What is Aluminum profile?

Aluminum profiles are products born from aluminum alloys that are transformed into shaped objects through the extrusion process. Aluminum's unique combination of physical characteristics mostly depends on this process. Aluminum extrusions are used in several fields because this metal is: Strong and stable.

Features of Aluminum profile

The production of aluminum profile frame is the frame profile produced by extrusion of aluminum bar.

Corrosion resistance: the density of aluminum profile is only 2.7g/cm3, about 1 / 3 of that of steel, copper or brass (7.83g/cm3, 8.93g/cm3, respectively). In most environmental conditions, including air, water (or salt water), petrochemical and many chemical systems, aluminum can show excellent corrosion resistance.

Conductivity: aluminum profiles are often selected because of their excellent conductivity. On the basis of equal weight, the conductivity of aluminum is close to 1 / 2 of that of copper.

Thermal conductivity: the thermal conductivity of aluminum alloy is about 50-60% of that of copper, which is beneficial to the manufacture of heat ex changer, evaporator, heating appliances, cooking utensils, as well as the cylinder head and radiator of automobile.

Non ferromagnetic: aluminum profiles are non ferromagnetic, which is an important feature for the electrical and electronic industries. Aluminum profiles can not self ignite, which is important for applications involving handling or contact with flammable and explosive materials.

Mach inability: the mach-inability of aluminum profiles is excellent. In all kinds of deformed aluminum alloy and cast aluminum alloy, as well as in all kinds of states that these alloys have after they are produced, the change of machining characteristics is quite large, which requires special machine tools or technologies.

Form ability: specific tensile strength, yield strength, ductility and corresponding work hardening rate control the change of allowable deformation.

Recover ability: aluminum has a very high recover-ability, and the characteristics of recycled aluminum are almost the same as that of primary aluminum.

The above is about the features of aluminum profile.

The aluminum profile uses are far too great to overlook. This simple, yet ingenious product of modern metal fabrication has brought numerous advantages and benefits. It has been used in a range of structural, modeling, or framing applications. As products of the extrusion process, aluminum product manufacturers have been able to produce differentiated extruded profiles that have unique qualities. Read on to learn more about their many different applications.
