Do you know what aluminum is used for?

1. Made of aluminum alloy, aluminum itself is a relatively soft metal, but after adding some alloy components, it will become a hard metal. This light and hard metal is also very resistant to corrosion, and it has been widely used in various fields at once. Such as aircraft, automobiles, ships, rail transit and other manufacturing industries. Also, because of the light weight of aluminum and aluminum alloys, they are also widely used in aerospace equipment. Like our aluminum profiles, aluminum alloys are extruded from aluminum alloys, and aluminum profiles are used for various structural parts, equipment accessories, etc.

2. The ductility of aluminum is very good, second only to gold and silver. Aluminum can be pressed into 0.01mm aluminum foil, as well as aluminum wire, aluminum strip, etc. In recent years, the more popular all-aluminum cars, the body is made of aluminum alloy rolled material.

3. The higher the purity of aluminum, the better the reflection performance of light. Therefore, aluminum plates are often used to make high-quality mirrors. There is also the world's largest radio telescope FAST 500-meter-diameter reflecting sphere made in China, which is made of pieces of aluminum plates spliced ​​together.

4. For architectural ceilings, aluminum has sound-absorbing properties, and aluminum ceilings are used in broadcast rooms and large buildings.

5. It can be used to make wires and cables. Although the conductivity of aluminum is weaker than that of copper, its weight is only 1/3 of that of copper, and the weight of aluminum wire is only half of that of copper. In addition to corrosion resistance, aluminum oxide film has certain insulation properties, and is widely used in electrical appliance manufacturing industry, wire and cable industry and radio industry.

6. The thermal conductivity of aluminum is 3 times that of iron, and it can be used to make various exchangers, heat dissipation materials, cooking utensils, etc. Like the aluminum alloy radiator we often do, it is also an extruded aluminum profile.

7. Due to its strong corrosion resistance, aluminum and aluminum alloys are often used in chemical reactors, medical equipment, petroleum refining plants, oil and gas pipelines, etc.
