The Difference of Aluminum Ingots and Aluminum Alloy Ingots

The difference of aluminum ingots and alumnium alloy ingots

Aluminum as a metal material, due to its own characteristies, such as beautiful, light-weight, corrosion resistance and other advantages. It is widely favored by the customers, especially the automotive industry which has been widely used.

Aluminum ingots

Aluminum or aluminium is a chemical element in the boron group with symbol Al and atomic number 13. Aluminum is remarkable for the metal’s low density and its ability to resist corrosion through the phenomenon of passivation, which are vital to the aerospace industry and important in transportation and structures.

The pure aluminum ingots with high purity (99.7%) of aluminum can not meet the needs of industrial requirements, because of the no good physical performance.

Aluminum Alloy Ingots

Aluminum alloys are alloys in which aluminum is the predomiant metal. The typical alloying elements are copper, magnesium, managanese, silicon, tin and zinc, to improve the physical properties. There are two principal classifications, namely casting alloys and wrought alloys, both of which are further subdivided into the categories heat-treatable and non-heat-treatable.

The normal aluminum alloy we use are 6061, 6063, 6082, 7075, 356, 380, A380, etc
