With the maturity of aluminum plate smelting production technology, this highly cost-effective metal material has rapidly entered all aspects of people's production and life, and has become an excellent substitute for traditional metals. In some traditional industries, aluminum plate has a broad market prospect. Here's an introduction to these industries:
Aluminum plate for can
In recent years, the beverage market is growing, canned drinks also ushered in a new period. 3004 aluminum alloy is used for the can body, and 5 series aluminum plate is mainly used for the aluminum can. 5182 is widely used. Compared with foreign markets, aluminum cans in China started very late, but with the popularity of canned drinks, China has gradually realized that the market is open. As the production of aluminum alloy can is relatively high-grade aluminum, and in the production process and other aspects of strict requirements, so most of our aluminum alloy can rely on imports. After realizing this vast market, many domestic manufacturers have begun to study the production and use of can materials. This market is rising, which is also an opportunity and challenge for enterprise development.
Aluminum plate for container
Aluminum used in containers should be suitable for shipping, but also have hardness requirements. Therefore, 3-Series and 5-series aluminum alloys used in containers are common. Since China's accession to the WTO, it has gradually played an increasingly important role in the world economy. The import and export volume has increased year by year, and China's container consumption has increased sharply, bringing another new opportunity for the aluminum industry.
Aerospace aluminum plate
The aluminum plate used in aviation is high-end aluminum, which has strict requirements for production process. The commonly used aluminum plate is 7 series aluminum plate. Aerospace and military aspects, such as China's aircraft manufacturing, Shenzhou spacecraft series, satellites and so on. Aircraft, spaceships and other aviation machines require high hardness of materials, and the density of materials should not be too large. 7 series aluminum plate can meet these requirements
Aluminum plate is used in all aspects of life, and now all over the world advocate energy conservation and emission reduction. Aluminum alloy, an environment-friendly material, is gradually improving its status in the country's active construction.
