All About Al: Picking Out The Appropriate Aluminum Alloy

Canada made an estimated 3.12 million tonnes of major aluminum in 2020. Stronger alloys used for aerospace like 2024, 6061, and 7075 can be strengthened making use of heat treating processes. The extra basic-goal alloys, like 1100, 3003, 5052, and 5086, are only strengthened using cold operating or strain hardening processes. Examples of these cold working processes involve rolling, stretching and drawing via dies. Modern production of the aluminium metal…Read More
