Common models and uses of marine aluminum panels

Jul 28, 2018

Marine aluminum panels are essential materials for shipbuilding. For shipbuilding companies, it is extremely important to have aluminum alloy ship plates with superior corrosion resistance and stable supply.

There are also several types and uses of marine aluminum plates. Several main marine aluminum plates are listed below. 7075 marine aluminum plate, which has good corrosion resistance and oxidation resistance, it also has good easy processing and wear resistance, and good workability, high strength below 150 °C, and special Good low temperature strength, poor welding performance, stress corrosion cracking tendency, two-stage aging can improve the performance of anti-SCC.

6061 marine aluminum plate has excellent processing properties, excellent welding characteristics and electroplating properties, good corrosion resistance, toughness, easy polishing, color film, and excellent oxidation effect.

The main alloying element in the 5083 marine aluminum alloy is magnesium, which has good corrosion resistance and weldability, as well as medium strength. Excellent corrosion resistance makes the 5083 alloy widely used in marine applications such as ships, as well as in automobiles, aircraft welding parts, subway light rails, pressure vessels that require strict fire protection (such as liquid tankers, refrigerated trucks, refrigerated containers), refrigeration units, TV towers, Drilling equipment, transportation equipment, etc. Good strength, corrosion resistance and good machinability in non-heat treatable alloys. The surface is beautiful after anodizing. Can be processed into optical mechanical parts. Ship parts and wire clamps.

There are also 5052 marine aluminum plates for AL-Mg alloy aluminum and aluminum plates. It is the most widely used rust-proof aluminum. This alloy has high strength, especially with anti-fatigue strength: high plasticity and corrosion resistance, and can not be heat treated. Strengthening, plasticity is good in semi-cold hardening, low plasticity in cold work hardening, good corrosion resistance, good weldability, poor machinability and polishing. 5052 aluminum plate is often used for sheet metal parts of transportation vehicles and ships, instruments, street lamp brackets and rivets, hardware products, electrical enclosures, etc.

There are also a variety of marine aluminum panels such as 2024 marine aluminum panels and 1060 marine aluminum panels. Aluminum alloy has many superior properties as shipbuilding materials. It is widely used in the shipbuilding industry. Ships are developing in the direction of aluminum. Marine aluminum alloy is a promising material.
