form alloys, which are exponentially more durable and suitable for industrial applications. Aluminum alloys are particularly ideal when engineers seek to reduce the weight of items (such as airplanes) without compromising strength.
It is not surprising that aluminum is one of the most popular non-ferrous metals in construction, engineering, and industry today. Although their performance is widely recognized by engineers and manufacturers, most people may not understand the performance of aluminum.

What is aluminum alloy?
"Alloys" are mixtures of different metal elements, usually created to enhance the strength and durability of materials. Aluminum alloys usually consist of the latter as the main metal in the mixture, depending on the desired application, and are usually combined with other elements (such as silicon, tin, manganese, and even copper, tin, and magnesium). With the right combination of elements, aluminum can achieve higher strength, and in some cases, aluminum may even outperform steel. The alloy has the same advantages as pure aluminum, and because of its lower melting point, it is also cost-effective.
An alloy based on aluminum with many other alloying elements is one of the light metal materials. In addition to the general characteristics of aluminum, aluminum alloys also have specific characteristics of alloys due to the different types and quantities of added alloying elements. The density of aluminum alloy is 2.63~2.85g/cm, high strength (σb is 110~650MPa), specific strength is close to high alloy steel; specific stiffness is higher than steel, good casting performance and plastic processing performance, good electrical conductivity, Thermal conductivity, good corrosion resistance and weldability, can be used as structural materials, and has a wide range of applications in aerospace, aviation, transportation, construction, electromechanical, light and daily necessities.
