Aluminum is an amazing metal. It can be recycled almost indefinitely – in fact, nearly three-quarters of all aluminum produced in the last 230 years is still in use today. Recycling aluminum uses 95% less energy than making metal from new materials.
All Foils is a top supplier of aluminum products, specifically aluminum sheet. We carry a variety of aluminum sheet alloys from 1000 to 8000 Series. Each specific aluminum sheet alloy has varying elements that affect properties such as: tensile strength, hardness, heat treatability, ductility, elongation, and more. Because of its varying properties and consistent strength, being strong yet thin and lightweight, 2024 aluminum sheet is a popular material for many reasons.
In its purest form, aluminum has no real structural use as it is too soft. However, when alloyed with other metals, it becomes stronger and can be used in a variety of manufacturing applications.
· 6061 Aluminum sheet- This is one of the most common aluminum alloys for general use. It is a medium to high-strength alloy that can be heat treated, and it has exceptional weldability and good corrosion resistance. It is typically used for heavy duty structures such as ships, truck frames, bridges, aerospace applications, rail coaches and truck frames, among others.
· 7075 Aluminumsheet- This has zinc as the primary additional element and has a strength comparable to steel. It has good fatigue strength, but limited corrosion resistance. It can be easily shaped, chipped and manipulated by machine.
· 2024 Aluminum sheet– This is a high strength alloy with excellent resistance to fatigue. It is easy to machine at high speed, and has good stress corrosion cracking resistance. These characteristics make it the ideal choice for a wide variety of applications, including rivets, connectors, aircraft structures and hydraulic valve bodies, among others.
